My husband and I started doing some part time scrapping this past year. He works in construction and brings home a bit of scrap bare brite and aluminum here and there. We usually have enough in 2-3 weeks of scrapping to make it worthwhile to cash in.
I just noticed that one of the scrap yards in our state takes carbide and posts a picture of drill bits and says they're paying $3.50 per pound (today's price). It seems like it might be worth it to have my husband pick up the used bits around the job if there's a way to tell if they are carbide vs some other material. Has anybody ever scrapped drill bits? Are most of them made of pure carbide?
Thanks for the help
