Thanks for the replies, some good info. yesterday we purchased 16 55 gal drums and cut the tops out this morning, have those staged by the door as I type and just taking a break from sorting, lots of brass copper and lead. thousands of nuts and bolts; most with the square nuts. Just found a pail full of 3/4 inch SS nuts and bolts.
So far I have a 2x2 area sorted.....lets see at that rate......Hmm I need this shed in 6 days for the pigs; think some hard decisions will have to made.
The worst part about it is I am a tinkerer as well and really hate throwing stuff out, but I'm 53 now so projects need prioritizing.
I do have things I would identified if possible, should they be posted here or......
Thanks for all the advise guys appreciate every one of them!!
Cheers - Jeff
