Metal Monday: Old Computer Equipment

old computers for scrapEver find old computers and think…”Hmmm, this doesn’t look so old?” We have heard so many stories about scrappers finding computers that still work but only need a new harddrive, or small connector to make the computer run again.

Computers may seem like a complicated machine, but with newer technology they have become very easy to use and easy to replace/exchange parts on. You may think that they are too hard for you to work on, but you may be able to watch a few YouTube videos and figure out how to do it yourself when you find computer towers in the scrap.

If you find them in scrap you also may be able to sell them for parts on eBay, and because you would have paid almost nothing (if you didn’t find them for free!) you could make a good profit by having a few pictures of them and labeling them correctly online.

If you really seem lost with computers and how much they are worth you will want to get in touch with a local computer shop that may be able to work with you to buy parts or even take them on consignment until they sell them.

Hope this idea helps you out further while scrapping!
