If you have anything you no longer want, list it here, either for free, swap or sale. You can also list the things you want.



swap / give away

  • 7inch touch screen overlay, usb mod kit for eeepc 701 series.

I probably have other stuff, just can't think what at the moment.


Sale or Swap

  • DVB-C to firewire thingy
  • DVB-S card
  • IBM Thinkpad X31 with about 8 batteries, but a dodgy screen.
  • Nintendo DS
  • Sony PSP


  • Stereo amp and speakers
  • Working car or boat batteries


Sale or swap

  • 2x PCI DVB-T cards


  • A Dyson DC-16 handheld vacuum, with a knackered battery and no charger. Or tools.


  • A crappy electric drill, at least 18V


I can pick up stuff in London and out and about via car and will gladly come scavenge stuff to save it from a skip.

Sale or Swap

  • Misc servers, no disks, Celeron/P4-era, dodgy cases, not proper server-grade things


  • Piles of odds and ends computer-tech wise, including some serviceable PSUs, old hard disks (some broken but still spinning, good for parts)
  • Newbie-friendly computer science books (Algorithmics: The science of computing, Computer Science: An introduction amongst others)
  • Odds and ends of BNC/F-type terminated 75 ohm patch cables and couplers
  • Satellite signal strength meter
  • Various WRT54s in need of JTAGging to debrick (G, GS variants)


  • Radio receiver/scanners
  • Fibre networking gear (FC HBAs, NICs, switches, disk arrays)
  • Wireless/wired gear (old APs, routers, switches)
  • Batteries, uninterruptable power supplies and parts/spares
  • Storage equipment - old NAS boxes, tape drives, etc (nothing under 100Gb unless it's something like a 73GB/10kRPM FC/SCSI disk)
  • RC/flight gear (transmitters, receivers, motors, props, ESCs, old throwaway models/TXRX pairs)



  • C/Port and C/Dock for Dell C600 etc. laptops
  • Digital BC17F-10 cable for RL01/02
  • Small bench grinder
  • Radio controlled model glider (a fairly fast slope-soarer - not a good learning plane) claimed by deafanon
  • Large electronic whiteboard, missing pen/sensor
  • Seagate Savvio 15k.1 ST973451SS 2.5" SAS hdd. Don't know if it works.

Sale or swap

  • Scroll saw
  • Small oilless air compressor, suitable for paint spraying and small air tools


  • An old Power PC Mac, with OS 9 or OS X. Powerbook would be nice.
  • A 0.5HP (0.37kW) flange-mount single phase electric motor


Various stuff that I could bring to the space by arrangement, for temporary use (some of these are heavy and most would require a car trip so not trivial):

  • Testgear - signal generators, DVMs, counters, oscilloscopes, logic analysers, spectrum analysers, LCR measurement, PSUs, current probes etc. Ask if you're looking for something.
  • Mechanical - sheet folder, toggle press, die filer, power hacksaw, grinding vice, scrollsaws, MIG welder, forge/brazing hearth, bar cropper.

Mike (earthshine, not the other guy that keeps calling himself Mike)


  • Pair of hifi speaker stands.



  • 4x Hawker PC680 deep cycle sealed lead-acid batteries, 12V 7Ah if I recall correctly - about 8 years old but kept topped up regularly
  • 0.47 and 0.1 ohm resistors, 200W


  • Clockwork motor
  • Kindle 3 screen (or any broken Kindle 3 if you suspect the screen works)

alexs (find me on IRC)

Sale or Swap

  • Various electric drills
  • DeWalt chop saw

  • 20" ViewSonic LCD monitor


Some sort of OBD-II adapter. Anything fun.

Alex P (creature on IRC)

For sale or swap

  • IBM Thinkpad floppy drive. Taken from an IBM Thinkpad T20. FRU P/N 05K9206.
  • Western Digital MyBook Pro 500GB. This thing tends to give me I/O errors after it's been mounted for a few days, but it's about a 50/50 chance that's down to my PC's crappy USB handling than the drive. It's got a USB2.0 and Firewire interface, so if nothing else you could use it as a smart new drive enclosure.
  • Brand new Acer keyboard and mouse. Came with my Acer Aspire Revo, but I'm using it as a headless server. Both are white, and still in their packaging. The mouse is optical and has a scrollwheel; the keyboard has that flat-button style that Apple keyboards have these days. It's a little smaller than standard, but not as small as a laptop keyboard. Both are USB devices.
  • Electric guitar. This thing's an undeniable clunker. The action is pretty shit, the electronics could do with a soldering iron to make the connections less dodgy, and the paint job is nasty. It is a body someone rescued from a skip and bolted a new neck to. But! If you wanted a cheap way to try out the guitar, or smash one up without spending too much, or try being a luthier, or just leave it lying around the house to impress girls – this is the guitar for you.


  • 3.5" internal floppy drive.
  • VGA cable.
  • 2x kettle leads (power cables).



Email me if you want any of this:

  • Microsoft joystick (serial port)


contact via wiki user talk page


  • Matching pair of bike pedals.


Sale or Swap

  • PCI ADSL1 card


  • VIA EPIA M BIOS chip (020A)

I have an old laptop which doesn't work. The repair shop thinks the motherboard is bent / flexed which has probably broken memory or graphics card connection. I've taken the hard drive, but if anyone has any use for the rest of it (eg. screen?) it's yours.

  • Loads of spare capacity for web hosting/other internet facing services. Might be free for the right kind of non-profit project.

Broken Microwave (free)

does anyone have need of a broken microwave (it don't heat and the timer sticks at 5 minute spot).

if you're handy it could be repaired, but i'm not and the parts and labour would've exceeded the cost of the microwave (bought it 8 years ago for something daft like £25).

everything else works i.e. lamp and turn table. not sure if it could be salvaged for parts.

if interested, you'll need to collect from surbiton. weighs about 15kgs

plan on taking it to the recycling station in two weeks time (posted on 19th of Sept)

contact via email or twitter (see profile for deets)

I will take anything, incomplete broken etc. Hornby compatible would be fab, but I'm not choosy.

contact via email or twitter (see profile for deets)



I've donated a mountain bike to the workshop (it's in there with a sign on). Please feel free to take, use, cannibalise and hack it to bits. It's got two flat tyres and a loose/damaged left pedal crank, but otherwise isn't a total wreck, so I hope it's of use to someone. Taken


If anyone has any, I'm in need of old-style Raleigh rubber pedal blocks and leather-faced rubber brake blocks (the type for wet-braking on chrome rims), and rubber handle-bar grips actually, while I'm asking! They are all replacement parts needed for an old English 3-Speed bike (http://www.sheldonbrown.com/english-3.html).
