Default Scrap value in copper weight for Miller industrial welder?

I am trying to determine the worth of a couple old MILLER 350 amp DC welders, in terms of scrapping them. I have not had any success in selling them for over 6 months and with pricing as low as 300.00. They are a huge liability in that I am moving business frm Phoenix, AZ to North Las Vegas, NV.

Any insight will be greatly appreciated. These old war-horses are simply blocking the way for a lot of more valuable and much newer items to be loaded on the trailer.
Thanx, Jim DeWitt

Default Re: Need to find scrap value in copper weight for miller industrial welder

I would say only 15 pounds max 20. and here local number 2 copper is around $2.30 a pound so at most you would only get just less than $50 plus a whole lot of work removing it. They only give you number 2 for copper windings due to the laminate insulation on the windings. I would lower the price to $100 a machine and see what happends. You would still get more money than scrapping them and with out the work. If that don't work you could always go down to $50. Even an old machine is worth $50 to $100
