      Thanks guys,
      Love seeing price updates. I'll be sure to add my results when I finally get around to selling anything!

        Another scrap run yesterday. Prices are down 10-20 percent except for LG Insulated Copper wire, although they are being fussier about any attachment wire that might be in there.

        I was going to cash in some bare bright wire but $7.30/kg wasn't doing it for me. My storage cage was overflowing so i did cash in the following:

        LG insulated Cu wire: $2.35 x 18kg = $42.30
        Cast Al: $0.80 x 19kg = $15.20
        Extruded Al: $1.35 x 46kg = $62.10
        Aluminium Irony (high): $0.30 x 8kg = $2.40
        Cu Attachment Wire $0.75 x 6kg = $4.50
        Electric Motors: $0.67 x 13kg = 8.71
        Light Gauge Ferrous: $0.09 x 40kg = $3.60

        If anyone tracks Cu can you give me a shout out when bare bright is a fair price again.

          Ha ha - we'd be knocking their door down in the west if they were buying bare bare bright for $7.30 - I'm getting $6.50........

          Copper been trending down for a couple of months now.

            67 cents seems pretty good to me for electric motors! Especially if copper has been trending down..

                Off to Sims.
                Decided to cash in some copper just to see what the prices were like. I think they were reasonable.
                I also had ~20kg of 1" rod. He gave me "oversize" for my whole 75kg. (no wonder I had to empty half the microwave of steel rather than damage my back).

                LG insulated Cu wire: $2.40 x 27kg = $64.80
                Extruded Al: $1.40 x 19kg = $26.60
                Cu Milberry: $7.70 x 5kg = $38.50
                Cu Bright/Green $7.35 x 5kg = $36.75
                Cu Burnt: $7.05 x 5kg = $35.25
                Pb Batteries: $0.74 x 39kg = $28.86
                Ferrous Heavy Melt O/S: $0.12 x 75kg = $9.00
