    For a short little while I was buying them on SMF and locally for $5-$25 per unit. It only lasted a few months since I started getting more broken TV's locally. The nail in the coffin was when I picked up a pallet of TV's locally and found multiple boards were missing. You can't really test a TV with a missing board. I also found that almost every one I was getting had a broken screen so selling locally was completely out of the question. My plan was to pull boards from the broken screen units and hold them for repairing TV's locally, but I ran into the same issue I had with microwave control boards. At one point I had 300 MW boards and none of them were the same! The sheer number of TV's out there makes your chances of having the same board in stock extremely slim.

    I have been toying with the idea of buying them again, but it would be per pound, not per unit. I haven't decided on prices yet, but the current range is $0.04-$0.10/lb. Locally I usually buy them per unit instead of per pound. The ultimate deciding factor on the price is going to be based on what I get paid for the shredded up plastics I am currently sitting on (1,000 pounds). I found a buyer that will buy them, but their minimum is 30k pounds. I'm figuring plastic shreds will pack more weight into a gaylord so it will take less space.

    If I could get even $0.01/lb locally for CRTs I would make a killing. There are literally hundred of them I see for free that I pass on every month because I have no buyers.

    You realize at one cent per pound you would have to move 1000 pounds to get $10

    Yea, but that is better than having to PAY to get rid of dismantled tube TVs. If I could get somewhere to take the tubes and plastic (even for free) after taking the boards, cords, wires, an yokes out..... I'd pick tvs up. But since they are such a hassle to get rid of by me, the couple bucks from the innards arent worth dealing with having to get rid of the outsides.
