        #1 & #2 are well over $3.00 here as well.

        I'm getting very close to making a run down to the scrap yard.

              Get it cashed in. We had dirt bags stealing our copper pile two weeks ago during the middle of the day. Wife heard pipes clanging and went out to investigate, chased off two kids loading pipe in trash cans

                  Cashed out today, $300 for 4 water heaters, one bucket of copper and 2.5 buckets of yellow brass.

                  Had some old gas line as well.


                  Got one of the trucks finally open bed so we can use it again, cleaned up the shop as well as well as getting one of my helpers paid.

                    I thought I was properly sorted. But, when you delegate, you get what you get. How hard is it to separate clean from dirty copper, and brass from pot metal???? I bet with a few bananas I could train a chimp to do it.
                    First time I want to the scrapper was in '74. Had a truck load and the price was way out of line due to political unrest in Chile. The $500 I got then had more buying power than the $3100 I got yesterday has.

                      Mom my arse. It's mine, mine, mine (and my brothers). This is one area where the old expression of "what's her's is her's and mine is ours" doesn't apply.

                          Hold your horses. I'll be making pesto in a few weeks... after the bottles age a few days in the freezer, I'll take yours out and bring it to breakfast.
                          Besides, after my accupuncturist gets done with my wallet, I'll be washin' dishes. You're just going to have to get in line. Of course, plan B would be to sweet talk Dominic into buying. What say you, mon ami?
