I may have the engine scavengers on video. I have a couple cameras pointed out there.

Return to curbside trash pickup?

I was down in PHX last week visiting my Dad in PV.

I came across two of these on the corner with a free sign. It doesn't appear it was ever used.
There is another one exactly like it, still in the box.
Had to unpack the car, put the assembled cage into the car, then repack the car into the cage.
Worth it!!!

Well its that time of year in my neighborhood. Road side trash pickup! So i needed something to haul a bunch of old brick out. Off to the streets to find somethng i could weld a wheel too.

And what do i see!

Wheelbarrow missing a wheel. Yes score!

Grab a hf wheel with updated tire, jackshaft, and some couplers i already had. And bam good to go. Works great.

Found some good stuff this week!

A tire for my wheelbarrow

and a tool box! yes. i've been looking for one for awhile now. Really need to pick up a big one with wheels. but this should do for free.

had some dead wasps in it! but other then that was clean. Oiled up the rails on it and the thing is pretty nice.

I almost didn't grab it but when i opened it up and saw KRZR 103.7 the wild hard sticker i had to have it!

KRZR was the heavy metal rock station of the 90's and somewhat into the early 2000's but they closed up awhile back. Only good station in Fresno.

Anyways moved it outside so i could sand and throw on some new red paint. Drying now should be good as new when im done.

When I lived in Boulder, we used to go to the mile high flea market down in Denver.
It was like 80 acres.
Whatever you were looking for, most times you could find at least 8 or 10 of them.

It would take the whole weekend to browse.
Man I miss that.

i like to talk to the people out front. Ask them about the things they throw away.

Lawn mower from one guy he was going to go back and get me the replacement wheels he had for it. but i only wanted the engine for a project.

looking for padding for seat cushions a lady went into the back and came out with a large pillow thinking it would be good for me. but it wasn't.

but yah hording....i try not too hord. just threw out a bunch of stuff..But new things build up quick.

all my junk is good trash digger stuff. when i put them out front for trash they disappear fast. makes me feel good. like i was keeping useful stuff. Everyone wants my junk.
