Figure 28 - Parts cabinets with small drawers are perfect for staying organized
I have 10 or more large parts cabinets completely full of salvaged semiconductors, all sorted by value, type or use. Although 90% of the inventory came from free scrap boards, there must be thousands of dollars in usable components in there now. Every resistor costs something if you have to order it from a supplier, so don't pass up any scrap boards for salvage. Tell your friends and family that all dead appliances are to come to your lab for dissection, and build up that junk pile as much as you can!
