    Yep electric motors between $.05 - $.13 a pound here so depending on the place it may be better to turn them in with the shred...

    Better than the dump!

    Steel piles at the scrapyard I go to most often are the smallest I have seen in years looks like they are moving out as much as they can as prices on steel have been going up

    Hobo, I think I might go to a yard you use or have used. Anyway, it looked to me to be more bare than the last time I was there. I got .45 lb for my aluminum wheels.
