Where to find parts without goin' to the store.
April 13, 2012
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.
