Time to break down the latest scrap metal finds. “Everyone’s gotta start somewhere,” and this SwifferSweepVac from a neighbor’s curb looked like a good project. To the right is the scrap plastic and a wad of NiCd batteries and the tiny pile of metal in the middle is the only stuff of any real value. There’s some copper in that motor but I’ll have to get at it with a hammer.
The handle pieces are aluminum but plugged up with turquoise-colored plastic that won’t pop out — so aggravating. :/
