    Mike, I'm pretty sure the only thing you're going to find in these are steel, copper, aluminum/stainless, or brass. That's just my thoughts based on the pictures you uploaded.

    Might want to talk to your local yard about these. They might buy them for copper content.

    Honestly I see a lot of these, best thing we have found is to pull the wire, copper rails and any of the external copper connections. You may want to talk to a local yard about selling them as circuit breakers.
