    I scrapped a 25inch CRT a few days ago, it had Ali ex heatsinks (226gms) and 3 sheet Cu heatsinks and a normal sized degaussing cable. (893gms inc screens coil gun Cu)

    Got NZ$5.60 worth of metal from it (US$ 3.92)

    I have a few others to do too, so I will get exact model # and size and exact metal weights from them, for your amusement...

    That's 5 gallons of gas above. ^, is worth NZ$40 (US$28)
