I'm looking for any old/broken electronic bits and bobs you guys may have lying around. Stuff you might otherwise throw away. I want them to salvage electronic components so they can be reused in other projects.

The kind of things I'm looking for are old printers /scanners/mobile phones, broken or working it doesn't matter. Generally the older the better as older devices tend to use bigger components that are much easier to salvage. I'm not really looking for monitors (CRT or TFT) as they tend not to have much salvageable kit when compared to their size and postage costs.

The parts will be used by me and other students at the University of Kent, for building a wide range of projects.

I'm really hoping to be able to pick up the stuff for free, but i will obviously pay postage costs (this collect+ seems like a good option). If you are at all interested in what the stuff you donate will be used for, let me know and i will try and keep you up to date on how they are being used. :)

Anything would be considered so let me know what you have!

Many Thanks

Danger, thanks for your reply! In all honesty modern PC parts are not that easy to salvage bits from, and will cost a fair bit to post, so ill pass on them :) As for the HDDs it seems a shame to pull apart a 50GB HDD just for the stepper motor, if they were 1 or 2GB Drives i woul;d take them, but i think 50 GB could be better used elsewhere, thanks though!

October Girl, i will PM you, many thanks!

Unfortunately this is too vague a request for FS/T as the thread could be bumped with hundreds of items being offered.

As you would like the items to be freebie donations with only p&p charges applied then we'll move this thread from FS/T to MISC as its a 'Freebie' request thread & bump rules don't apply - but only p&p charges can be applied. Thanks.
