Scrap Yard Beginnings

RECYCLING OLD CARS ~ A GROWING BUSINESS

Model T Ford Truck 1923

When your Model T broke down, you left it at the side of the road as soon as it stopped working. Basically, you would push it off the road and simply leave it there. Everybody did it. Not that long ago (up to early 60’s),  you still found old vehicles abandoned in fields and permanently parked on Any Street in Europe and the rest of the continents.  Sometimes, a car may be reported abandoned, A tow truck would find its way to that rust bucket and swoop it away. It was not unusual to see a broken down car left outside busy city streets for months on end. Shoppers and store owners would pass by the vehicles without a second thought. Day by day, you might see parts of the car missing. Especially, if the car remained idle and exposed for a long time. I have seen pictures of cars with birch trees growing inside the cars, right through the floorboards.

 

Kids Playing On Abandoned Cars

You could not get away with that today. The vehicle would get towed by the city and you would pay the fines at the pound. Generally speaking, people contact a licensed scrap yard or wreckers they find from the Internet. The wreckers will come to your house or shop and tow your vehicle to the scrap yard. People sometimes will leave their car in the driveway for a couple of years until they decide that it’s not worth keeping any longer. Perhaps, they need to hang on to the memories associated with their old car. Or, just too lazy!
IN THE BEGINNING
As soon as appliances and useful items were being manufactured they eventually broke down. You threw them out and bought another  stove or a new set of pots. The junk man would roam the streets collecting junk and bring them to his humble junkyard and make a small living at it.

Sanford And Son: This Is The Big One!

If you were looking for an old radio and could not buy a new one, you would visit the junk yard to see if he had a beat up old radio that still worked.  Junk yards stored old refrigerators, irons, cabinets and anything that was left out on the road or that they could salvage. With old cars, the junk man would tow it into his yard and sell parts to fix other cars. They sometimes sold the old beaters to mechanics who fixed up the cars to become roadworthy again. We have grown to a full recycling business. As fast as the cars run off the assembly line, another assembly line is created. Cars and trucks roll over the scales, get crushed, cubed and ready to make new cars bicycles an other steel products. Whatever you buy, you can be sure that 25% of it was made from recycled steel.

MODEL T 1930-1940

According to the old timers, it was hard to find a farm without several T’s out back in the 30’s and late 40’s. A model T was worth $10-$15 and sometimes as high as $20. These cars were slow compared to the newer models. After a while, farmers would load up the vehicles to the trains to be deposited at the nearest scrap yard.

SCRAP CAR BUSINESS TODAY
Scrap yards are found at the perimeter of most cities since big fields are needed to house the cars. Next, the cars are dissembled by removing the tires, gas tank and batteries. Oils and antifreeze are drained from the vehicle and it is ready for the crusher.Trucking these sardine cans to the processing plant where they are bundles onto cubes or melted into bars, coils and rods of “new” recycled steel.

Scrap Cars: The End Of The Road

After that , they are shipped all over the world or trucked to nearby plants for processing into valuable useful products like a new refrigerators, new car or steel grids. Remember that 25% – 30% of this new steel are reincarnated into brand news cars.

Sparkle Holiday Ornaments

HOLIDAY CHEER WITH SCRAP METAL ORNAMENTS
I thought I would give you advance notice for holiday decorations this year. It’s a good time to get started decking the halls and spreading the cheer. All you need are some wires, metal scraps, pliers or tools that bend and twist metal.
Last year, we brought you a coca cola Christmas tree. How about star ornaments for your tree.
FUN PROJECTS FOR YOUR KIDS
These coke stars can be single stars or attached together with craft beads or plastic thread. Add glitter for a brilliant star. You can use your own imagination and make your own fun design.

Tools For Christmas Coke Star

For complete instructions please click here–> www.craftster.org
If you use clear glue on the back of the tin, sprinkle red glitter (or another colour you like). This way the ornament will have sparkle. To show you how the glitter sticks to metal, take a look at these mason jar lids. Another fun project for your kids. Easy to make. You can make your kids name using glue and add a different glitter colour to make your child’s name sparkle.

How Much is Scrap Metal Today?

WORLD STEEL/SCRAP METAL FORECAST 2017 – 2018
In order for steel to remain profitable -24%-30% of scrap metal is used in its manufacturing to keep their costs low. Other benefits of using scrap metal is environmental;  striping less iron ore from the mines. Coal is also used to fire the furnaces in the processing of steel. Recycled steel manufacturing that use the new arc furnaces also use less coal that reduces the carbon footprint. Mining coal is still ravaging the environment.

