Some stainless is magnetic, but I'm no metalurgist.

stainless is very hard to cut,the stainless parts that we use are eye bolts,hinges and pop rivets,take a file and see how soft the metal is.I would do it on an end.

Jack sent me some info and I am finding there are several types of stainless steel. From what he sent me, I am thinking it is either t-416 stainless or 17-4 stainless steel. I am still thinking it is stainless.....may put a few drops of water on it tonight and see if it rusts....

A couple days of rain and no rust. Definitely stainless. May keep them just because they will not rust...and they are heavy. I have not had a chance to weigh them so still not sure of the weight. Stainless scrap price is around .50 and they work too well to sell them for a $100 total. Just a nice bonus in the deal. Made my pricey deal a little more tolerable.

Scott, Magnetic Stainless here at our recyclers is $0.62 a pound. I would check around, you may be dealing with a middle man trying to make his cut. I am lucky that we have CMC Steel here in Seguin, so I get to sell straight to them. You might also want to call a couple machine shops and see if they are interested in those shafting drops.

With the help of my good friend Jack, I found out they weigh around 60-68 lbs a piece!! No wonder my back was hurting after moving them around several times!! That was 240 plus lbs on the aerator!! I may sell two and keep the other two......will check locally with some of the local machine shops to see what they say....I am in no hurry to sell them.......good deal thanks for the info Brian!

I would wait for prices to go up too. Then sell them all, and fill some 6" PVC with concrete & cap off. They won't rust either! :smilewink:
