...is another man's treasure, and today it was MY turn.
Tomorrow a few of the local towns are having a "Large item pickup" day, where you can throw away large items for free. Well, I like those days because I stock up on steel for fabricating. I don't mind "scrounging" as I feel I'm being an environmentalist and reusing what I can before it's recycled, so I'm helping the environment (and my wallet) out.
Usually I do OK, but today I wasn't finding a lot of steel, which was disappointing. I did, however, find a few nice items. I found a 4 head VCR that works, a weed wacker (turns over, so I know I can get it to work), a chainsaw with another for parts, car ramps, floor jacks, 2 small toolboxes full of tools (the guy handed these to me while I was looking, said he didn't need them anymore, and some of them are even Craftsman), numerous 350 rods for making steering box braces (anyone need any?), pneumatic paint sprayer (in original box with instructions), contractors wheelbarrow, brush guard for a truck, new deck for lawnmower, and for the piece de resistance, 2 Hi-Lift jacks. Yep, couldn't believe it myself. One needs a climbing post, but last year I bought a climbing post for $5, couldn't help myself, glad I did. Yep, you never know what you'll find until you look around.
Typical junk pile ready for pickup.
