    INCONEL? what is it? price per lb?

    I got a call from an old woman who is a widow of an engineer who wanted me to clean out her husbands workshop. He left behind all sorts of tools, scrap iron/steel a little copper, some aluminum and a 50 gallon drum full of turnings which she claims is inconel that her husband used to collect at work and bring home. I was wondering if it is worth scrapping in its own category or just mix it in with iron/steel? All advice is much appreciated.

    I'd call the yard.
    There's nothing more fun and more effective than hitting something repeatedly with a sledgehammer

    I was curious so a quick google search says that it is an industrial alloy. Not sure what to tell you to do with it though. Probably throw it in with the light irons, though you may want to just ask your scrap yard.

    Wow nice link. At those prices you can afford to ship it to a recycler. if you can get 70 pounds in a $15 large flat rate box it could be the deal of the year.
