    There are at least 2 in Waupaca Wisconsin, and another in Evansville. The ones in Waupaca were formerly owned by Thyssen Krupp but were sold to a Japanese company several years ago. The one in...

    In our area the recyclers are getting picky. They will only take "prepared" materials meaning each piece can contain only 1 metal. The complete piece must be all aluminum, all cast iron, all steel,...

    As an FYI the older Delta scroll saws (model 40-440 and similar) could also be used as a die filer. I'm sure they aren't as stout as machines purpose built, but they seem to be more than adequate. ...
