|Dare2BSquare||You guys see the news story of the two guys who broke into a building to steal the copper wiring and the building was full of a different kind of copper? The k-9 unit was training in the building and busted them for commercial burglary.|

thats why i posted here.
the only way i have come up with so far, is where the copper wraps the steel thing on the shaft, the steel is kinda like a "T". take a grinder and grind the tops off the T and then attack it with a pair of needlenose pliers.

copper is at about $3 a lb (i think) right now its easy money if they are stealing it.
i just happen to have a bunch of junk motors laying around that im gonna scrap just trying to get more $$ out or them
all metal is high right now. i took a load monday of just junk i had around the house. i had 1400 lbs of steel, 260 lbs of unclean aluminum (stuff with steel mixed in..lawn mower engines pistons ect..) and 16 lbs of clean aluminum (pop cans, engine front covers..) and i got $125 out of all of it.
