We are a consolidator for scrap carbide. This means we buy small amounts and then reship it to a recycler when we have large amounts.
Sort of as an example, think of us as buying a coffee can full at a time and shipping it out in 55 gallon drums.
In our world there are two kinds of carbide; clean and dirty. Clean carbide consists of things such as end mills, reamers, drill bits or whatever that are solid carbide. Dirty carbide is anything with braze alloy on such as saw tips that have been taken off the saw. Clean scrap carbide is worth $.50 a pound more than dirty.
Tungsten carbide powder is at an all-time high which means scrap is high so it might be a good time to sell it.
We will buy any quantity you have down to a handful or even just a few parts. However, if the quantity is really small, such as just two parts, it is probably not worth the shipping cost.
You can ship carbide scrap by USPS flat rate boxes. You can get a lot of scrap in the USPS flat rate boxes and it makes really cheap shipping. If you do play carbide scrap in a flat rate box make sure to tape up the outside. Use a lot of tape and wrap the box really well.
If you don’t have a full box then wadded up paper works pretty well as a filler. Try and avoid using Styrofoam peanuts or similar as the carbide just crushes them into really small parts.
