NOW you tell me!!
Anyway, I need batteries and angle iron next. I begged all the Oklahoma battery distributors for some old batteries they had lying around and even offered them some cores. No dice. Seems they're all in business to SELL batteries and not give them away- go figure. I would think 65lbs of leaded fury Trojan T-105 cores would be a battery recycler's dream. Guess they're 65 lb doorstops.....
