The Electronic Peasant likes to get more enjoyment from DIY for less money, and sometimes uses obsolete parts as well. Salvaging old equipment can provide many important parts at little or no cost. And it's environmentally friendly to save this stuff from going to the landfill! There's gold in them there things!!! Older equipment like this is being disposed of in huge quantities, available for free or very inexpensively.
