    Beryllium Copper Tools . And Mercury

    Does anyone know where to scrap these?
    Berylco, Ampco, are common names for these non-sparking tools.
    These are expensive when bought new.

    No, but you may want to see if there is a market for them above scrap value. If they are an expensive tool, there may be a demand for them even when broken for those that repair tools.

    beryllium, you might want to post to the Introduction and Scrap Buyers and Sellers sections. I'd say that would get you more results.
    People may laugh at me, but that's ok. I laugh all the way to the bank.

    I keep reading that Berylium copper is poisonous. Not sure if that is handling it (I hope not) or breathing dust from working with it.

    I have a small stash of it, anybody have a clue what this stuff is worth?

    Are your tools dykes for working on plastic injection molds? I would try to sell them on ebay as I know from when I worked in injection molding that many of the mold techs have to buy their own tools and they are expensive.
