Melt those saddles down & take the winter off! Are those the ones with the
cork gasket? Nice unit, we've used 'um.
Both them buckets are heavy as Sh!t..
are they really worth that much dough?
Check the brass prices...could be worth the melt..my guys used to save all
the copper/brass & take it in every year...they did well. Now? CHA-CHING!
They are worth what a plastic saddle tee is worth, so far as being useful. (and they still are)
Best thing about those, was the melting tool you heated with a torch, to burn a hole in the pipe, after you tightened down the saddle tee.
Yep, but they were brass..& we thought that would work, oh well.
Those poor saps working with PVC never got to heat up the ol' "branding iron" to make that hole. As far as I see, the fitting was fine, but the pipe could stretch, and ultimately split at the hole.
Brass and copper prices are way up.........take em to salvage yard and have a party.....
Is that an old piper puller?
We have 5 buckets of copper, brass, backflows that will get turned in soon. I just give it to my employee, tell him to strip it down on his time, and it's a bonus. No money out of my pocket that way.
You do have to separate the various classes of brass in your scrap, and remove all the non-brass material, in order to get the best price. I wouldn't wonder that an old saddle tee might not still be worth more as a usable fitting.
