    I was working with a friend at school, cleaning out the silver recovery unit. Turns out there was quite a bit of silver for the taking. Just wondering if any of you guys have had luck doing something with it. We tried melting it down, but we couldnt get a stove hot enough. The oxidation did burn away, so it did get a little shiny.

    to clean silver, place in tinfoil lined pan, put large quantities of baking soda and fill with boiling water.
    it'll smell really funny. from the sulphur dioxide tarnish on it.

    that's how you clean your silverware too! whee.

    Depending on how much you have, a coin or metals dealer might buy it. Most dealers will pay spot price minus a small percentage, or in other words $3.50-4.50 per ounce of silver.
