    If I calculated out what I am making per hour I think it would be less than minimum wage lol. Same as MOST of my scrapping endeavors.... This is more of a hobby for me. I just like taking things...

    I am maybe 50% of the time. If they are larger, over the stove, or particularly old, I do take the panels off to get the transformer, and then throw the rest in shred. However the smaller and newer...

    Not a bad point actually.... Could save it and use it to fluff or round off a pallet quicker than otherwise. Interesting. Also after a bunch of googling I think I found a place, that is 2hrs away,...

    I dont want to let it pile up, but it doesnt make sense to ship at the rate that I accumulate them. Id be sitting on them a while and they would be taking up a chunk of my space before I had enough...

    I think I know what you mean. The tiny, paper thin "wire" that is almost like a film is not acceptable.... Ive seen them in printers for sure.

    It legitimately could be! People used to think chemicals, lead paint, and asbestos were fine, and probably put crazy crap in everything. Better safe than sorry.
