    Dear MoosetheScrapper I have a problem? People keep asking me why waste my time looking for silver or gold in electronics! When you can get ascess to some valuable metals that are too expensive on the market! I come to find people are just to lazy or not educated! I see numerous amount of gold and silver plated chips get thrown out! Please leave your comment!

    How do you separate your silver from gold after you do your AP to rid yourself of other base metals? Do you have a video of this already?

    Moose, I suspect some of the contacts can have rhodium, which is far more valuable than silver. I haven't tested but I read somewhere that rhodium is used in relay contacts. It is a bright white metal and looks a lot like silver, but the acid bath will not dissolve it. It pays to collect it.

    Something I've learned is some of the copper has silver. The 1960 to 1980 copper is lighter shade. Just have to pay attention.

    At the time when silver nitrate sticks to the copper is used another chemical or is it just the distilled water and the nitric, and how many ml of water and how many ml of nitric to make the right composition?

    Moose, how do you get the silver tabs off of the arms in the breakers. I even have some copper tabs with silver tabs the size of quarters and can't get them off ( kinda like the ones in the part 2 acid bath pic)

    Hey Moose. I'd always been told that contacts were tungsten type metals? Is that true?

    If some contacts are tungsten will the acid dissolve those too?
    Are there metals that the acid won't dissolve (aside from Silver)?

    I'm a small time scrapper refining only what I come across in life and have always left contacts as is and not looked for the silver. I'm devastated!!

    Is it rue that equipment that runs 220 or even 440 requires larger contacts in the switches which should contain larger contacts?

    Erm I have a question. I have seen other videos where nitric acid is used and in those the silver dissolves and they start out with contacts that have already had the copper and other metals removed, (I am assuming it's been achieved via the AP method) only the bare contacts are there. This apparent contradiction needs to be answered properly, oh wait I see what happens, you don't need to introduce a source of copper to create the silver cement which you do after using only nitric acid.

    Hey Moose, Love your videos! Question what do you think of these people selling cell phones and hard drives for scrap? One person had 38 Cell Phones "Palms" for a buy it now price of $39.00 and they did not sell I offered him $20.00 for them and he told me his prices are fair and they sold already. Long story short what do you think of these E Bay prices for cell phones and hard drives, I personally think they are outrageous and think anyone that is paying E Bay prices are buying them to get personnel information off them or think they will make money off of the scrap. I don't see how they will make it off the scrap. What's your take on this subject. Thanks from Don Hard

    nitric acid also disolves the silver… zo you have to refind it with copper pipe, it will cristalize on the copper pipe.
