We have a junk yard close to us that is a pick it yourself set up. They give you a wagon and you go in, look for whatever you want, get it out yourself, load it into your wagon, bring it back to the office and pay. You can take in hand tools, but no power tools. I wonder if we could get to that 'pillow case like pkg of insulation' with just hand tools?
We also have an 18 Wheeler junk yard about 45 minutes away from us. I've never been to that one, but have been wanting to go, to get a big truck horn. I wonder if they might have something like that?
