    A friend and I are high schoolers and enjoy fixing electronics, making our own circuits, and making money. We previously started buying, fixing and reselling broken pro audio equipment. We decided to stop because the market was already flooded with that stuff and so it was hard selling most of the refurbished gear. My question is what other electronic equipment would be worth buying broken or cheap, fixing, and reselling? I'm open to any suggestions even if it would be a challenge.
    Thank you for your time.

    EVERYBODY has some kind of a problem with them.

    Just buy Amazon electrical returns pallet.
    Fix the broken items, keep some and sell the rest.
    Most of it actually works but the packaging is damaged or instructions are missing etc.
    What test equipment do you have?

    Alright I'll check in to those, thanks!
    For testing equipment I just learned to make use of what you have. Screwdrivers tweezers and pliers are some of the common tools. I have a decent multimeter as well as a transistor tester. I NEED a oscilloscope, but I dont want to get a cheapy one and regret it later some I'm keeping my eye out for a used one or something.

    A $20 mini scope could hardly be seen as a bad investment and will more than likely suit your needs.
    At the least, get you some detail until you can afford another.
