Trending Sandals 2017

Make Your Own (Recycled) Sandals
You can make great sandals from old tires.
Sandals can be made from the inner tube (like this first pair of sandals)  or the tread or exterior tire which is a lot tougher and harder to shape into a sandal.  Both applications work. They are simple to make. You can get fancy and glue terry cloth or some soft material for your inner sole. The possibilities are endless. Lets start with simple sandals. All you need is a pair of old shoelaces like this gent has done. You need a sharp carving knife,  something to puncture 3 holes for the laces (perhaps the tip of the knife ) and any old tire you can scrounge up. You should also have some chalk or a felt marker to make an outline of your foot for the pattern. Even an old shoe or the inner sole of one of your regular shoes will work as a guide. You can always trim back. I’d call this sandal your bare bones “REDNECK STYLE”. Shoes laces? I don’t know about that. He gets points for ingenuity. I sure would not have thought about shoe laces for strapping your feet in Fred Flintstone’s sandals.  They can be simple or complex sandals. It’s entirely up to you.

Personally, I like the thicker treads for do-it-yourself sandals. They look a bit more comfortable. I would glue an old terry cloth towel cut out for the bottom (inside) of the sandal. This gent glued in some old carpet ends to cushion his feet. When I’m at the cottage, people are always wearing your sandals. Make some guest sandals! Your friends will get a real hoot out of it and enjoy the fact that you or your kids spent the time to make these comfortable creations. You can get a few pairs from one tire. 
FANCY UP-CYCLED SANDALS
One lady had an idea to open a store that sold recycled sandals at a cost of $29.95 to $49.95. The dollars and cents of it is that they are very reasonably priced. New jobs were created that would boost the economy and the spirit. It feels good to work and be able to provide for yourself and your family.
These “rockers” look comfortable. Tire sandals are traditionally worn by the Maasai tribe in Africa. Notice the thinner leather for the toe grip. Good call! They all have a pair of these no fuss sandals. I like the “au  naturel”  look. More protection from the hot desert sands.

Maasai Tribe Sandals


(Video P.S. His sandals are heavy because he left the metal mesh on the sole. It is recommended that you can remove the metal mesh while you are removing the tread from the tire. It’s like peeling a banana.)

Scrappy Happy Artists

SCRAP METAL ARTISTS
It’s time again to honour the hard working Scrap Metal Artist. Bob Dylan has joined the ranks of scrap metal artist with his  “large”  gates for a Maryland Casino. Featured at the London art Museum where you could have bought a book with B.D.’s collection for  ‘gates’. This  has raised the status of scrap metal artists. Bob Dylan has spectacular pipes, an outstanding poet and now a scrap metal artist to boot.  He also loves to meld metal and create like any other laser yielding, metal crunching artist.  Let’s see what’s going on in the welding world of scrap metal artists. SHINE ON!!!
JOHN LOPEZ -Scrap Metal Artist
Let’s start with our cowboy John Lopez.

Bob Dylan – Scrap Metal Artist

How cool is this! Scrap Metal Sculpture is a unique and amazing work of art. Hand crafted from recycled scrap metals taken from old automobiles, commercial machinery, bicycle parts, old machine guns and other metal machines all rolled into one magnificent work of art.

Bisson – By John Lopez

Making something from metal requires a lot of patience and skills. Creating art from recycled metal materials takes a lot of time and accuracy. The details on these sculptures are amazing. No ranch is complete without animals. How about this bronco rider, riding a ram? You go cowboy!

SHIPS AHOY! Ready to be scrapped.

SCRAPPING A BIG OCEAN LINER
Easy to pick up car and vans to scrap. What about those big ships when their number is up? This video shows you how its done. Winter months are the best when to ground is frozen. Otherwise the ship would sing into the ground. When the ship is grounded about 1/8 is still in the water. As the crane progresses to the back of the ship it is brought forward onto the land. There is no special way to do it except gnaw at the ship with the grabber crane. A long and tedious process. Lots of scrap metal for up-cycled new products.
Built as the Mercator in Netherlands in 1952 this 290 gross ton cargo ship was … for sale on ebay for £350 pounds which is only about twice her scrap value
SS Mercator to SCRAP
A number of steamships have been named Mercator, including -. SS Mercator (1891), a Finnish cargo ship in service 1891-1916. Torpedoed and sunk in 1916. The scrapping of this  Norwegian large  ship is a monumental task.

CANADA’s Abandoned Ships
SMALL AND LARGE SCRAP YARDS
Dockyards and shorelines across Canada are increasingly littered with abandoned, discarded ships, Transport Canada suggests that Ottawa should build a scrapyard for ships.
OTTAWA EYES THE SHIP WRECKING BUSINESS

In Ontario the Kawarthas and Port Colborne provide recycling services for ships. websites –> marinerecycling.ca
Public pressure has brought these issues to the forefront. Some abandoned ships have not budged from the landscape. Please watch this video. If oyu remember the movie “Poseiden”.  It too is included in this video. Please watch.
ABANDONED SHIPS ALL OVER THE WORLD

Also recommended is the ongoing improvement of recycling technologies and collection systems to keep pace with “ever more complex products created with an increasingly diverse range of metals and alloys.”

Scrap Metal Prices June 2017

JUNE SCRAP PRICES 2017
It’s that time of month again. Scrap prices for June are taking a slight dip. The amount is so small that it should not prevent you from scrapping your car. Scrap metals are making a comeback.  Shredded scrap metal  demand has gone up 17% this year compared to this time last year. What’s interesting is that Turkey is bringing in more scrap metal from the U.S. and the Netherlands. China seems to be  slipping to the background. What is really significant is Thailand.

