how do i separate, recycle, the silver from copper tinned wire and is it cost effective - chemical or smelting ? Answered
I have 25,000 feet of military spec marine grade 26 awg high strand count 3 conductor helix braided shielded in plastic sheathing.
I have no idea how many ounces of silver are involved but can guess at the copper, which is worth much more un-tinned and brite.
some have suggested crushing it to remove the plastic as the 3 conductors are also sheathed in plastic but there may be enough of this for me to tool up to do it all chemically or burning it using the right filtration??
