    In newer electronics, chances are you are not going to find valuable IC s, however in the older stuff the chances go up quite a bit. The most common ones I find are worth $1 to $5 each.
    If you find a desoldering iron/chip puller to be too much of a bear, try a soldering pot. I was given one by a local with some bars and have had great success in removing components from boards

    I was also surprised at what I found in some handsets. I thought the better boards would have been in the stations. I even found an impressive board in the handset of a corded phone, though it was one with a number pad built into that handset.
