mid-grade assuming they are green on both sides.

probably not worth sending in, alot of guys strip the large components off and bring them to a local scrap yard since postage eats most of the profits.

sound advice ^
yes copper
and extruded aluminum are both worth more than midgrade-lowgrade boards must of the time in that way..

if you go that way you can also strip of the ics to sell here per lb...

Thanks! Yes they are green on both sides. Pulling the copper, IC's, and aluminum then throwing the board in the "midgrade" gaylord. I come across something new every piece I open up...granted I'm new at this so it doesn't take much.

There’s a lot of heavy copper breakage on that. My suggestion is pull the aluminium heat sink. Sell the heatsink for AL #1 (most heat sinks even when painted will get #1 due to the clean Al source), and the whole board as #2 CBM to a local yard.

yeah what mls26cwru and lost [in a confusing way said ] i need a lostinlodos to evil thesaurus sometimes ..


anyway locally is the way to go with that i would strip all that sell as clean copper since its 2.44-2.65 lb for me as well as the heatsink ,and those 2 capacitor in dirty aluminium (check your scarp yard 1st) the wires .the things holding the heatsink on will be brass or copper sometimes steel ect ect
