Anyone who likes to do handicrafts and solder will surely have a considerable collection of prototypes sooner or later. Over the years I've also accumulated a lot. And I would like to know what you do with the prototypes when your project is finished.
Usually it starts with a construction on a hole grid or strip grid board. Then comes the first board, and sometimes it takes two or three revisions for everything to work as it should. This means that more and more of these prototypes accumulate over time, especially if they were projects that were also interesting for others and maybe even larger quantities of them were produced, or PCBs have been made.
In the past, I personally often disposed of the prototypes, before mostly desoldering even more prestigious components. Especially with prototypes that were defective, the parts were transferred to the next attempt. Nevertheless, my box fills up more and more.
I would be interested to know what you do with your prototypes afterwards. For this I opened a small inquiry. I would be very happy if you could participate.
Due to the gigantic participation in this survey (after all, this survey was called well over 2000 times, and exactly 0 (in words: NULL) people have let themselves down to participate in this survey) this survey closed.
The result of this survey can be summed up quite succinctly: It was a waste of effort for you ungrateful packs!
