    a lovely paper weight...

    Just what I wanted, a safe embedded in concrete. You never know what people want to get rid off on craigslist...

    I wonder how long they've been trying to get rid of that.

    I'd take that all day if you could change the combination...

    sounds fun to move
    Currently looking for a job in or related to scrap/recycling. Relocation is possible for the right offer.

    I don't know how long they've had it sitting around but I think this was the first day they listed it on CL. I check out the freebie section a couple of times a day so I don't think I would have missed this "interesting" one.

    Someone had fun even getting it to this point

    I wonder how much that thing weighs and what it would take to move it. I can't see anyone removing that for free but you never know.

    why not take a sledge to the concrete, clean it up in lighter pieces, and keep the safe?

    150 pounds a cubic food ... that looks like it measures about 15 cubic feet ... so about 1 ton and change.

    Ive seen things like this before. I could be wrong but its probably "Faux" concrete. A wooden frame with lath and skim coat making it look like a big concrete block. Still probably weighs 150 pounds tho. Interesting piece either way.
