The chap I've been dealing with is called Sam. I've just dropped my bits off this morning - quoted 390 for what's in the photographs although I've added a few more so bumped that up a bit.

I confirmed with him that he's still happy to do wheel rims.

My lot in Hull must have expensive habits.

Out here the EPA license and compliance costs are round $100,000 a year for a small operation.  Adds on to the cost more than somewhat.........In fact,you could probably fly the stuff to India and return a lot cheaper job.

That place is actually quite a big operation (although very unprepossessing from the outside) and they obviously do a lot of contract work on new bathroom fittings etc.

Going by the clock in card rack they have around 20 employees.

If they're that big you're lucky that they'll touch one-off rusty old bits.

Well, they do.....

The owner / manager is quite a helpful chap and it's probably a profitable sideline.

Last place I worked was a big operation,but the owner had a radar for cash jobs,and would suddenly appear when a boxtrailer with a old  bed frame or old car bits came in the gate......A $20 note was enough to lure him out....
