What to do with 3/4" schedule 40 aluminum pipe? A LOT OF IT
« on: March 13, 2015, 02:46:09 PM »
I have a huge amount of this that we won't need any time soon at work.  I'm thinking I should sell it off to unload the sitting inventory, and to make some money off of it if possible.  I just can't quite figure out what's the best way to move it.  Any suggestions?

Craigslist?

You might also be able to find a "material trader" site for your area.  Our state has one run by the gooberment.

Learn TIG welding, buy a pipe bender and make offroad roofracks? :P

Scrap aluminum is worth around 75 cents/lb.  Just find a recycler in your area.

:( kills me to see perfectly useable raw materials go to the scrap yard. Especially if they do not resell to the public.  It was probably worth 10x that price new...

 

Wow, a phone plan for fifteen bucks!
