This bit set is awesome. I bought mine in 2013 and it is still in good condition. I think it might be a good addition to your set of tools. https://www.amazon.com/Titan-Tools-16148-148-Piece-Master/dp/B0023QTESS/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=Titan+Tools+16148+148-Piece+Master+Bit+Set&qid=1562748591&s=hi&sr=1-3 I wish I had an affiliate link, but I dont.

Thanks For Watching, It was a fun strip out & you can see why it cost so much, Just think making a prototype & tearing it down to make each part in this design, You are paying for the technology mostly

I would Double Check on those 3 transformers....Make a deep cut of about 2 inches ..I wouldn't be surprised if its Platinum ..Have some of the parts you suspect are Silver plated Copper and a chunk of that transformer to an Essay Office to really see what there percentage contents are...Many jewelers buy rings and gold you can sell those to them. Nice Hunting my Friend !!!

Mostly silver plating are small pieces only what makes contact to something else and you wil see the diffrence silver plating is not shiny like copper/ tin plated good scrapout
Harry Verboom (4 months ago)
@Canadian Treasure Hunter i will e mail some pictures of silverplated stuff so you can see the colour the wire is plated otherwise it would bend very easy all plating in electronics are 8 carat gold is expensive so the factories never make 24 carat plating keep that in mind ill explain in the mail
Canadian Treasure Hunter (4 months ago)
Thanks for Watching, I don't know as all the plating looks the same + silver is only 50 cents a gram here & do you think the wires are gold? The gold plated boards are also very heavy might have very good plating?
