    Aluminum Prices Suck!

    I had to get rid of some aluminum as not enough space. Clean Cast $.40, Clean Extruded $.55, Clean Sheet $.49 these prices have the bonus + $.10 pricing so the price would have been even worse...

    I'm so into scrapping.. When my Steel Toe Boots Wear out, I cut the Steel out of them and recycle the Toe!

    Heat sinks Thurs. afternoon brought $.53 at my non-ferrous guy, cans $.50. They've certainly been worse than that the last couple of years. Hobo- fill that space you vacated with the aluminum with #2 copper...
