Dispatching sil. bronze?

Any ideas on where I can sell some of my stock besides getting peanuts from a recycler?

Re: Dispatching sil. bronze?

I you were UK based I would be interested. I frequent another forum for metal casting and the guys there are mostly north american based and are always looking out for a good source of metal.

If you dont want to join I will be more than happy to post a thread there for you. Just give me as much detail as possible and I'm sure someone will snap it up.

In short, it's not really an option.

I appreciate that, mantrid. I may take you up on the offer.
Mantrid, Jim and raspero: There is the option of international flat rate shipping with a 70 lb limit: http://www.usps.com/shipping/prioritymail.htm
I still need to go through my stock and see what I have.
I don't quite know how much I want per pound; for now, I was trying to determine other options besides scrap recyclers. I'll send PMs once I'm ready.

Thanks, again.

I have a California shipping address that I go to every few months to get stuff.

Re: Dispatching sil. bronze?

Went through my stock, and I have 205 lbs...
Anyone?

Also, chopping some of it up and mailing flat rate international is an option

Re: Dispatching sil. bronze?

I really doubt that your price would be competitive if you had to send it internationally by post. Where exactly are you located? A local pickup would make the most sense for something like this.

Re: Dispatching sil. bronze?

That's why I specified sending some of the stock internationally for those interested. The limit is now at 20 lbs for flat rate, per usps.com

I'm on the West Coast, and would be willing to drive out to parts of CA/NV/AZ/UT... I could visit friends that are out of state and make it a dual-purpose trip for me, while saving someone from paying for shipping.

Re: Dispatching sil. bronze?

The West Coast is pretty long - care to pin it down a bit more? How much are you asking for the metal, exclusive of postage? Is this clean ingot, a bunch of sprues and risers covered with investment, or something in between? Did you only ever melt one kind of metal, or is this a mixture of things?

Re: Dispatching sil. bronze?

I need to make room, and still have bronze up for grabs.
All Everdur from the same order. This is all clean stock from failed casts that I can chop up and mail via flat rate... International Flat Rate is also possible.

If anyone is interested, let me know!
