    Default Surplus material - Aluminum/Stainless/Alloys

    Our shop trepans various materials and the process results in cores of various sizes. In the past we have always just sent this to the scrap yard, but only get pennies on the dollar for excellent material. Most recently we have been trepanning 6061-T6511 Aluminum leaving us with 6.50" dia cores x 48-96" long. This is excellent material and will clean up at ~6.25-6.375" OD. We would love to find someone that could use this material. We have certs for the original material that this came from (it was 14'' OD material. Any suggestions on how we can sell this material with the least amount of work. We do not want to sell on ebay and would prefer to sell all the material in one lot. We also have various cores in various grades of material that we do not have certs for. I've attached pics for review.

    Set/post a decent price, perhaps cut to length.

    Oh, you said you don't want to piece it out. Perhaps an employee would do that on his/her own time. It should not go for scrap when people still use aluminum.

    Ask for a buck a pound for the certed cores here, and perhaps $.60 for the non certed. I bet you'll find buyers, unless the stock came from China originally.

    So I'll ask - what's the country of origin and mill info?

    Commie metals! That stuff only works if you're building SR71's...

    I should clarify that my suggested pricing was for Al stock, not the SS and alloy. Just do the same sort of 1/2 or more off actual material cost, still much better than what you'd get from a scrapper.

    I'm guessing you buy the materials for your own products? Because I'd think that most production treppaning companies send the cores back with the tube stock, with invoices adjusted to suit.

    This thread went quiet quickly...

    The OP does state his/her occupation as "Controller", so that would be a person appropriate for disposing of excess assets (I think).

    Maybe DD's sleuthing spooked them, or just busy, or they've found a new use for them as very short, conductive telephone poles.

    So why were you not upfront with this ?
    Some ask "what are you trying to hide" ?

    No, but some on here were in doubt if the OP was legit.

    IF
    , IF the op would have simply taken (15) whole minutes to read a wee bit, before posting, they would have seen there is a proper place and method to post this material for sale.

    As the OP has made very few postings, however the for sale section does give much leeway, and I'd wager Mebfab would have let it stay.

    IF the OP was honest and upfront as to
    who they were, the fact that they are the company rep/owner (material wasn't stolen).

    Simple really.

    Sorry, OP, have to ignore DD sometimes, his spam radar is defective sometimes!

    You are probably going to need to sell locally as shipping would likely be outrageous, unless you have something in place (reduced rates, contract, etc)... I would try FB. We cut alum all the time, but not in those diameters.
