Boeing Surplus

Flew up to Seattle on a day trip on Tuesday, meetings were done around noon, decided, "hey, I'm gonna check out this Boeing Surplus place
people rave about"
Get to the place, find out they are closed on Tuesdays! :(
Maybe next time....

Yes, it's kinda cool to "prowl" the yard and see what sort of stuff you *need* for projects.
Here's the link: http://www.boeing.com/assocproducts/surplus /
Sorry you missed it. You need to plan your next trip a little better :-)

Here in Maine, we have the ocean-going equivalent of Boeing Surplus with Bath Industrial Supply - a privately owned company which handles all the surplus material and tooling from Bath Iron Works where they build U.S. Navy destroyers.
Unfortunately, I work on a lot of race cars and I would be much more at home rummaging through light weight aircraft surplus components than I am with heavy, cast iron naval items.
I do, however, occasionally find a deal at Bath Industrial - such as 100 lb. bags of Black Beauty blasting medium for less than $10 each.
Are there any sort of aircraft surplus outlets in the New England area?
B.P.

Please tell me more, Bob. I'm new to Maine and am getting desperate for a decent scrapyard. Where is this fine place?
Do you know any scrap places that have things in addition to scrap? For instance, one of my favorite places in Colorado (where I moved from) would sell things with wires on them for $1 a pound. If you knew what it was, it could be quite a deal.
Thanks, Steve Smith Brownfield

Excellent. Thanks very much. I've been asking the wrong places.

If you get THAT excited over scrap metal, I hesitate to introduce you to Liberty Tool Co on Route 173 in downtown Liberty, Maine - between Augusta and Belfast off Route 3.
Lots of machine tool stuff - some great deals, some pure junk, but a browser's paradise.
If you go, plan on several hours browsing.

Thanks. I've wanted to get to Liberty Tool for years from the stories I'd heard about it. Probably not until next year given the current task list.

Try the Pratt and Whitney surplus center in East Hartford CT. Not too much lightweight stuff, mainly motors, actuators, many machine tools, but you never know what turns up.
