Well, I'm going to be busy for a while. I'm probably going to end up divorced when this is over!

    That's the point, they are not necessarily useless. Some can be simply unbricked (such as done in the WiiHacks Bricked Wii Forums). Physically damaged Wiis can be used for parts and some may require a NAND reflash.

    I usually buy in lots of 10 however, the Wii account is getting high enough to start making these larger orders. I do unbrick most of them successfully, some are quite easy and other's not so easy. Thankfully most of the time it's just a hardware issue (such as BT module) but other times I have to flash Boot2 Bootmii (if possible) with a programmer and this is more time consuming. The low percentage that I can't unbrick I just use for spare parts. Sometimes I do sell the parts as well depending on how many I end up with to avoid clutter in the house.

    BTW: If anyone needs a specific part I probably have what you're looking for. I have tons of face plates, screws, disc drives, cases, bt modules, wi-fi cards, etc.

    That I can't share sorry, as this is a very lucrative business for me and I have a partnership with a certain (unnamed) company that I've been buying from.

    Yes, gen3sf you are exactly right and that's what I'll be doing tonight and this weekend. She's gone all of next week and that's when I'll put a big dent in all these.
