Free metal !

I have been metalworking as a hobby for 30+ years and have accumulated a lot of material. Now we are moving to Vancouver Island and it's time to clean out the shop.

I have a some larger pieces of material I would like to sell (to fund restocking the new shop) - a few samples listed below.
5' x 1-1/4 diam stainless rod $10
26" x 3-1/2" ID (4" OD) hydraulic tube (honed ID) $5 (4 available)
6" long 3-1/2" cored bronze (1-1/4" core) $30
4" long 3-1/2" cored bronze (3/4" core) $20
Various 2' - 5' lengths of steel bar for a couple of bucks a piece

I also have about 1000 lbs of offcuts, bar ends, etc. These are mostly small 6 " - 18" long and from 1/4" to 4" section, square, rectangle, round, hex, tube, angle Mostly mild steel, but some stainless, cast iron, aluminum. All handy sizes for model making, robotics, etc. Also some bits of brass and bronze, springs, pulleys, gears and fixtures - everything free for the taking. Come and pick up a box or two. I would like to get this out of the way by end of April otherwise it goes to recycling.

Also have some tools listed elsewhere on this site.
