    Howdy from Texas

    Just getting started scrapping. Have sold stuff to the recycling place a few times. Just recently bought an old homestead, and there is old rusty stuff laying around. Old submersible pumps, pieces to tractor, rebar, old electrical wiring, aluminum, some galvanized steel water holding tanks that are rusting.
    Have separated small stuff into two boxes so far - one magnetic and other not.
    Have a sheet from a recycling place where they listed 32 different metals (plus batteries, A/C compressors, catalytic converters, christmas lights, etc.) and how much they pay for different metals - #1 copper, #2 copper, brass, etc. For the holding tanks, will see if someone can come make an offer and take away.



    Has anyone ever compiled a complete visual of the different metals for reference and learning purposes, or seen it posted online?
