Selling Harvested Components

Sun Feb 25, 2018 10:40 pm

I've recently worked with a bunch of old electronics to process them for disposal. Being an avid R-Pi user, I got to thinking that parts from the old machines could be useful for projects and all sorts of stuff. The only question is, would I be the only one to find this useful?

So really, would other R-Pi aficionados be interested in buying low cost used electronic parts?

Complete working sub assemblies such as power supplies could be useful.
However for components it's not worth the effort even if just for yourself.
There will be few parts that can actually be reused due to leads cut too short.... Can't id parts.... Damaged during removal.... ESD issues etc.
Also very time consuming.
Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated Raspbian Stretch w/ Desktop OS.
