a microwave is a gold mine

Original poster: "by way of Terry Fritz <twftesla-at-qwest-dot-net>" <RQBauzon-at-aol-dot-com>

there's a wealth of stuff one can find in a microwave. i recently gutted a 
microwave and here's what i found that's useful:
    Item                        Uses
    transformer                          its obvious
    fan motor                             async rotary gap
    diode                                   grounding?
    .74uF LDPE cap no PCB's!    tank capacitor
    risk of electrocution               suicide
