If they’re taking yellow brass as dirty brass it’s time to switch.
CBM#1 is around 50cents. #2 is about 30cents and #3/#4 is at 10-20 cents. Copper shred and heavy recovery are under 5 cents. Anything that low I bring to my steel yard who gives me steel shred for it which is actually higher. Lol.

Thanks for the advice

Random questions:

Do floppy drive boards go as peripheral?

Took apart a set-top DVR. Are those components "normal"...drive considered no different than one from a computer? Midgrades and maybe a peripheral board otherwise?

Floppy 3.5 inch (with pins) and 5.25 inch (with an edge connector finger) go as peripheral.

DVRs: all cable/satellite consumer class DVRs will have a peripheral “main board”. The led display board is USUALLY peripheral as well. Button boards and other small secondary boards are usually midgrade. If
If the power board is separate it’s midgrade as well.

Prosumer and commercial DVRs will usually have a full fledge motherboard. So anything with an original msrp over a few thousand dollars post a photo to get it classed. Some old Sony, original aftermarket systems, etc can have large socket or even dual socket boards.

They all use standard hard drives.
