I trolled the dollar store for some bits i could breakdown for parts..or just to see how they worked…if you are looking for button batteries, this is absolutely the place. I ended up making out of course. besides all the batteries, i got a couple of swell little speakers, some LEDs and some switches. No idea what i will be doing with any of them, but it gives me some parts to play with. BTW the pill containers make excellent containers for extra bits.
I got a used fan from the repair shop for $2 and put it together with a salvaged switch and battery connection from the thrift shop clock radio. Finally soldered something together that i can use.
I was feeling ambitious and broke out another little soldering project, and a few minutes later i had to pack it all up and put it away. the Desoldering gave me a migraine. I can’t do another thing until i get some lighted magnifier that will relieve the eye strain. I have a feeling the components are going to get smaller and smaller as i go along.
