Hot Stuff

Today was fairly productive, large amounts of brass (alloy), cast aluminium and copper were "cleaned off." A term we use in the scrap trade frequently, basically the process of seperating the metals from other metals, this is usually steel or iron. Obviously, this is less valuable but is still stock piled, in the right grade and quantity, it can fetch some profit.

I guess the highlight of the day was using the Oxy Acetylene cutting torch, I always enjoy using it. Something about having 3300C at your disposal, for you knowledgeable types out there, you will no doubt know that steel will melt at 1500C. So it's safe to say that the cutting torch can cut through anything in my yard.

(note: this is not me photographed, just images for reference for people who have NEVER seen a cutting torch before... Though I don't know how you can live with yourself if you haven't.)

Other than that, I came away with a gas welding torch and two standard cutting torches. Not that I'll need them anytime soon, but it's comforting to know that I have such advanced equipment at my fingertips.
