Big Box Of Parts U.S.A. Only

Postby systemstech » Mon Aug 20, 2012 10:37 am

Hi everyone,

It's Time to start a U.S. only box of parts. Same rules as before.

Rules:
- Take the parts out you can really can use.
- Replace them with parts you can't use (please add an equal amount of stuff)
- Send the box to the next person within a week.
- post a picture of what you got out of it and a small description what you are planning to do with
- No address information in this topic Please use the PM system for this

This will be a large flat rate priority mail box and will cost around $16 to ship.
Here's a quick look into some of the highlights in the box:

Lcd displays 16x2, VFD displays 20x2, LED display(500+ leds), stepper motors, cpld, fpga, memory, switches, connectors, and alot more. A lot of the stuff is pulls from old boards, printers, signs, radios.
Recycle and reuse is the motto.

The box will ship out on AUG the 27 Monday morning.

Who wants to be part of this chain?

Well looks like its just you and me. I can't wait to see what you think of or come up with to use the stuff in the box. PM me your address before Friday and I'll ship it out Monday morning Aug, 27 and I will PM you the tracking number.

Have fun

here is the list so far 1.sqkybeaver, 2.schazamp. Some time next week after sqkybeaver gets his box and gets his goodies out then schazamp should PM sqkybeaver his address. Hopefully we can keep this thing going all around the USA.

Box went out today ahead of hurricane Isaac. Didn't want to get it stuck in FL due to storm.

I'm interested as well. Being a fulltime RVer sometimes I won't be able to receive/send mail.
