    Good luck with that. Just did wheel bearings and a timing belt. Neither was "easy", but then again I'm not a mechanic. A "cheap" mechanic wanted 400.00 for the timing belt that cost me 20.00 and...

    I buy a lot from many different auctions. Most, if not all, will refund your money when you arrive for removal if they are not as described.

    I don't have a problem getting 100.00+ after shipping for a Pentium pro system on ebay. There would have to be a LOT of gold in there to get that much refining.

    I really think it depends on your situation and the reason you want to get rid of it.

    I get those from time to time. I can't bring myself to turn them in as "dirty" so I get the tar gunk off. The easiest way I've found is to use a propane torch to heat up the tar gunk and scrape it...

    I get exactly what you guys are saying. I still think there are other ways to work things out.

    Looks like a tuff spot. While I agree with the majority, you can only pay what you can afford to pay and turn a profit (you are not a charity), I think it depends on your situation.

    As posted above, what this is going to hurt is "alternative" drilling/oil refining. Things like fracking have a higher cost and need oil prices to stay up to be in the black. Another example would...
