    You're starting to walk a fine line, but continue sometimes nice to give a person enough rope to hang their own selves. 😉

    You will probably get in trouble for calling anyone fat also! 😉

    I know a guy goes around with a big cage built on his truck and collects fridges, stoves, etc., of people wanting to get rid of it. Claims he makes roughly 500.00 a day doing it. Takes it all to the scrap metal yard.

    Now that we have a lot of here. People use their stuff until it disintegrates into garbage, so very little need for garage sales.

    You're on a different page. I am talking about on this site! 😉

    Call someone fat here and you may have a big problem, no pun intended. 😉

    I come from a poor part of the country also, I know just what you mean. I worked hard to get out of it!

    "... 500.00 a day doing it..."

    Must be on the metric system? On a good day I can get $150 USD.

    Sometimes it is not the metal but other things you find. Lots of cookware and dishes picked up that I hand out to friends, family, and neighbors. Cast iron skillets that are perfectly useable with a little clean-up.

    Since I live near a University town, I often see people throwing away things because Mom and Dad paid for it and the kids don't care.

    Best one day haul was some textbooks people were going to throw away. I put up a sign that I would recycle them. For about 2 hours work, I made $320 USD.

    Hey,
    I believe what you say. I don't know what reason he would have to lie to me about it. He is on the go every day from about 5:00a.m. until about 6:00-7:00 p.m. every day 6 days a week. Sometime nights he works later. He is averaging about 14-16 hr. days for 6 days a week.

    Just get a new bucket trev33.

    You don't seem to be accomplishing what you set out to do with this one! 😉

    EDIT: I'd tell you what to do with the old very rusty bucket, but then the post would most likely get removed by a Moderator for good reason! 😉

    miles and miles of satin brown

    "...I believe what you say. I don't know what reason he would have to lie to me about it.."

    Yes, there are folks who work a lot harder than me and they deserve all that they get. In big time scraping it is important to have contacts at the industrial level to get a consistent volume that can be picked up and converted to cash quickly. As a small time guy, beer money and taking the wife out to eat is reward enough.

    Edit: I never thought we would be discussing scraping at RHP. 😛

    Throw it away? Paint over the rust? Sand it down and then paint over it? Put some glue and feathers on it? Ideas please.
    it would be a lot easier if it was rusty's bucket
