Found this at my school in the broadcasting department. It makes me mad on many levels

    My reaction friends on exactly what they are, because they're certainly not old enough to be collector pieces, but I suspect they're not exactly new either...

    I'll have one of those on my keyring if you don't mind

    @Zaphod65 most pentiums, a few Athlon 64 v2s and 4 i3 cpus. I may have lifted a few of those last ones...

    What do you think of my keyring?

    They are gold plated so little splash of Hcl +h2o2 will dissolve base metals then just take the gold dissolve it in aqua regia and well then percipitate it out of solution in powder and then melt it into a tiny gold ball.

    I would bet they are there for a good reason.

    @mbj047 honestly I doubt it. There are things like this just lieing around our school.

    @n3xus I did work for a government funded school where we needed to spend our budget before the year ended or we'd lose money. Ordered all sort of useless crap.

    @theaviator Had also one, but drilled the hole too close to the corner so it eventially broke off.

    My debut novel is very gorey and bloody... I can handle gore on so many levels, but this... This is enough to shock me!

    what kind are they

    @Haxk20 Unless you do it in enormous bulk batches, and do a lot of searching for cheap chemicals, you won't make much of a profit. Especially if you consider labor costs!

    It's a lot of fun though. 😁

    I did a lot of PCB etching for home automation and robotics, and recently found out how cheap it is to just let someone in China make a single custom PCB and even solder all the components... but I have to admit that it takes away a lot of the joy.
