    I have a bunch of these. About 150 roughly. They are from garbage disposals. Here’s my question… Are these classified as electric motors or something else? If I weigh the disposal at the current light iron price of about .05 cents a pound its worth 35 cents. The copper wound motor would be 18 cents for a pound and a half at .12 cents a pound at my yard. If this is classified as an electric motor then I assume it’s not worth taking apart? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks…
