  • Hi from London

    Ooo aint first posts hard to write, i fell like a new kid at school standing up in front of the class
    So here goes ,,,
    I'm from London UK, been scrapping since i was 12 or so, been doing it full time on and off ever since, i've been through all the stages from a large lorry (light iron collecting) to small car based pickup trucks (non-ferrous only) and now i'm older and have other more important issues to keep me busy i've once again downsized and concentrate on WEE scrap and this seems the place to be for that
    Interests are, scrap, metal detecting, gold panning and general ferreting about in other peoples trash to find treasure and selling it on ebay
    My main items are cable and satillite set top boxes, i get 20 odd per week at the mo, in the UK sky and virgin are updating thier boxes so the trash is full of them at the moment and i get the odd laptop and PC as little dollops of lovely amongst the humdrum VIR and midgrade boards not forgetting the ever present microwave although 50 % are now alloy cable filled transformer powerd so they are not what they were when it comes to cash return but you cant have it all.
    I have a few very crap vids on you tube showing my set up as it is at the mo, i just downsized workshops as i gave up spannering and have recently moved into the storage room and out of the main workshop i share with another mechanic.
    So thats me, dirt diggler, hallo chaps

    Hi dirt diggler, Welcome!

    Sounds like your doing ok with scrap, yeah satellite boxes have pretty good boards in them and always good to find.

    If you ever want to put up videos in a post you just click the paper clip icon on the left when making a post, then just paste the link to the video there.
