I found a couple of small cans of R12 in my shop and am trying to figure out of I can sell them. If I interpret the federal regs properly I can sell them to a certified ac tech. Does anyone have any experience and words of wisdom on this?

just think of the money you could make selling black market refrigerant. . .:d

Yep - only a certified AC tech can purchase them. However, they won't pay a lot because the small cans are a pain compared to the commercial tanks.

However, getting them into the hands of a tech is the right thing to do.

Yeah, I'd rather them go to a proper home than get accidentally get thrown out or eventually rust out and blow a home in the atmosphere the size of Australia.

Black market refrigerant? Nah, there's other things to market. More fun, too.
