I’m not seeing many pictures of equipment–which is what would be actually useful. If you PM me the contact info, I can coordinate to go over and look at stuff.
These are much more up-to-date than the components we had. However, it’s still components and not worth carrying.
Here’s the problem with those components, this Arduino kit is $25:
This Arduino and components kit is $35 from Amazon:
All the components in those are “brand new”. They haven’t been soldered/desoldered. They haven’t been reverse volted, heated, abused, etc. They will mostly work with the occasional hiccup.
It simply isn’t worth the time wasted storing, organizing, searching, and possibly debugging components that are that cheap.
Let me go even further, many of the RF development boards (Bluetooth, 2.4GHz, 433MHz, WiFi) are actually FREE. The sales representatives for the companies selling these kinds of IoT RF boards (TI, Nordic, Dialog, OnSemi, etc.) will pretty much hand one or two them to you for free if you’re nice to them and willing to meet them in person–they’ll probably even buy you lunch, to boot. If you’re actually teaching a class, they’ll probably give you a couple dozen just to get people using their stuff.
(Side Note: Microchip has always been an odd stingy exception to the rule.)
It’s simply not worth the space carrying cheap components like these.
To be fair, I did keep an eye out for useful components while I was dumping the piles of junk. I have a very old Mesa Boogie guitar amp that I desperately need to overhaul–so I will recognize audio/guitar amp stuff when it bites me in the nose. I was keeping an eye out for strange but useful stuff that might not be microelectronics (audio taper pots, mechanical dial pots, switches with digit indicators, etc.), but there really wasn’t much of that (I kept some old diode/triode/tetrode tubes–that’s great but they’ll need to be run through a tube tester to do a quick check that they’re not bad (ie. still have vacuum)–exactly where am I supposed to find that nowadays?)
