Am I in the wrong job?,well after Tuesdays experience I think I am. I saw the local scrap men collecting and on the back was a steel cabinet about 3X2 foot and 3 foot high, with a half inch steel top. Great I thought just what I need for the garage to weld on. I approached the man and asked would he sell it me. "Give us 60 quid and you can have it", he said. Somewhat shocked at the price he was asking I said, "What for a scrap cabinet that you probably got for nothing. "60 quid take ut or leave it", I said the whole load is not worth £60. Then came the shock, " That load is worth about 250 quid", he says.Not bad considering people give these collectors thing free. I am due to retire at the end of next month after nearly 30 years in the Emergency services. I certainly know what part time job to take up.Anyone else been stung by scrap collectors. In Future they will get nothing from me. Never knew the price of scrap was so high. Dave (future scrap collector) Sherwood.