Nucor (scrap metal) Steel Mill

Some plants burn shredded rubber tires in their plants as fuel and in manufacturing steel.Mini mills run according to local supply and demand. If international prices go up, it may take a while before you see changes on the local level. The benefit is that it does prepare you for changes, especially of there is a drop in steel and scrap metal pricing. It will help you prepared for a download trend. Get your magnifying class out. The map below shows production for 2017 and 2018. Note the Mt=million tonnes. The EU growth rate is is 5.2%. In some places you read a growth of 0.4% to 2.3%.  What is surprising is that Asia (China) looks like it’s going to take a big drop in 2018. There is supposed to be a slow down in China to level the playing field.


SCRAP METAL FORECAST 2017-2018
Earlier this year in Jan. 2017, the World Steel Association (Worldsteel), headquartered in Brussels, has released its short-range outlook (SRO)…In 2017, it is forecast that world steel demand will return to growth of 0.4 percent, reaching 1,494 million metric tons. The hope is that NAFTA and EU (European Union) are working on improving the price of scrap metal in conjunction with steel prices. Even though China is still in the forefront. It is hard to compete with cheap labour and low rent.
OCTOBER 2017 publication

So, world steel demand is recovering well, driven largely by cyclical factors rather than structural. The lack of a strong growth engine to replace China and a long-term decline in steel intensity due to technological and environmental factors will continue to weigh on steel demand in the future.” published by the worldsteel.org

Conflict in China and Korea are being repaired with diplomatic visits just last week (Nov 12,2017). It is better to get along, even compromises always results in an all win situation. They know it is mutually beneficial to remain co-operative and defuse any political uproars that may be ensuing.

IN CONCLUSION
We can only speculate and provide estimated values. Trends in pricing scrap metal are based on political and government situations as much as need for steel and recycled metals in their manufacturing. Thailand and Vietnam are showing greater demand for steel as they are experiencing growth in their countries. India is still being held back by their government to import steel and scrap metal. They are encouraged to buy and process steel/scrap metal locally. Brazil and the rest of South America have low growth numbers for 2018. To take a conservative approach. gwoth in scrap metal and processed steel looks very healthy with an estimated growth of 0.4% up to 3% growth.

Note: Ferrous METALS are magnetic and iron based. Examples of non-ferrous metals are aluminum, copper and gold. As you know, they are not magnetic. It is a good rule of thumb when you are not sure how to categorize a metal. Take brass for instance. It is metallic but not magnetic. Brass is then categorized as a non-ferrous metal.

Best Of The Best!

ITS ALL ABOUT THE TRUCK!
The US auto market continued its hot streak with more than 17.4 million cars and trucks sold. As expected, pickup trucks and SUVs accounted for much of the growth. Compact cars and mid-size sedans dropped in sales from 6% to 10%. Currently, Ford owns 40% of the full-size truck market and 34% of the overall pickup truck market. Ford trucks have always held the forefront.

The List Topper: FORD F Series
What does $49,000 buy you? The top of the line 4 wheel drive Ford Super Crew truck. Its light enough to travel with acceptable gas consumption. Your Ford truck is custom-made.  5 year roadside assistance. You can get a 5′ to 8′ box. It comes in 6 or 8 cylinder engines. 7 F series Models to select with a price tag starting at $27,380 -to- $60,520. It doen’t stop there. Prices can climb up to $100,000 easily with a fully loaded truck.
2018 FORD Line-up with all the bells and whistles!

XLT 4WD SuperCrew 6.5′ Box V8 Engine

The Ford F-150 inherits three new or updated engines, a more handsome face, and more available active-safety technologies for 2018. The aluminum-bodied, steel-frame F-150 was our choice as the top pickup among our 2017 10Best Trucks and SUVs, and the 2018 model improves on that strong base.published by caranddriver.com

Ford is not sitting on its laurels. They have made improvements to their trucks and added intelligence. Reclining, heated echo-friendly seats are at the top of the comfort scale. All trucks are now becoming more customized. Luxury on wheels along with power.

Ford has remained in the top two truck sales. GM is a close second and sometimes squeaks above the Ford line. There is a Toyota truck that is coming up in third place. It will remain name less.
Stay on top Ford!

