I just picked up a newholand manure spreader. The old style chain is not used on their equipment. This is what is used now. Very easy to replace a link.

There is a scrap metal place locally, but all you can do is look through the fence.  They won't let you look around.  The only thing I have been able to get from them was a piece of metal I saw and went to the office and asked about.  He said come back tomorrow and one of the guys will get it out for you.  I figured .... yea I bet they will, but they had it layed out for me. I paid a good price for what they were fixing to cut up but it worked for me.  It was the metal I put on the back of my logging winch.  It was something they got from one of the local metal fab. shops.

We have 2 major manufacturing companies in the area that used to let all the "scrap" go to employees, now both I think have to haul it straight to recycling ::).  It's enough to make a grown man cry to see what gets thrown away from just those 2.  My last score (years ago) was a bunch of 6"x1/2"x 4' flat iron, cut offs from something, I'm down to my last piece :'(.

Cant get over how much stuff comes to your junkyard and that they let you look through it.  

How much area does it serve, your county, several counties, half the state?
Within a 50 mile radius we have around 25 junkyards or more.
I only take a very small amount of very good stuff. You should see the stuff I don't take.
It's like when I bring home electrical stuff. I take a hand full of thing out of 55 gal drums of stuff.
I could never bring it all home.

I use to haul alot of metal home from my past job. Sometimes I would find a real nice piece and try to get a slip for it,but than be told,I can't let you have that. So I stopped digging out the real nice stuff. ::)  Some of the guys thought I was odd taking all that stuff home.City people,what do they know. I have probably ten 5 gallons buckets of nuts,bolts and washers I brought home. Maybe only a coffee can at a time,but it added up. I have them almost all sorted by sizes.  Got tired of spending 15 minutes looking for bolts,nuts and washers.

We have only one place that buys junk metals (CHEAP), they also sell new metal at fair prices for here, will order anything you need too.

Anyway a couple of years I was in there and their price list of what they paid was on display, leas was something like 12 cents a pound. I was needing some lead and ask if they would sell any, the person waiting on me at first said sure, but when he ask a manager what the price would be, he said they couldn't sell any to me.

At the time I thought he just didn't want to let me know what the going price was since they were only paying 12 cents, but I know a little about the business, and they are generally under contract to supply so many pounds to their buyers to get the best price, and they may no have had any excess.
This year I was in there getting a weight slip for a load of logs, and in the floor was a box full of nice lead ingots, that had been cast in lyman molds, which I took home with me. I paid the going rate, but it was nice clean lead

I got ten more band blades today. I would have been 11 but I got mad and put one back in the junk pile. I always thought I was good at coiling up band blades. Today I needed to coil up about half of what i found. One band blade I could not coil up for the life of me. I bet I spent 20 minutes trying to coil that one band blade. I could not do it....

But it is possible for a blade to be kinked in such a way the it will not coil.  There is one documented somewhere here on the FF.  (I'll try to find it.)

I had one once that I could coil but it absolutely would not stay coiled. Have you ever noticed that after coiling a band that your hands are not positioned properly for uncoiling.  I thought about stepping on it or holding it between my knees but it was the hot summertime and I wasn't wearing boots and carharts, but shorts and barefoot. I was only setting the bands, no need for all that PPE right? Wrong! The only thing to do was to throw the thing and hope it got far enough away before it opened up and got me.

What got me was I coiled 5 blades before this one. It was the last one. I tried many times and it went back to the junk pile. Thinking back I think it was the next to last one. But I went back to it but it won. If it's still there when I go back in a few days maybe I'll try again. I'll look for kinks.

I went back to the yard and on my forth try I coiled up the resisting band. Also found one more.
I also found 8 cam bearing that I took off some kind of equipment.

Take your bands and lay them flat on a concrete floor.  If you have one that won't lay flat its sprung.  It may or may not coil ok but guaranteed it will never saw right.

That's something to check for if you have a band that's sharp and set right but won't saw.

I had a couple of sprung bands that a guy dropped off to be sharpened!

They wouldn't even feed around the sharpener correctly, and I couldn't coil them!

When he came to pick them up, I explained to him why those two bands need to be trashed, by laying them on the floor! smiley_thumbsup

So, they went into the recycle bin!

I bet with the proper application of heat and cool you can unspring them. not sure what it will do to the rest of the blade though. may just be creating hard spots that are going to break later.

K, for you I would say its totally worth experimenting.
I knew what I thought I meant.
