    Technically, patch cat 5/6 and long run 5/6 are vastly different recovery rates. Patch are very fine wires that in my tests did about 28% by weight and solid strand long run cables are about double...

    I watched a video once where it pointed to a place and said there is a tiny piece of material in the magnetron that does technically produce alpha particles. Again, if you eat it, might be a danger,...

    The ratio of steel in most cheap printers is so low that they are probably a loss for the yard. Open up a few and it becomes obvious. I will do some of the older or higher end units where they are...

    Here's the thing...granulated copper is **** near impossible to sell in less than a semiload, and even then the few odd lot buyers will hit you, especially if you don't have an assay report. ...

    I would hazard a guess that extruded is one composition of metal, sheet is basically random and different. They are probably buying extruded based on that composition, as far as the mill is...

    The corrosion gives them away as brass. Some contacts may be gold plated. There are some tantalum capacitors it appears. You might be able to get them to midgrade if you get rid of some junk on...

    Somebody could probably engineer a way to untwist it with a bearing, and then a way to straighten it out. Whatever you do, don't waste your time with CAT patch cables. They use a fine stranded wire...

    You really need to know what the mix is. It could be largely junk, a reasonable mix, or good stuff...that is important. This poundage sounds like a lot, but that is an average of 2k pounds a week. ...