Let the Games Begin!

ENTERTAINMENT WITH SCRAP CARS
Have you ever thought to yourself, “Now I’ve seen everything?” Then, something comes along that is totally mind-boggling. Here is something that you may not have thought was possible.  Another revelation that may have slipped your “Something New” list.

SCRAP CAR PING PONG TABLE
These outdoor enthusiasts enjoy a quick game of ping-pong to while away the hours. Those terra-cotta shingles makes me think of Arizona or California. Some warm spot in the U.S. where year round Ping Pong can be played outside. With the gravel around the table, the balls wont bounce to the neighbor’s yard. Looks like they have covered all the angles.

Ping Pong Anyone?

How about watching TV in the Bedroom? Complete the bedroom suite with a Mercedes bed frame ~ tires and all? You have to really love cars to do this to your bedroom!

TV Entertainment Center

Upgrade to a wider screen. If your Porsche died and you had great memories then you can keep your baby forever. Preserve it like a taxidermist!
You can even will it to your kids like the Tilly hat. (Great marketing there). It could have been someone else’s Porsche and this is the best you can do to own one for yourself. Which is it? You decide. Whatever the story you just have to love your car to immortalize it. And, why not? Life is too short to be judged by others. They say. “you can’t take it with you”? May be you can. I can see someone getting buried with their car. Nothing surprises me. Shocked ~ yes but not surprised.

My Porsche and Big Screen TV

This one might have escaped you. Your very own custom hot tub. For the cover use a ping-pong table ‘cover’ and you’ve got it made. Let’s call it what it really is.  A big wading pool for adults. I’m not sure how they got the jets working. You’ve constantly got to drain it and fill it up just like a kiddies pool. I find they are a lot of work.  Take a bath instead or jump in the lake. They are okay. I’m not a big fan. Knock your selves out! Enjoy!

Jacuzzi Anyone?

New Tesla Electric Truck!

LAUNCHING NOVEMBER 2017

Tesla will unveil its electric semi truck on November 16, the company confirmed today via email invites sent to press. The invites feature a full-size off-center image of the Tesla truck, still mostly clad in shadow, besides those iconic headlights we’ve seen in earlier teaser material. published in techcrunch.com

Tesla Electric Truck Nov. 2017

HOW GOOD IS IT?
You know it was coming at some point. Tesla’s truck is said to have between 200 and 300 miles of range per charge according to a previous report, which would require a significant battery capacity to achieve given the towing capacity of the truck category that Tesla is targeting. Good for short Hauls or port to port runs. Price of gasoline has starting to rise to $1.18 per gallon in Mississauga. Ontario, Canada. Electric vehicles are getting a stronger grip in our communities.
You will be able to see this new Tesla truck if you are passing by Hawthorne, near Los Angeles, California on November 16th.

JOLLY GREEN GIANT SIZE BATTERY
We spotted this Tesla proto type out in California. You can see the size of that battery. You’d think they would have solar panels on the top of the cab to charge the battery. Yes they do have -optional- solar panels on top of the cab! These trucks are built from scratch. No adaptation of gasoline driven trucks. Inside is a large screen panel with all the bells and whistles.

Battery for Electric Semi-Truck

The engineers a Tesla did not jump the shark. An electric pick-up truck has already been tested and road worthy. What comes after T as in model T..yes its “U”. The Tesla Model U (as in Utility) is available for Eco-friendly driving. I’m not sure if they will find a different name for it. Personally, I Like the model U.

Published by Truck Trend Edward A. Sanchez Aug 2016

The truck will also have a solar roof and optional solar tonneau panel for trickle charging when parked. Now you have an empty trunk in the front where the engine used to be.  Reminds you of the VW beetle?  This new storage area is called a frunk short for front trunk. Fancy additions are a frig and electrical outlets. You can power up right from your truck to run tools or plug-in an outdoor lamp. Talking about lights. The truck sends off a perimeter of light if you are working in the dark or dropped something in the ground in a dark area. Lets take a closer look at this frunk shall we?

Frunk: Center Panel Refrigerator. Ready For A Cold One?

PRICE: $60,000 $80,000 and $100,000. Remember, a comparable Mercedes will run up to $200,000. Mercedes has its electric car line too. It was reported that  360,000 pre-orders were waiting in anticipation for their own Tesla truck.
