Free Stuff! To Wisconsin member in good standing

BromicAcid - 29-6-2016 at 15:59

Ten years... ten long years since this thread:

Back when I moved to Wisconsin I tried to find someone who wanted my glassware and other odds and ends I had accumulated over the years, but no takers. I didn't have time for eBay and I couldn't bring myself to toss the glassware (and I couldn't legally throw away the chemicals). Over the years I have brought many of the chemicals to the Clean Sweep they do in my area for hazardous waste disposal so that has been pretty much depleted, but I still have the glassware. I just shuffled around the tote today and was wondering if there was anyone 'nearby' that wanted what remained of my chemistry collection.

I live in Sheboygan and will drag it pretty much anywhere in the state (making a road trip out of it). U2U me if interested. I am giving this away to any member in good standing, if I cannot find one I will move onto eBay.

Shipping is... currently out of the question, probably weighs 50 lbs.

I also have the industrial scrubber that I built on a whim a few years back, I would toss (foist) that in too.

I live in Michigan near Detroit, about 7 hours from Madison. I can meet you halfway if you want to meet southeast of Chicago. Or, I could throw you a couple hundred bucks to pack it into some boxes and ship it. You got an approximate list of what's in there?

Is this the stuff featured in the book?

That would be doable, I will wait to see if there is anyone closer and contact you via U2U.

Giving this a bump for the weekend crowd.

Bumping this thread to see if there's any interest newly generated in the last 6 years.

I remember that scrubber project.
That in and of itself would be a real boon to anybody who lives in a high density area and needs to deal with the output of a fume hood.

I also really appreciate your position and hope this works out for you.

Is this post pinned? It sure ought to be. At least for a while.

edit: looks like the term is stickied here, but ya'll know what I mean.

Yeah, I know you don't sticky much stuff here, but this is freakin' Bromic Acid!
Anybody that consistently helpful over all those years must deserve a little consideration. Especially in a good cause.

If this stuff is somehow still available, I know a fellow university friend who may be interested. Near the Milwaukee area.

I'm in St Paul, MN, just across the border.

Picked up! Thanks for the space!

What a saga.
Ok to close the thread now?
