    scrap prices

    Well that's is most of my casting lm25 (356) Sold sad but I don't have is desire to hoard if I'm not casting. 0.75 per kilo. Not great but....

    65cents a pound here brother for 356. Sounds about the same. If you want a real beating, drop off a bunch of copper, you won't get shit for it either.

    I got a better rate than it cost me (Mostly from a job that put me into administration) it was damn good alloy and it pained me to shift it but I need pounds in my pocket so playing with the molten stuff had to take second place.

    Jagboy: That's more like 35 cents a lb if my math is correct 750/ metric tonne for cast, 700 for general

    Edit: I've a load of copper I was hoping to scrap, worried - yes

    whoa... the pound is low. $1.29 to 1. OUCH. Time for a trip to the UK. Last time I looked it was $1.43 to 1.
