find components capacitors voltage triggers

Where to find free electronic components that are usually expensive in store?

Hi everyone,

I am fairly new here and bit low on money! Who isnt these days... I have been scavenging parts from old computers, motherboards, power supplies, old tvs, vcr etc.

I have been trying to find some super capacitors 1F etc for solar projects and voltage triggers like 1381 etc. Whats a best old/broken electronics to look for these things?

I also encourage LMR to make a super thread / list of where people like myself can find components thats are hard to find and/or expensive to by from a store.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
