  • Copper Stacker Buckets from millberry copper wire

    Millberry copper wire is about the purest form of copper scrappers find, Bare Bright is another term they use for Millberry.

    I enjoy stacking metal, kinda like bullion and copper is a great metal to stack as it's holds value well, unlike gold & silver ATM
    Anyone that stacks copper bullion know's too well of the high premiums when it comes to buying copper bullion bars or coins so I make my own.

    I call 'em the "Copper Stacker Bucket"

    Using millberry copper only keeps it all uniform in purity, some wire that appears to be millberry may not be if it has any kind of residue on it.
    so not the coated insulation, anything with even the slightest coating of laquer renders it as #2 copper, or burnt copper as they say.
    But even glue, degaussing cable wire can be millberry but if the glue residue from the insulation tape remains on the wire and is all sticky, then it's technically not millberry.

    So this is what I been doing, today i'm packing another bucket which reminded me of these pic's I took of the first one I made.

    Here I filled a bucket with 10 kg's initially but realised I could fit more, these buckets I use are yoghurt buckets from a kebab shop, they seal very tight..





    It's mostly degaussing cable wire and from small copper spools, Wire strippers also get millberry, I don't strip wire but would for the purpose of stacking pure copper..

    I squish down the copper nice and tight, this is how 10 kg looked..





    Then put in another 5 kg's, I could of squeezed another few kg's in but thought i'd make the bucket easy to handle at 15 kg's..

        I like the way you stack it .. Copper has been up and down lately but .. Not as good as when the copper boom a few years ago... I'm in the process of buying a wire stripper to stick more copper I like to try and fill 44s nothing looks better the a full 44 of bare bright lol

        I met up with a local cast metal refiner a few months back and yeah that's what I want to do with a few metals, cast them into bars.

        For my personal stack I keep some metals like brass, copper and aluminium, Aluminium is a fun thing for me and I have a stack of different items for a hobby thing I got.

        I want cast aluminium bars of specific things, like a bar from extruded heat sinks, a bar made purely from aluminium pots! a bar from aluminium cans, from cast alloy too.

        Same as brass, I want a brass bar cast solely from brass pins I pluck off cables ends but that's just a hobby thing, the copper stacker buckets are serious bullion
