    This is the only time I remove gold fingers from boards. I don't get them often but some server power boards have them.

    I scrapped a cisco redundant power supply yesterday and these 2 power boards were the only thing inside except for 8 cooling fans. Almost 20 pounds of power boards.

    Do you knock off the Al or just ship as is? Thanks for sharing. 73, Mike

    Hi Mike. I leave everything on.
    There is a small yard close to me that I go to. I'm getting more per pound for the power boards than I would get for the aluminum.

    Very cool. I've backed out of most of my scrap business. Now its mostly cleaning up the left overs. As you can imagine the stuff that is left over doesn't have the highest value so my motivation has waned.

    I'm onto the next stage of life, enjoying past employers paying me to stay away. I do enjoy your posts. 73, Mike
