They were building a Buffalo Wild Wings near my house and installed 54 flat screen TVs. They hung all of them from the ceiling and did not use the bases so I got a bunch of them out of the boxes. Each base had about 2 lbs of aluminum castings in the bottom. On a whim, I looked on ebay
and saw that people were selling these for about $40 each so I put mine up there and in two weeks I had sold $812 worth of them.
Sometimes the money isn't in the metal eh?
I posted that to let you know that you can remove the base and sell it for at least $25 on ebay if it's in decent shape. I also found a flat screen with a busted screen dumped in the trash behind Best Buy and grabbed it thinking I'd fix it. It wasn't worth it but the TV shop I called told me that he'd give me $25 for it for parts. I hope that deal's good after I take the base off, that makes $50 for nothing.
