    Thumbs up Catalytic converters GAS,DPF, DOC - are you getting the most for your converters

    I want to share with everyone who maybe interested.



    catalytic converters are valuable as everyone is coming to know, sometimes its the most valuable part of a vehicle in scrap. how does anyone know exactly whats worth what?

    CCON Metals has a solution and its called Ccon Revolution. with our invitation only web app, we can teach you how to be a successful catalytic converter core buyer in a very short time, its forever free to use. it comes with a host of features, but the crowd favorite is the converter database which automatically updates as we put new pricing out.

    we are based out of Abbotsford B.C but do business with many clients all across north america.

    we have the ability to cover the insurance of your material while in transit, and we lock in your units value once its been shipped, so you never lose if the price drops while your material is on the move.

    if this sounds interesting to you, feel free to reply to this message, send me a DM, contact me at Jonathan@ccon.ca

    My catalytic converter cut off rig, 4500 watt pure sine inverter, heavy duty Milwaukee sawsall.

    I've found that the fine tooth 24 tpi blades work best for cutting thin wall exhaust pipe, the teeth don't rip off.

    i disfigured the inverter making it less attractive to becoming a theft victim.

    When I opened the C-con Revolution app, noticed i have 3 credits. What are the credits used for and how much would they cost to replace once used up.

    Does not require an answer as I'll not be using the app, nor will I be selling my cats to C-con.

    The price quotes given were blind neither buyer was aware of the others price quote.

    APA won this hands down, also he was very prompt to answer my call at 11:00 pm central time last night which made it very late on his eastern time. Very polite and to the point.

    i'm quiet confident APA simply typed in 7889 and got the value of a flow 25178896 which comes out to 255.46usd, its a simple mistake when you only use the last 4 digits to search...

    Yesterday morning i clicked onto the FAQ radio button in the C-con revolution app to find out whet the heck those 3 credits were intended for.

    Credits are what Casino's give to rich clients, give then give them a few free drinks to loosen the strings on the wallet, the guy is lucky to leave wearing his shirt.

    Anyhow I was greeted wit this warning and decided your app wasn't ready for public consumption.

    Figured if the app was this flaky it could not be trusted to spew out the correct prices.

    APA answers the phone day or night, just like my father who was always happy to greet his wayward son knocking at the door at 3:00 am looking for a bed and a meal.

    Completely off topic Alloy but i wanted to give you a heads up on the Sawzall when the opportunity presented.

    Just scrapped mine out last week and figured out why it failed. If you peel back the robber boot on the front on the front you'll see that there are four bolts that attach the front part to the grey mid-section.

    The bolts failed ! They're made of the same material as a sheetrock screw with a very coarse thread. It's a very brittle material. Three of the four bolts had snapped off down inside the grey part.

    Check it out if you get the chance. Catch it early ... and your saw might last for years.

    It's not off topic this is the saw that i use to remove cats with, thanks for the heads up.

    I love this heavy brute, I'm using 24 tpi blades and run the saw on the number 2 setting so as not to burn up the blades.

    Cut off another three units this afternoon, one was a real bear. Cut a few hoses out of the way then used a scissor jack found laying near the car, wedged the jack in between the engine and firewall to force that V6 forward enough to make room to access the unit from above.

    I called APA near midnight he was in bed at the time, I gave him the number then without a break in the flow of our conversation gave me the price quote. All from memory.

    C-con is well within market limits the majority of the buys,

    C-con and one outfit from Calgary gave identical quotes on this Cummings number 2196AAP which was actually much better than APA, all I can say is let your fingers do the walking before you decide to sell.

    Cats with missing numbers, I'm finding way to many and the price on these is horrible. Ya all heard using forensic techniques a serial number can be recovered.

    If you know abouts where the number is supposed to be, polish the area with 600 grit sand paper, the better the polish is will reveal the number on the next step.

    A copper sulphate solution is brushed over the polished area.

    Another method which I have not yet tried would to to take a high resolution image then invert to colours using a photo editor such as photoshop or in my case the open source Gimp editor.

    C-con, Calgary and APA are quote very competitive numbers, would not hesitate doing business with any of them, Calgary is not too far fro me. So for me it's going to be a day trip to sell some goods and visit some friends whom I have not seen fro the past five years.

    Also while in Calgary might get lucky and find a buyer for my concentrates, that assay below looks very good, I've managed to clean up some of the trash metals.

    I woke up in the middle of the night to answer this guy’s price quotes and didn’t complain at all. I tried to help a person and be compassionate. Today I quoted 1 (one) single converter less than two big and tough “processors”. Now I am being nailed to the cross.

    Shows you how people will turn on you instantly.
