UNSCREWED is the perfect resource for anyone looking to salvage hidden treasures from old electronics and appliances. Author Ed Sobey, founder of the National Inventors Hall of Fame, will show how items found in an old flatbed scanner can be used to build a desk lamp; how a DustBuster impeller can be converted to quickly prep a charcoal grill; how the gears, rollers, and stepper motor found in an ink-jet printer can become a robot; and much more. Each of the 50+ deconstruction projects includes a "treasures cache" of the components to be found and step-by-step instructions, with photos, on how to safely extract the working components.
