Junk yard treasures

Recommended Posts

Well my scrap pile was starting to get big so I thought I would take in a load before I take my truck off the road for winter...Anyway I get to the place and unload and hop in the truck to go back around to the scale and out of the corner of my eye I see a well known color...When I looked over at it I couldn't belive my eyes...Here sets in the iron pile a rear counter weight with a collar weight on it.I hauled in $14 worth of steel and got the weight... Did I do ok??

Kevin I do not remember the exact prices from e-bay sales a while back, but with that trade you should have taken the scrap yard guy out to a steak dinner. Seems like the collar weight was well over $50 alone. Good deal! Larry

Yes I bought one from ebay a couple years ago.Wasn't quite that much then but I have wanted another one to put on my rear pin on weight but they keep going higher than I will pay...
