    Quit yer whinin'

    I don't care where ya are your city government has to work better than the one here in New Awlins, lmao. Just totally inept. Two years and the fire stations and police stations still aren't fixed 'cause we can't figure out how to use the 2 mil Fema gave them to get something done. Can't figure out do one at a time, lol. Sales tax is 9 percent, and I have to pay for the priviledge (wow 5 tries and still misspelled) of collecting the taxes and turning them in. It's better than comedy central.

    Actually, I was referring to a "home remedy" of the "herbal" and "smokeable" variety

Its all profit for the city and they have to do very little to get it AND they still jam us for property taxes... sign Err I mean sigh....

    WOW, who is your city run by? I work for our city, we have people ask for things like road salt, we tell them, get a bucket and take some, blacktop, same thing. See a street sign on our scrap pile, take it. Oh I can believe what people throw away, I see it all the time and if I had a barn, you wouldnt be able to walk through it

    Office threw out a small drawer file cabinet the other day, cutting wheel, here I come.

    Also, if anybody gets the chance to get one, the big aluminum control boxes they use at Red Lights make wonderful storage cabinets for smaller tools. They actually have shelves inside and you can lock them. Check with your city, most times you can pick them up for a couple bucks.

    Thanks for the link. I thought I remembered seeing something about it, but I wasn't sure where I saw it or how well it worked out.

    I live in an apartment/commercial area, so (a) I'm looking for a way to contain the flying debris and arc flashing, and (b) there's a lot of metal in the trash -- bed frames, metal furniture, files cabinets, metal shelving, washers, dryers, refrigerators, etc. About once a month, people pile their junk out on the sidewalks for bulky item trash pick up day. But there must be a lot of stainless steel scroungers around here because even an old stainless trough-style urinal disappeared before the trash pickup.

    Wow! Great Idea

    Those casings are quite tough for sheet metal. I see those things (washers and dryers) given away for free around here all the time (non working)! I wonder what other good ideas could be thrown around for those casings??? Cool idea, Jonnymag!
