Just wondering

Hi everyone! Just wondering if anyone on here besides me hauls scrap metal for a little extra money on the side? I do it just for the fun of it. To me it's a blast pulling out and unearthing some of the old amazing stuff that's out there! Here are some pictures of my latest project and it's only about half done!!

Can't really tell from the pics,but it looks like you got a lot of scrap stored already - when do you take some or all of it to the recycler?

I'm more of a scrap metal supplier than a collector.
There are a couple guys nearby that make their living collecting scrap, so I make sure they get the leftovers from whatever project I am doing.

Same here. If I kept stuff there would be no end to it.

Once I cut up an old boat trailer that was rotted through. It was so rusted that I couldn't get the wheels and tires off of the axle. We left it out on the curb for the scrap metal guys and it was gone in less than an hour!

Curious, what does a ton of scrap metal fetch $ for you?

Not casting aspersions...but we can't keep metal farm gates, metal grates, man hole covers or anything metal around here that's not locked down. These methheads will steal the lawn chairs out of yards and the guttering off of churches.

But they wouldn't pick a beer can up off the side of the road to save their lives.

When I come up with a pickup load I carry it on to the scrapyard just to keep someone else from hauling it for me.

But I get enough to pay for a cold beer occasionally.
