        I'm getting ready to start a project that could use the square stock.

                  Scrap dealers are currently getting about $1.12 per pound for aluminum so if you bought 1,720 pounds for $400, you would be paying about 20ยข on the dollar for its SCRAP price.

                  What kind of a nut sells aluminum SHAPES for 1/5 of their SCRAP METAL value???

                        well guys i didn't get it. while talking to him last night i found that another had called ahead of me and was going to look at it this morning. i left my number and name and told him if by chance the guy flaked i would cross his palm with the cash. well apparently this guy wasn't one of cl's finest flakes.. oh well i see deals all the time on cl like this so i guess better luck next time.

                          Really makes you wonder if the seller didn't grab that aluminum somewhere and run? Sounds a little to good to be true?

                            yeah my thoughts when i read it. way to good to be true i thought. would have been a sweet deal though.

                              There was some alum rounds taken from a shop next to ours one night and the funny thing was there was 4 new Lincoln welders sitting there too. Guess the alum doesn't have sn's and would be easier to sell...Bob
