    Some of my auction buys from the weekend.

    I will have some more pictures to add later. I was able to take advantage of my rural location to score pretty big over the weekend. Lots of scrap, and lots of more than scrap value.

    Thanks for posting!! Hard to believe there's more than a year's gap in this thread. I had a battery load this year after my bro gave up the fantasy of making his own lead balls for his muzzle loader out of a bunch of batteries. It was a fun load!!

    Oh...... I love them batteries ! Wish I could score more but I won't pay for them so I get em where I can. When I get 20 or so them I add them to my load of other scrap to make sure I'm making it worth the trip. The last load was a bust with ferrous so the copper and batteries helped
    to make it a decent payout.

    It is hard to believe it's been that long. I haven't been hauling much, because I was running an excavator all summer. It's kinda nice to get back at it.

    You probably got the better deal, especially if you can work the plasma cutter like a ninja!!

    I saw an add for corrugated metal for free, must take all. I have been looking for some to put on the roof of my porch, so I said I would take it. As is always the case where I live, it was over 100 miles to go get it, but I know the people, and my sister has a ranch near there, so I made the trip. As it turns out, this was a building that had been taken down in the early 70s, and purchased by this ranch, and never reassembled. There is another load like this one that I still need to go get.

    A little research tells me that this may be worth a little bit of money, I have already had a couple people say that they will buy some.

    Also, I was able to make connections to purchase a 1972 Chevy K20 pickup for a pretty cheap price.

    No rust at all. It will be fixed up by someone. I have several people that want it, and I haven't advertised it.

    You may live in a pretty empty landscape for people but one thing that aridity does is stuff doesn't rust away like further east with more precip, more humidity, and high use of salt on snow & ice in the winter. Good luck on selling that old pick-up. Looks pretty hot for being 47 years old!
