In this video, I will show you how I get cheap electronic components by salvaging from circuit boards.

It is a really cool way to get components cheaply.

  2. Baahhhh don't use this torch!! 🤯😫🤮
    Buy a more powerful soldering-iron and use solderwick!!!!
    I recommend to desolder all 2w+ resistors and bigger smd components like Mosfets, bigger caps and shunts.
    Tip:Big THT diodes are also often useful

  3. It looks like you could use at least one more parts drawers cabinet. I wish I still had the patience and eyesight to salvage components. 👍
