    Anyone have an old solder pot they want to get rid of?

    I'm just a hobbiest, so nothing fancy, just something that works would
    be great. Even better, for a small fee I'll take one of those "LEAD"
    contaminated ones off your hands :)

    If persistence is such a powerful force, why are there so many dead
    flies in my window sill?

    "Hobbyist". It's spelled "hobbyist". Unless you're the hobbiest of the
    hobbies?
    Pet peeve.

    Que one of my favorite albums:

    "This will not do.
    Call the schoolmaster!

    I always said he'd come to no good
    In the end your honor.
    If they'd let me have my way I could
    Have flayed him into shape."

    Yea, at the time, all they listed was new stuff of which I didn't know
    the providence. $150 - 300 for stuff that very well may be imported
    junk, chased me away to look at real tools. After recovering from
    $300 - 500 sticker shock, I wandered over hear and asked my miss
    spelled question...
    Nope, but its on my list now, thanks...

    Hey, I clean 'em up once a year.
    If the little buggers wouldn't hide behind the curtains like that I
    could see them.

  13. Ever heard of your local industrial liquidator and google earth to find
    them, and the telephone to see if they have what you want?
     

  14. Almost as good as the freeway sign leading into Indianapolis...

    Indipolis Blvd

    Not to continue to sound like a dullard, but does anyone actually do
    this still? I just checked my yellowpages for liquidators, or
    industrial liquidators, and found a few auction houses. Mostly estate
    auctions, not much for industrial. One place I know of lists their
    items on an Ebay storefront, I just assumed this was probably the case
    now for most all forms of liquidation and what not...

    Funny part is, I live in a HUGE retirement part of west central
    Florida (Just south of Sun City). I could probably stick a sign out
    by us301 "Solder Pot Watned" and end up filling my garage with 40 year
    old electronics and Ham radio tools and equipment. :)

  16. Try performing the same search in Google Earth.

    Also, some cities have many more Ind Liquidator shops than others. It's
    all relative.
