Would this be worth grabbing to get me started?

35euro shipping for a bag of components. Forget it

Id say that those handfull of components would be a waste of time anyhow, looking at your pics the corrosion has affected the metal so you would need a lot of the components and sockets etc replaced, its basically beyond economical repair, salute you for trying to repair but you will end up chasing your tail wondering if you have badly soldered a component you have replaced or if its an other component further along that needs replaced etc

Id just bite the bullet and get a new board, probably be cheaper than replacing all that needs replaced anyhow. I have an alltek board you could get a loan of (or buy if you prefer)
Think you are fairly near to me?

Cheers
Ian

I am another voice saying to replace it.
You want to learn on something where a test shows a component is bad and replacing it gives a positive test that you have fixed it. Otherwise, you will be chasing an issue and getting frustrated.
Plus, the money and time you spend may still be wasted as it may be beyond repair.

You will find other parts that will be worth your effort.

I fully trust the judgement of those of here more than my own excitement to learn and if the community says "do yourself a favour... replace it" then that's that.

I'm in Belfast Ian so yeah not far I believe. I'd happily purchase the replacement board from you to get the first section of work underway in bringing the pin to life. Like others have said there's plenty to keep me busy elsewhere outside of the mpu
