Ding and Dent Production Builds - WRL

It's that time of year when we sell off our production scrap. These board do not work, but they make for great practice, and if you're good with the tools, you might even salvage some serious dough. These boards are a great way to encourage hot-air rework, scoring usable parts, and not having to fret if the rework goes poorly.

The production scrap is divided up into the applicable store front category. It's a surprise! You might get any failed product within that category. This product is for an item from the Wireless Category.

Defects range from incorrect designs, PCB defects, incorrectly assembled boards, bad parts, bad soldering, blemishes, or anything that would make the SparkFun product not able to be sold on our store front.

Units come in single pieces and there in no guarantee as to what you will be receiving, but we can guarantee that you will not receive a blank PCB!

**We cannot accept requests, returns, exchanges, provide documentation, or provide support on any aspect of these boards. **

We hope you can give a second life to some of these parts!

    Nabbed three WiFly shields. Two work, one not so much. Score anyways;; big time. I check ding and dents all the time now. I have been completely satisfied with what i get for the money. Sometimes I win, sometimes I lose. Now I am ahead of the game. Thanks Sparkfun. Keep making mistakes but more of the blemish kind, if you know what i mean.

    Wow, only thirty minutes after I saw the auto notification email (that new stock was available today) and they're sold out!

    when will these come back in stock im new to this and it would b great practice?

    • They come and go. We try to avoid having Ding and Dents, so there is no real way to predict this. For practice, you can try out some of our intro kits for soldering and programming.

    Look closely those Bluetooth modules are worth 50$ and you can get them at a probability of $12... And as they are readymade they must be working...

    Don't you mean, "We cannot accept requests,"?
