Pleasant surprise

Gentlemen,
I got a very, very pleasant surprise today, the company I work for currently
lease their premises but are have their own place built at the moment and we
are starting to have a clearout.
I used my trailer the other day for work purposes and got asked by
management if I would be interested in disposing of some steel for them and
what I got for it was mine.
Bare in mind that everything we make in Italy is in 316 Stainless including
all kinds of fasteners etc.
Yesterday I took my trailer in and removed all of the non stainless and
plastic fittings and loaded the trailer with scrap sheet, box sectional
frames and a few odds and ends. This morning I trotted off to the scrapman
got weighted in unloaded and weighted out.
To my delight I found I had just unloaded 240 Kg's at a £1.00 a Kg.
I cant wait for the next clearout :-))
So my Dorset week is paid for.

Keep an un-useful bit too. Thin 316 stainless plate (even full of holes) makes a good electrode for electrolytic de-rusting.

Just happen to have a bit, I fetched some more to the scrappy from another source today via a work colleague so we will split the spoils between us.

Correct me if I am misinformed, but doesn't using Stainless in electrolysis release chromium and other metals into the electrolyte? I seem to remember this as the main reason for not using SS. Graphite seems to be a much better option, albeit somewhat harder to get hold of.

Yes, and so what? What it _doesn't_ do is release chromium in a hexavalent state, as is sometimes claimed. Although the waste is more noxious than plain iron, we're not into Erin Brockovich territory.
Not really. Lead peroxide works, if you can be bothered setting it up (and the electrolyte is probably worse afterwards than with the chrome in it).
