Rebuild and reuse? Answered
I was just thinking today. I want to get a soldering gun with a desoldering bulb or some kind of device to suck up solder so I can remove parts. I have nearly heaps of old computer motherboards, video cards, ram, and all sort of other things taking up space. And I'm not talking like pentium 3 or old p4 parts, more like P1 and even a few tandy and 486 parts kicking around. I've seen people making earrings and wreaths out of these old parts, but I'm thinking more practical, like what could I be building out of these components. I've never really gotten into things like pic programming and building things on bread boards, however I do have the know how to operate a soldering gun and I wanna get into these things. Could someone point me in the right direction or point me to a forum at least?? It'd be greatly appreciated because I really need a new hobby to do in my spare time instead of blowing my amps.
