    Scrapping a piano

    Has anyone ever scrapped a piano? I mean the big heavy thing inside. If so, how much did it bring?

    I think they're usually cast iron, so I'd guess maybe 300 pounds? Here that would be $42.
    If it's an old one with ivory laminated keys you can make more selling the keys.

    i fell for this once, and will never do it again. had to pay to get rid of the wood because it was painted. i put it right up there with scrapping a camper. also you need a team to move a piano.

    Re: Scrapping a piano

    I've never found anyone that has done okay by scrapping a piano. Lots of work, with a small payout.

    I did meet a guy once that said he scrapped a piano that the inside was brass, and not cast iron. He said that it paid $700. I'm not sure if this is true, or just a lie, but it is worth checking out with a magnet. A professional piano buyer and seller told me he has never seen a piano made from brass in his 40 years of experience.

    a neighbor used the top part of an upright for a mantle piece. It was gorgeous.
    dancing in the fire!
