Treasures for somebody, maybe


by Roger S. Lucas

Need a one-eighth inch steel sewer rodder storage reel? Or five pole-hanging Christmas lights?

If you do, or are in the market for a list of surplus items at Electric City, then you may find bargains galore. Just go to city hall.

Every year municipalities and other agencies go through their closets and bins looking for items that they no longer need, to declare them surplus.

That’s what Electric City’s council did last Tuesday night.

Declared surplus in addition to items above were:

• a Lincoln 240-volt welder (it works);

• a 120-volt sewer auger, with some parts;

• a General Electric 50-horsepower vertical well pump (it works);

• an Elgin sweeper wheel;

• two Fairbanks-Morris self-priming non-clog pumps;

• CMU blocks, about 10-15 partial and full pallets;

• eight-inch 511 romac couplings for D/W steel;

• a box of assorted four-inch ABS/PVC fittings (about 40 pieces);

• assorted epoxy-coated steel elbows and tees (4 to 8 inches);

• assorted metal parts, including an old vehicle fuel tank, jack stands (not safe), and about 100 feet of one-inch cable; and

• 50 feet of two-inch galvanized pipe.

Happy hunting.
