When I worked for a Computer Manufacturer back in the early 1980's we rob parts off boards that were thrown away. My main wants were LEDs and the large power capacitors (caps) from power supplies (not found today).
We (friends always good for free help) experimented with the LEDs and actually the large caps for a backup power supply to the LEDs. Very interesting and fun. Somewhere down the line I guess people learn to make big bucks from LEDs for marine use.
I enjoy making what I can. My $54 fuse panel will be the equivilent of what most people pay $200-300 for. True, mine may not be as pretty as I want to use the original manufacturers panel.
But, I just wanted to ramble and say I found a place called "All Electronics" I think you can search or type allelectronics.com and here the link for an easy;
All Electronics | Electronic and Electro-Mechanical Parts and Supplies at Discount Prices
I just made my first cheap order to see how they do. Hope to get in a few days.
If, they seem OK and reputable I want to order some electroluminescent strips from them to experiment. Then I can recommend them better. I really hope they OK. But, I can order a D.C. Volt meter from Frys.com for 1/3 price, so always do a little browsing to know prices!
I not sure of your experience with electrics, but, for what something sell for when it say "marine" I learned to make for very less and have fun. One day I hope to post a picture of my $200-300 panel that cost $54.
Just learn to Solder, follow instructions and have a fun winter hobby.
