Do you salvage capacitors, resistors, diodes, etc. from old/broken electronics?
Same here. I do have a strange fondness for switches, panel lenses, and meters. The older the better. I have a big collection of pre 1950s electronic junk.Mainly heatsinks, LEDs, small motors, stepper motors, optics, power supplies, and FS mirrors, fans, computer accessories, just to name a few. I also find a lot of good quality wire in stuff.
I don't bother with caps, transistors, or resistors though, if I need those I buy new.
