    I think the real problem is e-scrap is still a new industry and there are a lot of unknowns. That’s the main reason I wrote the book. Don’t know if I told you but originally when I started putting everything together it was for my use only. I knew nothing about e-scrap so I figured I’d do some research and make some notes for my personal use.

    Once I started the research I discovered that for a lot of the components (not all) it was almost impossible to find any information anywhere as to what materials they were made of. Almost like it was a trade secret or something. Some of the components in the manual I spent days, even weeks on, just trying to find some information about their composition.

    The harder the info was to come across the more determined I became to finding it. That’s one of the reasons it took two years to put everything together. Writing was easy, the research was a real challenge. if people want to use that info to become better at e-scrapping, then they are welcome to it. If they don’t, that’s not a problem either.

    I’m starting with ICC’s. It seems like ebay is a better market than boardsort. I think I’m starting to look at boardsort as all else failed I’ll send this to boardsort. The main things I’m collecting now are crystals, tantalum caps, ICCS, and MLCCs. I started saving gold pins and fingers I haven’t trimmed any yet but I will once I get 50lbs. My scrap yard takes to boards so I’m set getting rid of the cherry picked items. I still strip the insulated wire, sell mixed computer wire, break down yokes, sell aluminum heat sinks and scrap sheet aluminum and keep the steel til I have a truck load. I get diffrent loads each time it’s crazy like yesterday we got 2 laptops 25 pounds of phone/computer chargers, 4 cameras, and 2 rear projection big screens. As of now it’s just pick up free stuff. My son and I created a side hobby called pinky’s E-Waste Recyling and metal salvage. We get several calls a week. And have routine pickups from electronic repair shops. There are so many components it’s crazy and your right the information is extremely hard to come by. I’d like to find a online forum that’s active in escrap this one isn’t lol. But your right at the end of the day business is business and what others do or don’t do is up to them.

      I have an super old IBM computer from the 80’s. Do you know of anyone who collects super old stuff like that or is it just scrap and if so is it worth scrapping? What about super old cell phones like the brick kind? Also I have some old CB radios that don’t look like they have much gold at all in them.

      >Janet Scott, First, thanks for the kind words and I’m glad you like the manual. I hope you get a lot of use out of it.

      As for the IBM computer from the 80’s, does it still have a CPU in it? If so, take a picture of the processor and post it here, it could be worth a lot of money depending on what it is. Those old CPU’s are hot collectors items if you have the right one.

      Not sure if you know this, but the older computers, especially those from the 80’s have a lot more gold in them than the computers from the 90’s and up. Matter of fact, if you have the time and are interested, open the computer up and take some pictures of the MB and other components inside and post here. if you do that I can give you a better idea of just what you have, what it’s worth and the best place to sell it.

      Thanks again and if there is anything I can do to help just let me know.