Scrap Metal CUBES

Thailand’s trade statistics showed that in April 2017, Thailand imports of scrap steel totaled 108,000 tons, increased by 97.3% compared with the same period of last year, growth of 54.4% compared with previous month.

Among them, Thailand’s scrap imports from the United States was up to 73,000 tons, significantly grew by 3176.6% compared with the same period of last year; the imports from Australia totaled 6,000 tons, grew by 103% compared with the same period of last year. provided by yieh.com

ANTI-DUMPING ACTIONS: The Ministry of Industry and Trade in most countries discourage dumping ‘cheap’ steel in any country. They call it ‘anti-dumping’ laws. It is not always strictly controlled. Additional tariffs will be levied on imported steel products as a temporary safeguard measure against cheap imports which have allegedly threatened the local industry. [ When India dumped (cheaper) steel in Thailand (May 2013) the governing powers had a 33.11% duty applied to the goods.] It’s also a safeguard for any one country to become a monopoly and corner the market for their own gains. We now read that China’s scrap metal prices have gone up by 20% (as they promised). And, it looks like business is shifting. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.

Steel Imports in Viet Nam had additional duty added by the local government.

Looking closely at the imports/exports around the world, there is a small decline in pricing for early June. We may be feeling the aftermath of May’s outcome. Fortunately, the overall forecast is looking good. We should see prices creeping back up in July and August.

May Trends 2017

In the U.S., shredded scrap steel prices stabilized after a 7.1% drop the previous month. (May 2017) Shredded scrap’s June price point is the metal’s second-highest of 2017. provided by AGMetalminer.com

The question you want to ask, “Are prices going up or down?” According to Donald Trump’s administration, the U.S. scrap metal prices went higher than the market could bear. The U.S. had to drop their prices in the last 2-3 month in order to compete with countries such as China.

Scrap Tire Invasion

THIS IS ONLY THE BEGINNING
Tires are the hardest to recycle. At some point everything we own will come from recycled material.

Welcome Sign -Recycled Tires!

Rubber tires are now made into trendy handbags, flooring tiles and crafts like this welcome sign. Designer furniture, shoes and even ‘tire crumb’ are used for paving roads. We use up tires very fast as we travel down the roads every day of our lives. Some old tires are a source of fuel for industrial plants in third world countries while they burn …deadly smoke! Ships from Canada and the U.S. export these tires to the countries that se tires for fuel.  As we look at this tire (tyre) graveyard in kuwait, it only makes us wonder where are we heading?

World’s Biggest Tyre Graveyard in Sulabiya, Kuwait

Satelite view: kuwait: An aerial image shows the vast amount of used tyres that are put in the ground – the patches are even visible from space


Scuba divers found massive amount of old tires in the ocean near Fort Lauderdale. they are cleaning it up bit by bit. An expensive endeavour.

RETAINING WALLS: UP-CYCLED TIRES
What is the future of our tires? Landfills are not going to solve the problem.

Up-Cycle Tires ~ Retaining Wall

THIS SPRING (2017) about 70% of Toronto Island was under water. The banks of the Port Credit river were at their highest level.  High water levels  in Lake Ontario would benefit from these simple and inexpensive retaining walls. Roll up your sleeves, get a shovel and start building your own backyard retaining wall.  Old tires are inexpensive and easily found at scrap yards. a fun project when you add flowers or herbs. Retaining walls have a double protection. They prevent land slides or are used to prevent soil erosion.  Both methods are very effective. Tires will not decompose for at least 100 years. You can be assured that the tire walls will stay intact for many years to come.

Tire swings are not the only way to reuse your old tires. This diagram gives you an idea about how to build your own retaining wall.

Paul’s Scrap ‘Seam Punk’ Tables

STEAM PUNK TABLES
I always like going to visit new scrap metal artists.  Scrap art takes the shape and form of just about anything. Chairs and tables are simple or sophisticated. It all depends on what you want.

Here are the latest artists’ creations to rock your scrap world.
This table lies flat on the welding table. All the pieces are soldered together. You then flip the table top over to get a smooth surface. The chain links are welded one by one to stiffen the links you form the perimeter. The base of the table has a stack of metal ’rounds’ one on top of the other. Any kind of base will do. This is what you do when you are cleaning up. Your workshop builds up lots of odds and ends.  Don’t throw them out. Make a table!  You can spray paint it with outdoor rust proof paint. A conversation piece for sure.  Novelty tables you can put in your “Man Cave” or just about anywhere, I would build this into a bird bath in the backyard. This table is christened as a “STEAM PUNK” table.

“Where’s that wrench? Oh! It’s in the table. You mean on the table …no..in the table!

Welding Plazma Torch Required

Here is one of many videos about repurposed tables. Have fun and make or buy a symbol of recycling or up-cycling. It is a good reminder that we should be diligent in our care of the planet.

Toys For Boys -AFTER

If you find an old singer sewing machine-made from heavy iron, you can make a table out of it.

SPIDERMAN: This is very cool. I really like how they made the table top like a spider’s web. Brilliant and fun table. That’s not going to get blown over on a windy day — any time soon!

Spiderman With Stools

This table is made from farm machinery and a saw blade. The big saw blade had been de-clawed for the table top. I have seen these tables when they leave the cutting edge on the blade. I liked the cleaned up version. You need to be a proficient welder to take on this project.
