PostSubject: Aluminum   March 13th 2009, 4:44 pm

I'm trying to figure out what to do with some aluminum I've acquired. (5 pieces of ~1/8" wall rectangular tube ~4.25"x6"x37.5"; and 1 piece x-track(?) ~1.25"x1.25"x75").

I don't really know of a purpose that would make the most of their value: I'm currently working on finally building an EZ Bridge, but I don't see a particularly good application of this aluminum for that.

And I don't want to use them for something that could be done as well - or better - with a less expensive alternative; I don't need a gold back scratcher.

My Internet searching has me thinking this could be worth ~$200 or more. I'd love to sell, trade, or barter it.

Any thoughts? Or should I just start listing it for sale (or trade or barter) here, or on SMC, Craig's list, etc.?


Many thanks,
Mark

Hi Mark. Welcome to the EZ forum. About the only thing I can come up with for the rectangular tubing is 4 table legs, (And a spare Wink ) for a new Power Bench. I don't know exactly what the x-track is so I can't make a suggestion. You might consider selling the materials and putting the proceeds towards some new EZ tools or maybe some wood for a project. If I got that aluminum tubing I'd use it to replace the 2x4s as the legs for my PBB. Maybe someone else has some better ideas.

Thanks, Bruce!

Yeah, using them for legs seems to be what comes to mind first. But it just seems like *so* much overkill (I need to post photos; I've got to figure out how to do it on this forum). They're basically the size of 4"x6" (actual) timbers.



And here's what the "x-track" looks like:

I suppose I could cut the square tube items to make BIG angle stock, but I'm leaning towards selling (or trading or bartering) the stuff and getting more EZ tools (or *any* tools; can't have too many, can ya)? I think that's the way I'll go...

Mark,

It is simple. You use either of these two buttons, depending on where the pictures are to be hosted. Clicking either button will open a pop-up window, clicking the button a second time will close that pop-up window.



The right button is used when you want to post a picture that is already hosted elsewhere (i.e. in a Picasa Web Album). Clicking it gives you this pop-up window. You simply enter or paste the URL in the text box and click the "Ok" button.



The left button is used when you want the picture hosted by the host that is used by the forum. Clicking it gives you this pop-up window.



You can browse for a picture that is on your machine (as is selected in this picture), or enter the URL of a picture that is located on the Internet. Clicking the "Browse" button gives you a "File Upload" window from which you can select your picture.



Once you have selected your picture file and clicked the "Open" button, click the "Host It" button, and the pop-up window changes to this.



There are three choices for how you want the picture displayed. The top will select the code to display a thumbnail of the picture, that when clicked will open the picture in another browser window.



The middle button will select the code for displaying the picture in your post.



And the bottom button will select the code that will display a link to the picture on the hosting site.

https://i.servimg.com/u/f83/12/63/07/52/ez-log10.jpg

When you click the "Copy" button next to your choice, it highlights the code for implementing that choice. You simply copy (Ctrl-C or right click/Copy) the code into the clipboard and paste it into the post where you want it to appear.



Clicking the "Preview" button will allow you to preview what the post is going to look like before you send it.

Thanks so much for the excellent guide, Dik! It's hard to beat a visual for helping to explain, isn't it?

And thanks for all your work on behalf of the whole EZ community! (holy cow, I see you posted this at 4:00am?!).
