      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

scraping central AC unit

Recommended Posts

I read a post somewhere awile ago about scraping out a central ac unit for scrap iron. I really dont remember the specifics though I was thinking all they did was drain all the oil and brought it in and got $70 $80 for it. Anybody know anything about this?

I think you get $15. If you drain the freon you get a little more. I gave mine to my HVAC guy (bro-in-law) when he took mine out.

Roofer is right on the money.

If you strip the unit. Separate all the different components you will get a little more.

Copper #1, with no brazing/solder three weeks ago was around $1.40 LB.

Copper #2, With brazing/solder $1.30 LB.

aluminum/copper coils (clean) that means the cap tube cut off the ends and no

steel attached. 0.45 LB.

Sheet steel $100 a ton.

With those numbers I can get about $30 dollars out of a large unit. It takes me

about 20/25 min. to strip one and 7 gal. of gas to get to the scrap yard and back.

You do the numbers...

The refrigerant and the oil in the compressor ARE hazards waste, and you do

need a license to handle it. Thank you G. Bush the 1st. TDF opps did i say that.

Since the recycled metals market took a dump a month or two ago, it's almost not worth it to process stuff any more, if you are just getting rid of it as junk.

I got $87 for the consdensor and lines from my daughter's rig this spring. Drilled holes in the compressor. I guess it depends on how far you have to go to sell it and whether you want to screw around. Just the compressor may be be worth the effort.

Piece on KARE11 tonight about how the price has dropped considerably. Guess my experience last spring was timing the market. Now if the broker could only have done that!!

Copper prices are less than half of what they where three months ago.

Bare brite is $1.40lb, was 3.10lb

#1 heavy is $1.03lb, was 2.90lb

It's not going to get any better anytime soon, if you are sitting on some scrap I'd sell it now or prepare to hold onto it for years.
