    Subscribed! But honestly I have never got any telecom equipment but I enjoy the thread. For some reason I like looking at the phones lol.Thank you for the pics. I feel you 100% on the ebay thing. I work a day job that sometimes is sun up to sun down and its 17 miles to the nearest post office and 35 miles to the closest fed ex/ups store. We are so unpopulated that all services are a maybe, for example next day delivery maybe, home pick up maybe. It makes ebay a pain. It's too bad all those places that sell your stuff on ebay for you are not around anymore.

    Do you still have the rectifiers? If you get one that works I'd be interested in it, be nice to finally have an reliable battery bank charger.

    I do have them but they came out of a leaking trailer and were thrown into a construction dumpster where I retrieved them. Since then they have been outside in the rain trying to get the smell from the mouse pee and turds out of them. They are all bent up and broken with wires that have been chewed on and good for nothing but scrapping.

    Lol, im jealous. But I love getting large loads like that. I hope you didn't pay for any of that, that would make me super jealous and proud of you that you didn't pay. I dont like to pay if I have to spend my time away from my family to break items like these down.

    I'm blessed that I've never had to pay for any scrap. I have many contacts and they call me when they need me to pick up something. Most of the time I stop by on the way home from work to pick it up and I sometimes I'll arange a pickup when I'm in their area. I got a call Friday to pick up 4 batteries from the main guy that's over the IT dept and takes care of the phone system also. I'm going to talk to him about any old computers or anything else he might want hauled off.

    That's great man, I do the same thing. I do purchase motherboards if they are already processed, but thats it. Keep up the good work. Nobody else will, considering where you had to dig the electronics out of.

    I posted a pic of some rectifiers a few weeks ago but have not been able to do anything with them until now. I went out this morning and took one apart. Took me 2 hours but could do it in half the time since I've figured out the best way and in what order to remove each item inside. After weighing the #1 copper, #2 copper, #3 insulated, aluminum, and metal (shred), current prices at my yard amounts to $27.00 each for 1 hour of work. Or I can sell them as is for .10 lb for a total of $11.00 each. I like the $27.00 more.

    I didn't realize how long it had been since I posted any pics. I was in the area of one of my regular contacts today and gave him a call. He told me stop by because he had some scrap for me. I ended up with 11 PC's, 2 battery backups, 8 keyboards, 1 printer, 1 monitor and 4 mice. I'm a happy camper.

    Yeah, that's my baby. 66 Chevy that I bought back in 1984. The pic above was taken in 1990. I've hauled many dirtbikes to the races every weekend plus loads of wood, rock and mulch. I'm in the process of getting it running again but don't have a lot of money to put into it right now. It's been a great truck.

    Just got through processing 55 more telecom boards. I ended up with about 250 pounds of boards and my local buyer is giving $3.10 a pound right now.

    Have you looked into selling to one of the buyers on the forum? If not I suggest you send some photos so they can have the opportunity to make offers. Mike.

    I've spent most of the day getting some of my boards sorted. I'm finding things I forget I had like 7 pounds of eproms. I've still got a ways to go but I'm running out of room and I still have more scrap coming in all the time.

    My latest acquisition. Nortel Meridian 81C




    I need to get the part numbers off of the cards because I found someone local who is very interested.

    I just wanted to post a few pics of some cards I pulled out of a big Nortel Option 81C PBX system.


    This is the main CPU with a black fiber processor.


    It also had 2 more CPU’s. Each with 1 ceramic processor and 3 sticks of gold plated memory.



    The system also had 4 nice backplanes that were 14"x22". Each weighed 5lbs.


    Ended up with 40 pounds of high grade telecom boards, 20 pounds of backplanes and 206 pounds of cast aluminum.

    The next 2 pics are boards that came out of two 48 port data switches.

    My BIL gave me a water damaged Gateway Profile 3 last week. Scrapped it this morning and ended up with a large socket MB, a green fiber CPU, a 60 Gig HD, 2 sticks of gold finger Ram and the other 2 boards came off of the monitor. Now if I only had 500 more.
