    What do you love about this Forum?

    I love the diversity on here, I just got to use grinder for the first time, there are others have just started recycling, and yet there are others that have giant companies. I guess what I'm trying to say is this forum has it all, even a joke of the day. Now I'm wondering what do you like about this forum? oops wrong place. sorry.

    Me too and when I first got on here I was trying to process computer scrap to get gold, This forum got me to stop, thinging if all these guys that have been doing scrapping for years say it's dangerous I'll let Ewated do it instead.

    Agreed, the diversity of the forum draws me back. It does not matter the thread, I can learn about metal, recycling, scrapping, lifestyles, personal goals, abilities, techniques, limitations, opportunities, etc. You get the message. Now to go one step further, the thing this forum lacks is response to support tickets. I have one from early Feb. and another at least two weeks old that have not been responded to: hint to moderator.
    The first 50 years are for learning, the next 50 are for living.

    We still have parrothead as a moderator and there's the Admin but I'm sure they would welcome the help.

    I nominate Miked and Sirscrapalot.

    The tips and tricks to brake down p.i.t.a. items and the the story's of personal experiences in the "scrap life"
    Like was said about the diversity of the forum, we are all from different parts of the country, and parts of the world. We all deal in different materials. Me being 25 miles south of Chicago deal with a lot of Curb Co and residental pick ups. We have from scrap yard owners to the Ewaste gu-ru's, The guys with mid sized pickups with the wood/futon sides on there trucks to the guys with the big rigs and heavy equipment. And the one thing that brings us all together is "Unwanted Junk"

    This! As a new member of the forum, I love it because all the past threads are a treasure trove of information. If I have a question about something, It's usually been answered in a previous thread, and all I have to do is search for it. Thanks to everyone!
