    Selling Aluminium heat sinks on Ebay

    Since my closest scrap yard is 2 hours away from my house, I have to sell scrap Aluminum on ebay.
    Here's my auction Over 19 lbs Aluminum Scrap Heat Sinks Pieces, Steampunk Art, Smelting, Crafting. | eBay
    let me know what you think and if there is any constructive criticism you may have.

    The bigger ones, like out of stereo console units usually go for good money. I've got a stash of them, including some quite larges ones out of broadcasting equipment, that one day I will get listed. The little ones seem to make you more than scrap, but not tremendously in my experience.

    If one were to win on opening bid. $30 bucks total for 19lbs is ~$1.58/lb
    Since these pay at the yard (at least where I live) .35/lb
    All I can say is that I wish you well on it.
    I'm so into scrapping.. When my Steel Toe Boots Wear out, I cut the Steel out of them and recycle the Toe!

    Shipping may scare away a lot of bidders ... Maybe sort them by type in future auctions ?
    Yes I am very aware it is not cheap to ship anything unless ya' are a large company
