    Get you foil helmets and your lab coats on. I need to figure out what I can do with all of these. Something mad scientist oriented preferred.

    Some sort of rail gun

    Flux Capacitor?

    Give me some ideas

    Recycle them.

    Of course that's a pretty long drive... :p But there might be one closer to you.

    Weld them all together, or if you're lazy just put them in a pile. Call it modern art and flog it to some gullible idiot art collector.

    Good call, SilentPanda - I believe in recycling, too.

    I am sure crc could make use of these parts.

    I have a scrap metal place these would go to worst case. These are mostly pre-atx powersupplies. most of them have the big red switch.

    I guess I could weld together a big robot statue

    I would rather figure out something more functional.......sorta
