where to get spear parts for junk parts robots

it would be cool to be able to just take apart a calculater, an old printer or tv and have enough knoledge to turn its parts into a funtional robot. But maybe you can!! And im  about to show you how, all you need are:

some intermediate electrical engeneering knoledge, curcuits etc. 

* a multimeter (an advanced electricity meter for curcuits)

* old tv,printer,electrical toy like spy gear etc.

will hrlp me on missions and having fun equiped with voicecontrol
