Where to find parts without goin' to the store.


This topic will help you find parts WITHOUT having to pay a whole lot on parts. 


Problem: I need a bunch of pager motors, (insert a store) has it but it's too expensive!

Solution: Destroy your old cell phones and take out the pager motor.


Basically what I'm saying is this: electronic devices always have something useful in them. If you're not using it, great! You can start destroying your stuff to use its parts.

Other useful electronics:

TV Remote: Infared LEDs

Useless moving toys: motors, switches, etc.

Broken RC car: Battery pack, receiver, h-bridge, motors

RumbeRobots: gear reduction motors

Computer: LEDs, Screen, Servo Motors, fans, motors, etc.
