I see I'm not eh only one having Monday's everyday of the week....lol

I always break them down completely. The only problem I have the yards here will buy the aluminum, copper, SS and nickel. I haven't found anyone that will buy the Permalloy, well they will buy it for iron.

The magnet trick tends to work most of the time
Look this rusty nail sticks to my key magnet.
Now I put my magical metal between and it sticks to my magnet too. But look no more sticky nail under my magic metal. :D

I'm still trying to make sure I'm on the right page with the rhodium. The tiny squares is what I'm looking for right?

Can rhodium have a gold tint or is it always silver colored? Some of the squares have a slight gold tint to them.

If this is in fact what I'm looking for what's the best way to get them off the drive head?

Thanks for all the help :)

Looks like it's been removed already here. It's a tiny pickup on the heads at the tip.
I'll pull another one apart in a short while and post better pictures than I did before.

Ohh ok I may have pulled the right part then. I will take a picture of the pieces I pulled and post it and see if I have the right thing.

There you go. There's a tiny piece of metal on the very tip end . The pickup (wrong term but you understand eh) Usually a high content rhodium alloy.

Actually it's the same idea as record needles and their diamond chips. Save enough there's some money there; in both cases.
