As I said in my introduction, I like to remove components from the old devices and reuse them.
I already started a tutorial on udemy, but is taking too long, and is not for this use, but for design purpose.

So: what books / tutorials do you recommend me for safe take out of components from old devices and also put them in some order

I am interested in understanding the types of components and if they have sensitives or dangerously on desoldering (eg. capacitor need to de descharging before desoldering), some advice how to manually soldering / desoldering SMD components. ( I seen that flux is a must there...), but I don't feel that I know just yet all that is needed to remove components. I may miss something important.
Until now I know about resistors, capacitors, inductors, diodes, fuses, transistors, IC for logic gates, controllers, and pin headers.

I don't know if you follow greatscott's youtube channel , but he has some thoughts on this matter ...

Anything seems possible when you don't know what you're talking about.

Hi Cristian,

Eye protection and good ventilation are always a good idea when salvaging stuff, just  the fact that you are aware of the potential risks will help you proceed with a healthy respect for possible dangers.

Hackaweek is a fun channel also, I enjoy the bits of history and his thirst for finding cool stuff in old treasures. https://www.youtube.com/c/HackaweekTV/search?query=Salvage

I just ordered a book that I think might be helpful in identifying components. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/1680456873/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

One of these gadgets might come in handy for identifying components and testing them, I picked one up, and it's well worth the $20   AITRIP LCR-TC1 Colorful Display Pocketable Multifunctional Parts Identifier/ Tester

Enjoy!
