    Decent haul the other day

    Got a call from one of my regular customers that usually has scrap metal. He has access to a large quantity of phones, so I said "of course" I'd take them. Probably about 150 phones, some walkie talkies, and some intercom stuff. Also a couple of Sanyo cameras of some sort. Decent amount of work to do now.

    I still have boxes of similar phones to take apart. They became low priority because the reward hardly seems worth the effort compared to PCs for me.

    Don't forget to get the lead out of the handsets and the phone bases themselves. It seems to be a soft lead.
    Copper, brass, and Leather. 3 of my favorite things.

    Finally got around to looking at them boxes from the other day. Only 96 phones since they mixed 55 intercom units with them. 12 walkie talkies, 3 of those "war of the worlds" eyeball cameras, a scale, and 20 decent boards. Not everything I expected, but a decent couple of days work.
