This evening at Free Geek Oly, I'm scratching my head wondering what to do about a few parts.
1. Aluminum hard drive shells that have small amounts of steel embedded (eg. odd screws and bolts). Would it be possible to sell this to people who want aluminum, for less than the price per lb of Aluminum?
2. Hard drive shells that have a thin plastic coating over them (I'm pretty sure they're aluminum).
3. Copper. We've been (obviously) demanufacturing hard drives and floppy drives around here, it is possible to get a nice chunk of copper out of them (little green spokes with copper wrapped around each of them). Also, I just noticed a light chemical burn on my fingers, I think after I picked up the copper spokes. Anyone had any experience with that? Any thoughts on what it could have been?
