Default East Side Michigan Electronic Junkyard

Are there any Electronic Junkyard/Salvage places near Detroit?

See this thread for example...(Similar Thread different State).

Thanks.

Not junkyards but just as good.
Check out the hamfests. The next one is in Monroe.
...don't miss it. I have been going for years. I get some great stuff every time.

This time, I'm teaming up with a guy and plan on selling some stuff so bring cash .
The last time I did this I made $300 and turned around and spent it all on tubes there.

I heard there's one out on ford road somewhere past or near wyoming. I can't remember the name just now. There is also a ham/cb place called K-40 on 14mi just east of Van Dyke. There once was a great surplus electronics junk yard on Gratiot just north of 10mi but it long since went the way of strip malls. I used to spend hours in that joint rumaging through old electronic "junk".

Thanks for the tips. I wish the Gratiot place was still there, I'll check out the K-40 place though.
