    Re: computer scrap fingers

    you talking about the gold ends on the cards? I don't think your going to get much if anything on ebay by time you pay ebays percent. I just take the whole card into the scrap center with the towers for the weight.

    Re: computer scrap fingers

    If you have about 1lb of them, they sell for $40+ on ebay, look up gold fingers under the computer section, or gold scrap. You can cut them off with a pair of tin snips, or a band saw but it makes dust.

    Re: computer scrap fingers

    Always cut the gold fingers off the cards. Our local scrap yard will still pay pretty good money for the cards with the fingers removed. And yes, they sell like hell on e-bay. Why? Because they are the easiest thing to refine and recover the scrap gold. most people start with fingers. And $40.00 a pound is small potatoes. Make sure when you trim the fingers you stay as close to the gold as you can. Close trimmed fingers will fetch upwards to a hundred dollars a pound. I have well over 50 pounds of fingers that I have been saving for a few years now. Someday when I retire I'm gonna learn how to refine them myself!

    Re: computer scrap fingers

    If you have a local yard that will buy your electronic scrap, computers are a great way to earn a little extra cash. Everything in a computer is recyclable. And it's a clean type of scrap so you can take them apart in the house if you wish. You can get computers for free just about anywhere anymore! One thing before you start scrapping computers, make sure you have an outlet for the CRT monitors. It can get pretty pricy to dispose of them properly. We always charge $5.00 more than the disposal fee to recycle monitors. They are a pain.

    Re: computer scrap fingers

    We have a place that recycles electronics but they charge to take them. Pretty much everything with a computer the scrap yard will take except keyboards and monitors. I know I had 40 computer towers and more hard drives than that that I got from a guy I took the hard drives apart for the aluminum and did pretty good on them but sure wish i would have known about the fingers I had a huge amount of cards for those towers. Makes me want to cry now how I just tossed them in the scrap pile with the towers. To bad not friends with that dude anymore I could get more PC stuff.

    Re: computer scrap fingers

    after you cut the fingers off, is there any scrap value for the fingerless card?

    Re: computer scrap fingers

    Pull out one of the cards the video or hd controler and look at the gold color at the bottom where it fits in the slot on the motherboard

    Re: computer scrap fingers

    The finger edges are the gold plated edges that plug your card into the socket on the motherboard. Just google gold finger edge photo and you'll see what they are.

    Yes, most yards will still buy the boards with the fingers removed. As almost everybody removes them nowadays, it's almost the norm.
