Gold Plated Pins very useful to all
Note that we are not recommending that you use a heat gun to remove gold pins from CPUs.
We only provide that rough estimate above to convince you that it can be wasteful – and unprofitable – to discard older electronics, especially computers and the CPU boards that they contain.
