    no chit Frank! that's pretty cool man. Lots of ways to make money in the world, just need some motivation and willingness to give things a shot no matter how odd the businss might be. do you have regular companies that call you and say we got a piece of equipment, come take it away, or do you gotta drive around urself lookin around for some loot?

    we got a guy over here that's got a full out corporation and does VERY well doing exactly what u do.

    how much is #1 stripped bringing now? I've got a couple hundred pounds hidden in the woods behind my house that needs the casing cut off, waiting for the right price.

    I'm in the HVAC business, and do the same thing when I get enough old coils. #1 Copper is bringing over $4/lb locally here Tim...from what a few business buddies told me. Coils like you mention I got $1.40 /lb a few months ago.
