    Not as well as I thought it would. I ended up with $31.79 in #2 copper and $3.15 in metal from the transformers and it took me about 4 hours to complete.

    My hands don't work as well as they used to and working with transformers is hard on them. I refuse to sell them for 4 cents a pound though and they were getting in the way.



    To make up for the whopping $34.94 I made from the transformers, I spent the rest of the day scrapping things that had some nice circuit boards in them.

    By the end of the day I was well pleased with the results.

    I found a base unit for the Engenius phones I scrap and wanted to post some pics. It's got a nice board but there are a few metal screens and 1 transformer I remove.

    EDW-48-2 Console


    This is an old console from an NEC phone system. Not much of a board unless you like led's. There's 108 of them on the other side.

    ShoreTel 230 and Mitel 480 IP phones


    I picked up a a small load of desktops this week and 5 of them were i5's. Woo Hoo! There was also 3 boxes of assorted cables and a few bad IP phones. I wanted to show the difference in the older Shoretel phones and the newer ShoreTel/Mitel phones. Mitel bought ShoreTel at some point hence the Mitel logo. The 230 phone has much nicer boards with a lot of of gold plating while the 480 phone has 1 decent board, 1 low grade and a useless piece of mylar. New technology is getting much smaller and less valuable. Thank goodness there's still a lot of the old stuff out there.

    I was taking apart a TV the other day and pulled out this impressive little board.

    I picked this defective recording device the other day. I cut the cord and was about to throw it away but decided to check out what was inside. Turns out they have a nice little board inside. Lots of gold plating.

    The way you lay out your pictures with the components in reference to their location in the case is greatly appreciated. It gives a unique look to your thread and for those of us with little ewaste experience a great reference point. Keep them coming.
    As a scrapper I hope to return more to society than I use.
