    more telecom board help

    http://i1147.photobucket.com/albums/...7/IMAG0471.jpg I've tried asking buyers, but their inboxes are full. Anyone care to take a shot at this one? Grade/ is it broken down far enough?

    I'm not a buyer, but think it's fairly safe to presume if it's built on/soldered on, it stays on, and if it's bolted, clipped, or pressed into a slot, it comes off

    My inbox isnt full Is it just me or does it look like you took all the gold conectors off that board? Its definitly a back plane board but would need to see other side to give a good estimate of value. Just looking at that side I would say its about low grade since it loks like its alluminim with just a few gold connectors left on it. Maybe $.50 a pound. Now im still a small time buyer and not the best at grading telecom yet but that would be my guess. Im sure one of the biger buyers will correct me if im wrong.

    OK well that changes things. There are all them pretty conectors. This is a back plane board should be in the $3.50 to $4.00 a pound range. Again im still learning the grading so I could be wrong. Im sure dune or ewasted or one of the bigger buyers will chime in.

    This board is out of the same systems I've been breaking down, bear. I was told thesevsystems were old phone systems The consensus of the other boards by my Reg buyer were telecom grade. I myself have never seen anything like this board, then again, I'm not an ewaiste specialist. I have 5 similar systems. They all appear to be late 80's early 90's.
    These particular boards are rather heavy- 2 to 3 lbs. The base appears to be heavy aluminum? I would loose or break even if its grade turned out to be low or mid grade. Is rather hold onto it if that's the case. With all the gold connections on it. I was hoping these were special.

    So glad I saw this thread.. I have about 100 of these i just did a break down of a load and there were husks of units with just these boards inside.. PITA to get to but got em all cleanly. Will make sure to separate them from the rest of my boards...

    This forum always seems to be there when you need it...
