So this seems to be a tough question. I have 22 compressors from air conditioners on hand. One yard told me to bring them drained(they already are) and they would give me 12 cents a pound. The other says put the time in and cut them open and I will have a pile of copper. I own a grinder and have plenty of cutting wheels. Is there anyone who has done it? Is my pile worth the time? Should i get more and then cut them up? Any help would be great. Thanks everyone….
Thanks for the advice everyone! I got quite a bit of copper from them so it seems to be worth it to me to take them apart also. Some were aluminum windings. Any value to stripping that off and seperating it too?
