Scrap - Bronze, Zinc, copper - Free (+ shipping cost)

Post by gangel99 » Thu Apr 18, 2019 3:34 pm

I am discarding scrap metals I hoarded for casting. They are free if you can pick up (I live near San Rafael, CA) or you can pay me for shipping. I have 40 pounds of mostly bronze (see photos), copper, zinc, and brass. Most of it is the bronze and copper with a few pieces of zinc and brass.

These are valves I cut off from WW II aviator oxygen tanks. There is one close up that shows the color of the metal. The photo with three of the valves shows a green collar at the top. This collar is steel and you may have to melt the bronze to separate the collar. The middle valve also has the valve wheel at the bottom which is Zinc and just held by a screw.

The scrap is about half a 5 gallon bucket and will fit into 2 large size USPS flat rate boxes. The valves alone will fit into one of them so you could pick what you want. The current rate for shipping the box is $17,60.
