Very nice dial indicator. Big enough for old eyes! I much prefer the white over the black that seems common.

had fun wandering round with a friend, saw these but couldn't fit one in the back of the car

and came back with 100lb of scrap, including a bunch of galvanised tin to make my wife's Christmas present with (a metal chicken), couple of Fox shocks and some nice alu, steel and stainless

Rohm small body extended point MT3 live center. I have a larger Shar's extended point, the Rohm is much smaller in diameter and the bearings are like smooth butter vs. Shar's which were stiff and gritty. Amazon about 40% off of list, couldn't resist, should work well for smaller diameter work.

Did they charge you, or did they pay you? I live in such a densely populated area and the scrappers' overhead is so high that I need to sell them my scrap, or else they don't want it. Like, hey, I've got a truckload of aluminum to scrap, who do I pay before unloading here? And which one of your tent-dwelling workers pinched my wallet?

I don't understand how you have scrap yards that let you take metal. Here is is a one way street. You can get paid for scrap, but there is no walking around for metal to take home. I suppose I should move to Texas now.

Maybe it is a local thing? I've gone to a scrap yard that both buys and sells in Massachusetts. Was maybe 10 years ago though.

Haven't found a good place in NH that does that. I can get drops and stuff like that in NH, but not at scrap yard prices.
