    My Favorite Tools & Parts:
    I bought a lot of salvage electronics to resell on ebay. I own an electronics repair business but I also like to buy broken stuff to fix and resell. I normally buy a few at a time but recently I've started buying boxes of salvage, broken electronics to try and fix and resell.
    This box of items is mostly video cameras and I don't have a lot of experience fixing those so we'll see how I do. Let me know if you'd like to see an update video to see if I made the profit I thought I could.

    How many hours would it take for you to fix all that? Even if you could double your money by re selling them I don’t think that’s a smart thing to do simply because optimistically speaking it would take you at least 60 hours of work to fix all those, so if your profit was to be 485 bucks that would make it 8 dollars an hour, barely the minimum salary , so little for a professional like you.

    What do you mean when you say that you bought a "lot"
    I'm British and haven't really heard that word in that context before.

    • Gregory May

      I live in UK and people don't say stuff. That is american! Are you a troll?

    • Hubert Ziegler
      Hubert Ziegler 5 months ago

      I would say a Lot has different meanings. A lot of cars in this Lot. (Parking lot) if you send a Lot of money for groceries. Or you buy a bigger amount of items in a Lot. Lot=Group. At an auction house sometimes they put a bunch of smaller items together in a Lot. 😉

    • Penurious Sierra
      Penurious Sierra 6 months ago

      Lot just means a unit (box, canister, crate, shipping container, etc) of things, it's used often in trading and whatnot. Usually businesses and factories track things by lot number.

    • UnsaltedSkies
      UnsaltedSkies 6 months ago +1

      FWIW I'm British and would have understood either 'lot' or 'job lot' though I'm possibly the exception to the rule.

    • TronicsFix
      TronicsFix  11 months ago +1

      I've seen some UK RU-cliprs call them that but don't know why. When I'm looking for "a bunch of broken stuff" to buy I search for "broken lot" or "lot of broken electronics", "wholesale lot", etc. Interesting differences.
