    Before I started castrating the males just ended up as suckling roasters. The worst part is the Sow. She just about jumped the hag panel a few times hearing her babies squealing.

    Super hard to be a big fan of this forum lately. Not sure what the deal is but I figured I would give out an email here in case this thing goes belly up. Buyers sellers friends etc feel free to email text call me so we can connect and swap info.

    I'll be around as long as the forum is. But relying on private messages here is kinda ridiculous seeing as how we never know when the site will work.

    I share your frustration, even when the site is accessible certain parts remain broken.

    You can post on both facebook and twatter, I do not want information posted on this forum showing up on either of those forums.

    The forum host provides back up services for each account no need other than monetary gain to use twatter and facebook.

    Scrap Metal Forum Rules and Guidelines - OVERALL

    Scrap Metal Forum RULES - Please Read

    This is the official thread for forum rules.
    This is an open and public forum. We don't manually approve or deny anybody's registration here, neither do we manually approve or deny the threads and posts people publish so please understand prior to participating in this forum, the rules set forth below.

    Although you are free to benefit from the value, knowledge and open discussion this forum has to offer, be advised that we do our best to maintain the quality and integrity of this forum as well as the forum members.

    Please read, understand and abide by the following rules.

    * - ADVERTISING - Advertising to buy or sell scrap is not allowed on the main forum. To advertise as a buyer or seller of anything, you must first upgrade your membership on the forum here, Payments, then post your buy or sell offer in the Scrap Buyers and Sellers section of the forum, here. If you post offers to buy or sell scrap to other members on the main forum, anywhere except the buyers and sellers section, your post/thread will be deleted and might lead to a ban from the forum!

    * - Don't insult, bash or make rude unnecessary posts towards other members for any reason. If you don't have something positive to say, don't say it, you're wasting your time. We frown upon this type of negativity will zero tolerance and will likely result in someone placing a temporary or permanent ban your account and/or place restrictions on your account.

    * - Posting Reviews for SCRAP BUYERS - Reviews should ONLY be posted on the buyer or sellers advertisement thread itself, if they have one on the forum. Forum advertising, and reviews for members who advertise here, are ONLY to be posted in the paid thread which the buyer or seller has posted. Any buyer or seller reviews posted on the main forum will be deleted.

    * - If you get banned, do not create another account. If your ban was temporary and you decide to try and create another account, the ban will become permanent.

    * - Do not post the same thread multiple times. If you posted a thread and didn't get the answers or feedback you wanted, you need to either rephrase your question/thread or have a quick search through the forum since the question was likely already answered. Posting the same thread multiple times will just result in it being deleted and you will just be wasting the time of yourself and forum admins.

    * - The services section. You must either purchase a SCRAP ROOM MEMBERSHIP (which comes with the ability to post one advertisement), or a Scrap Metal Services subscription which will let you advertise your services, but does not include access to the Scrap Room. You'll be sent a PM when your ad gets approved.
    You can upgrade your account at
    http://www.scrapmetalforum.com/payments.php

    *. Links - Spam is always a no-no, of course. Links to spammy or completely irrelevant websites will be removed. Affiliate links are not allowed at all. Links to generally inappropriate content will be removed immediately. Posting "competitive links" is not allowed. This includes other recycling forums, or sites or pages that link to other recycling forums, and linking to sites that promote scrap buying and selling platforms is also not allowed (except Ebay).

    * - Please use the 'report post' and 'report message' functions. This is the little exclamation point symbol at the bottom corner of all posts, threads and private messages. Please use this feature as it will automatically notify admins/moderators of the issue so it can be looked into and fixed. Whether it's a hateful comment, spam or any other issue you feel should be reported, use this feature and include a brief message and we'll fix it as soon as we can. If you need to you can also contact us at our help desk via Scrap Metal Forum Support.

    * - Disallowed thread/post topics - Religious discussions, Political discussions (unless it's directly related to metal recycling and IS NOT a debate), bans, Moderated posts/threads, Illegal activities and other unethical or immoral business practices, advertising outside of designated areas, list subject to change.

    * - No trolling. Don't come to the forum without interest in metal recycling and post meaningless nonsense for the purpose of self-entertainment.

    * - No Homepage URLs in your profile or links in your signature until you have at least 20 posts on the forum.

    * - Calling out the admins or the mods on the forum will not be tolerated. If you have an issue, submit a ticket at the support link at the top of the forum or by visiting Scrap Metal Forum Support.

    * - Condoning illegal activities in posts/threads on the forum is not allowed. Example, snipping air conditioners rather than evacuating them with proper equipment, illegally dumping and/or burning your 'hazardous waste' to make a quick buck, stealing scrap metal, etc. We will not allow this and if you're caught condoning such activities you'll have a ban placed on your account.

    * - Enjoy the forum.

    Alright alright...If my thread doesn't stop with the admin bashing I'am going to have to sic the admin on you guys and have them break out the ban hammer! LMAO!!!

    But really though. It's been fun but all I really wanted to do was to get my info out there to anyone who might want it or need it while the site is down.



    In other news. I know I spoke prematurely about a new truck once before. So I waited on this one. I pick it up from the local copart auction tomorrow morning.

    Theft recovery so ingnition batteries(**** scrappers) and a radio. Beyond that it's a mystery. I think i got it at a good enough price that even if it needs a decent amount of work i'll still be ok on it.

    F-350 Dually 7.3l Diesel 4x4 200k miles with a stake side flatbed. Doesn't get much better than that for what I wanted.

    So far in only into it for $1800($1390 plus fees)

    The advantage of free advertising, non paid membership in clear violation of the form owners TOS. and a failure of contract to those that paid for this service.

    No one is policing the rouges, forum has become a free for all.

    Yea twatter does link back to SMF https://twitter.com/scrapmetalforum

    Curious what the thieves needed to haul that required a one ton, not a common size to borrow.

    Alright so here is my trucks story so far.

    Paid for it but copart wont move super duty trucks. So $40 for a random tow driver that was already at the place to drop the truck on the side of the road in front of copart. No working on vehicles on site.

    Ok pop in 2 new batteries. No start and has about a half gallon of oil on the ground. Time for a tow. We flag down one that doesn't look busy and have him haul it back to my place.

    Ended up it was missing the Ignition Pressure Control Sensor and was just pouring oil. My friend who found me this truck had one in his tool box and 3 mins later the truck was running.

    It's a good one. Starts FAST, runs and shifts smooth.
