What’s A Scrapper’s Most Important Tool?

A simple magnet is a scrappers best friend

So, what is a scrapper’s favorite tool?

A magnet!

A magnet can tell you what different types of metals you have and help sort the more expensive metals from the cheaper grades. But did you know that sometimes you can make money selling different magnets?

Scrapping Magnets For Cash

Most magnets you will find will be cheaper and have low scrap value, but certain types are worth real money.

Magnets, like ceramic magnets from speakers, have low scrap value but are great and handy tools to have when you are scrap hunting on the road, so make sure not to throw them out.

How Much Are Scrap Magnets Worth?

Another type of magnet called an alnico magnet, most commonly found in hard drives, is the one you can cash in. While most of these magnets have a steel plate attached to them, they can still be worth money to sell to the right scrap yard.

Until next week, scrap ya later!
