Just really getting started with BoardSort and am probably gonna fire a few questions out pretty quickly. My first question pertains to connector ends and what exactly qualifies as a “connector end”? Do both male AND female ends count or just the male end? Also, does this ONLY pertain to ends that have gold pins in them or do ends with brass, aluminum or tin also count? So confused right now

Hello, I also am new here and was wondering if these ends are something Boardsort buys?I was also wondering about optical drive and hard drive write heads. See attached.

Top. Three of those would be connector ends with the wire cut off.
I don’t believe the smallest one is gold pin

My general suggestion for the disc laser modules is to toss the plastic ones into low peripheral and metal ones into midgrade.

You can do the same with disk arms. There’s some info on breaking this stuff down if you’re after certain things. Try searching for rhodium or laser.
But for the general public scrappers it’s more trouble than it’s worth

Remove the plastic backplate and the hard disk through connector is connector end.
