Figuring out what to salvage
December 21, 2010
So I've got several computer parts lying around and while I was replacing a button in one of my mouses with one from another mouse that was broken I was thinking to myself what could I salvage to be used again?
So how do I know what parts are goodies to salvage and what I should throw in the recycling bin for computers(once I find where to recycle computer parts).
When I get back from picking up some stuff from a local shop I'll be going back at the old mouse to remove it's LED that it has to light up the scroll wheel, not sure if while I'm at it should desolder the little black circuit thingies(yes I really don't know their name lol I wanna may microcontroller but feel that's incorrect)
