Very sad...

I presume that he meant $10K in scrap metal value.


Should we hold a memorial? Lower the flags to half staff?

Each LB is worth about $5 to $8 in scrap. I recently checked the price of scrap magnesium and aluminum and it was at around $0.15/# IIRC. And of course you'll get much less if you don't separate the different metals.

Also appears to like green, probably john deere green, spray paint. It doesn't look that good in the picture, I'm sure it's a real mess in person.

Wonder why he has so many lawn boys???

I bought one from a guy that thought he was increacing the value of it by rattle-canning pretty much everything JD green. I was about sick when I got there to pick it up to discover that. The low-res and small CL picture really didn't show the "new" paint job at all. It's all better now though!
