Looking To Get Started Repairing
I'm new around here and I realize this question is going to be a lot different than normal questions in the forums so, I apologize if it isn't the right place to do so. I'm currently a college student and I have a deep interest in electronics, how they work, and fixing things. I'm trying to start getting into repairing my own items and putting myself out to repair peoples' broken electronics or salvage electronics to try and repair/teardown. It'd be all the better if I could make a little money along the way (college does that to you).
My question is if anyone has any tips on how to start such an endeavor, whether that be basic tools that I need, places to look for electronics, how advertise myself, best way to maximize profit/loss margins, etc. Any advice would be helpful. The tools I currently have are as follows: basic tool kit for your larger items with hammer, larger screw bits, ratchet, and the sort, soldering iron set with iron, extra tips, flux, solder, desoldering pump, different scrapers and tools for PCB, magnifying glass with helping hands, good wire cutters, and a good knife for many applications. I plan on getting a set of precision screwdrivers for smaller electronics but don't currently have the funds so that will have to wait. If there are any tools you consider basics/need to have I'll put them on the list to get next.
Thanks again and I hope this question isn't too out of place.
Is this a good question?
