    Yeah. Me neither.



    Couldn't agree more, although my scrapping is more of a hobby than a business.

    All I'm saying is that, as someone who has actually dealt with what you're looking at there,...

    I help out on a forum for another industry. The rule is similar there. The reasoning goes something like this--There's plenty of places on the net specifically devoted to...

    The last time I asked about it at the yard I go to (which was quite a while ago), they told me that, if they were to buy it as such, the magnetic stainless was worth less than plain old light iron....

    Many years ago, it would've been around 1980, I did a project installing about 600 feet of Transite water main. We were used to working with ductile iron pipe, and cutting it with an abrasive cutoff...

    Public Service Announcement...

    (Cause, it went through my mind, and if you're a scrapper and own a torch, it might be going through your mind too.)

    I was wondering if you could safely view the...

    In the same vein--I get most of what I scrap from my workplaces, which are construction sites. Sometimes I dig stuff up, and sometimes I'll go dumpster diving. At one time I'd go after pretty much...

    Kinda the opposite of what my old man said about contractors.

    If a contractor tells you he lost $20,000 on a job that means he figured to make $60,000 but only made $40,000....

    Just an update for anybody who might be interested--I was back at that site today, and saw the homeowner in the alley, so I asked if they'd ever gotten the smoker back. She said yes, they actually...

    They have a couple of unruly dogs behind the fence, so I can see why it's not back there, but yes, it was sitting right next to where they put out the trash.
  14. CurbCo: This item is NOT available at CurbCo

    I thought this was worth a chuckle.

    It's kinda pixelated. The sign reads, "The smoker wasn't garbage! Please return it!"

    This was in the new development I've been working in. The smoker was...

    Hmmm...After watching it again, you might be right about the projectiles being absent. Interesting.

    I'm no expert on military ordnance, but it looks to me like those are still belted together, which would mean that they're not "fired", but yet-to-be-fired. That would mean that, one, they still have...

    Booch, maybe you should give the copper back to the guy, and have him scrap it, and then give you the money.

    2000 Chevy Lumina.
