The Lounge / Scrap Metal/Recyclers!!!
« on: May 26, 2012, 01:56:15 PM »
Just curious what scrap cast iron goes for? We are gutting an apartment complex and we have about 80 cast iron tubs! They are about 300-400 pounds a piece I think.

Ok I was thinking about adding a section on the forum about most frequently asked questions from noobies so we can all answer them and then when nobodies come on the forums most those same questions will be answered and easy to find. So all you that have been around here for awhile post some of the popular questions that get posted a lot and we will pick the best ones

I had the forum moved to a new host/server. Things should be a lot quicker for those of you who were having any difficulties. Please let me know if you have any problems!

I thought it would be fun to change the little phrases under your screen names of your posts. The ones that say newbie, jr. member, hero member etc..

Any ideas?

What's it Worth?? / Here is a good one for yall!!!
« on: February 24, 2011, 07:53:15 PM »
Ok. I don't even know what this thing is and I have been searching online for 20 mins or so forsomething like it and have not found anything! The writing on the top say Tape O'Graph and the at the bottom says Chicago, ILL. You can take those 2 wingnuts off and see the insides(I should have taken a picture) It has some sort of real simple gear system with a slot coming out of the bottom of it. I can't find any branding or date on it(probably cause of all the rust)

Just wondering if any of you all have any idea of what this is??

Stories about Storage Auctions / Your First Unit Won!?
« on: February 16, 2011, 07:32:04 PM »
Lets her everyones story on their very first unit they won! And how you made out.

I'll start:

It was on a Uhaul tour where we went to about 8 different locations in one day. This was my very first day going to a storage auction. I watched most the day waiting to see if one was good for me. The crowd ranged from about 15-25 people all day. We were at the last location for the day about 5:00pm to my surprise only me and 2 others showed up at this location! So I had it in my mind that this may be a good time to pop my cherry. We came across a small closet size locker 5x5. It was maybe 40% full not much stuff but you can tell there wasn't any junk. I could see from the door a pair of skis, several tupperwares, some nicer brand name shoe boxes and other misc items. Well I bid on this unit and won it for $40 bucks.
The unit ended up having a brand new violin, a document safe with a couple of pieces of jewelery in it, the skis, some scuba gear and a few other misc. items. My total profit on this unit was in the $500 range. And I was hooked from there!
