    hello fellow scrappers

    From ludington mi , I'm a electrician by trade so copper is what I'm about well I guess aluminum to. Just started scrapping seriously in the last couple of weeks, man its funand it pays , I made 90 bucks in the last 2 weeks and that's just clearing out the basement and saving some wire from a couple electrical panels I have cut in. Well anyways hello.

    Welcome to forum. I pulle the panels apart there is a good bit of copper in them. At least the few I have found. The load bars or whatever they are called in them where the breakers sit were nice heavy copper slabs.

    I get them from an electrical contractor, they can be a pita but when you get the copper out it's worth a little bit of work.

    Welcome! I assume you have kids hahaha!
















    Wait, wait... My evil plan isn't evil enough for you to foil, is that it? Really? I've just insulted the macaroni and cheese recipe of a whale. What part of that is not evil? Perry the platypus, you get back here and thwart me this instant!

    Welcome buddy! Looks like you have more than just scrapping in common with a few of us here! I'm more of a fan of Perry, but what the heck!
