Use a cheese slicer and slice off what you need if the whole block is overkill (pun intended). I can loan.......... ah, give you some.

I would assume they keep those locked up just for the scrap prices.

At least around me I usually see the old furnaces in a big pile behind the buildings.. blowers often still in them. The condensor unitsans A cools are usually not there.. I think they are more concerned with the copper coils than they are with a little copper in a 1/2 horse fan motor.

Hey Charlie,
Stupid question... can you spray Ospho? Once I get the new sheet metal up, I want to ospho it and it would be a metric shlt-ton easier to spray than roll it.

I like easy. Sometimes I even like sleazy. But that's a different story.


Now go answer my other thread (to be uploaded shortly).

Yes I keep a spray bottle full for various jobs. Makes application super easy.
On a floor its easy just to dump some and mop/sweep/spread it around.

I meant paint sprayer not spritzer or whatever. Hopefully the sides of my bus stay vertical. Hurricane should miss here completely.

You could go all out and use a paint sprayer.
but a $10 pump sprayer from HF will do the same thing without all the cleaning up when you're done. I use an old windex bottle and find that to be sufficient.
It'll spray out of anything, though.

That PPE I already have. Used it while painting and xleneing. Gloves for the xyleneing would have been nice. The latex ones don't hold up so well (read as about 2 minutes before they are completely useless).

Already have paint sprayer. Don't know where my bug sprayer went off to. Not sure where the spritzer top went even.

When I was doing my floor I was pouring some out (for my homies who couldn't be here) and spreading it around with a big bristle brush.

Now I use a plastic spray bottle. I just redid my battery tray, I should post some pictures of that in my thread.
