anyone need lead?

friend of mine in atlanta has 1000 pounds of wheel weights and the letters that were used on a printing press. Pretty sure the letters are linotype. about 500 pounds of letters and 500 pounds of wheel weights. He is going to take it to the scrap yard and cash it in unless someone here needs it.

He could log on to Castboolets and see if anyone local is interested...they would probably pay more than a scrap yard especially for the lino,if I was nearby I'd be all over the lino at $1 per lb and if the wheel weights were sorted(no steel or zinc) I'd offer $.50 per lb and take it all.

Ahh, don't scrap it. Treat it like a homeless dog. PM me and I can promise you that it gets a good home and treated well.

He'll get 2-3x more $$ selling it to a bullet caster. Lino easily goes $1.50/#, good clip ww @ 50c/#. The scrap yard will treat it ll the same, about 30c/#. If I were there, we could deal, I would happily buy it all.

You guys are not helping

The Linotype is worth more if you don't melt it down. Most think it is "legit" if it is still in type for print.
