Sorry to barge in on your forum and ask for help, but I was hoping some other people who work for a living might help me out.
I recently lost my job and was approached by a friend with an "opportunity" to make a little money buying copper scrap from a closed Sam's Club. He wants to split the investment, the work, and the profits.
I'm looking for some insight as to how much copper is in a store like this. The auctioneer states that the copper scrap buyer gets everything from "12" of the units themselves through the compressor house and to the evaporator units/boxes."
But, from the pictures, it looks like the compressor house is outside and sits under the evap units? (I'm general construction, not HVAC, so I really have little idea what I'm talking about).
Does anyone have any insight as to how much copper there may be?
I have a chart that shows the weight per foot based on pipe diameter, but I don't want to drive 10 hours (yep, ten hours) @ 18mpg only to find out there is hardly enough to bother with.
Virtual beers to anyone that can help, PayPal enough for a sixer for anyone that really knows what he's talking about. Thanks.
