Woah! You DO "got stuff"....Sancho's Horse wrote:I have seen dumpster diving that would boggle your mind. Until you have seen a million square foot factory emptied, in a bad auction/economic times, you can't imagine what an industrial dumpster looks like. It was sad in a way, but after the auction and after everyone else had mostly picked through, I brought home all the things I thought I might need for the future. I have a shop on some land out in the country, and it fills that shop from floor to ceiling. Everything from industrial fans, to overhead cranes, to a chemistry hood, to various outdated equipment, to filing cabinets, to water deionizing canisters, to ultrasonic cleaners, to... too many things to list. Someone asked me if I was afraid of things being stolen, and I am not. If you were to try to go in there in the dark, you would, in all likelihood, die. The stuff protects itself. I did have an I-beam stolen from the outside. I thought it was too heavy to be stolen, but I was wrong.
I think most people just got what they thought they could sell. I decided to begin planning. In the auction, I saw the ability to do important industrial processes at a very high level, packaged up and shipped to other parts of the world for paper gain (which could easily disappear the next day). I thought, if they have spare industrial ability just laying around, getting trashed, I am going to pick it up, learn what I can about it, and decide if I can put it to use. Others figured out what I was doing and they just brought me boxes of useful stuff. I am going to put it to use, building business (no, not e-bike business). I do, however, know there is a lot of talent here, and...
I wonder if all this talent could develop some products which a Kickstarter (yeah they do tech too) could move into reality
On a side note, I have this old Verimet eddy current tester.
I know the more recent models let you test welds, any idea if this is or could be made capable?
damn that's a nice bike! lucky basterd...Lebowski wrote:my most recent find (not dumpster but $150 is a steal) and next project bike for Mac mid-drive:
