Finding carbide scrap in your home: Light Bulbs

In these times of economic hardship, many people are looking for ways to make a little extra money to put into their savings. There are plenty of ways to do this, from taking on a part time job to having a garage sale. One way to make a little extra money is by locating carbide scrap around your home and recycling it. There are many ways to find carbide scraps in your house, and recycling it can be very simple.

Around The House

There are plenty of ways to locate tungsten around your house. If you are going for a smaller haul, they can be in burnt out light bulbs as well as ball point pens and certain types of razors. If you are looking to find bigger amounts, they can also be found in drills, anvils, saws and anything in between. Once you have rounded all of these up, you are now ready to take them to be recycled.


There are plenty of recycling areas that excel in taking your carbide and getting it to the right people. You will be reward with a generous amount of money for your time and tools and you will realize just how easy it is to gain financially from carbide scrap.

Most people reading about tungsten carbide scrap probably think they will never find any since they don't work in or near a machine shop. However, everyone has access to tungsten carbide in their home.

Light Bulbs: The filaments from light bulbs are made from tungsten carbide because the metal can withstand the high temperatures. What is great about tungsten is it takes extreme temperatures for it to melt. So, manufacturers of light bulbs take the tungsten filament and house is in a sealed, oxygen-free chamber to prevent combustion.

When you change a burnt out lightbulb and see that part of the glass is darker, you are seeing the results of the evaporation of the tungsten atoms. As the light bulb is heated up, once in awhile a tungsten atom vibrates enough to leave the tungsten filament and collects on the inside of the light bulb glass. Eventually the light bulb burns out.

While the filament is not a huge amount of tungsten scrap, in time it might add up. We are not advocating you take the filaments out of all your light bulbs, at least not until they are no longer usable.

But, if you are interested, the safest way to remove the filament is to:

1. Be sure you have gloves and protective eyewear.

2. Wrap the lightbulb in a cloth or large piece of paper that you can dispose. Be sure it is wrapped securely so glass will not fly everywhere.

3. Gently break the lightbulb while securely wrapped.

4. Using needle nose pliers - never use your fingers - remove the filament.

5. Use a sturdy plastic bag to dispose of the broken glass and the cloth or paper used to contain it.

Then keep the filaments in a safe place until you have enough that you want to try and recycle them.

If you are wondering how much you can get for light filaments, contact a professional or someone in your town that specializes in tungsten carbide scrap recycling.

One last thought: Never do this with a fluorescent bulb!
