This is not my disassembly, but it is some disassembly more common to "my world".

Obviously a RD. Looks like a mountain model to me. Older Shimano MTB RD. I have no idea what exact model. I could be completely wrong too.

I wouldn't say dead giveaway. White balance can be a tricky thing.

I just happen to have a couple of spare 600 RDs that I bought at a bike swap for $5 each.
They work great for all kinds of drivetrains.

This is such a good idea...I usually can't even remember to spread parts out in the order/orientation of disassembly. (If I do remember, I'm guaranteed to knock them over somehow....)

I use an ice tray that I've numbered with a sharpie, then I make notations on what's in each spot on a piece of paper. Maybe overly anal-retentive for bike stuff, but a necessity when doing car stuff that fills up three or more trays.

The only pictures I can think of along these lines are from when I took apart an adjustable stem so I could modify it...



...to be much more adjustable.



(It's for a folding bike, so that the bars will fold up close to the stem-post.)

And you can take bets on which opening will have the left-over screw in it!

We all know good mechanics have parts leftover when they're done; I have become a much worse mechanic since making a note of where each bolt and screw came from.

Keeping all the little parts in an uncovered bin such as an ice tray, I do sometimes live in fear of knocking the whole thing over onto the shop floor though.

That's a great idea!

I used to be a lot more organized when I had adequate space - a garage with a work surface is a big help....Nowadays I do it in my building's courtyard or the entryway to our apartment - both of which are less than ideal, obviously!

Yeah I have one of those plastic component trays that has 30 or so compartments. Whenever I take anything apart I use it to hold parts with labels.. i also take close-up, high res pictures of anything I take apart, BEFORE I take it apart. Hah...
