A useful junk find
Posted by: Listener
Date: November 07, 2017 09:58AM
I went out for my weekly Monday park excursion and was finding the usual few dollars in clad and as usual picking up the scattered bottle caps as encountered when I noticed one was a refrigerator magnet. Immediately it went into the finds pouch as I thought, I can use that.
This conjured up other thoughts about making my own with the others I had found,buying packets of disc magnets and putting them to a practical use. I could use that jar of pennies I have found to buy them with. Maybe I could sell the bottle cap magnets at a small profit, etc...
Nah. Clean those pennies and buy a silver eagle. See how your mind wanders when You're out swinging the stick.

Sounds like a great idea! Making the magnets. Would be good if you can find older caps in good shape like grape nehi.

Yes, I remember those Nehi grape belly washers from my childhood in Oklahoma, we would get them at the filling station, when riding in the ole Ford truck with grandpa that had a front windshield that opened up at the bottom so air could flow in and your voices warbled when you talked because of that. In that rural community they had traveling movies and they would set up a screen and folding chairs in a pasture and people would get see a western movie. Gosh if I could just remember where that was. I'm sure there would be some Indiianheads and silver there.

Think hard! That'd be great place to metal detect!

As near as I can remember it was on farm ground just across the highway from the garage in Rose Prairie, Ok.. the old highway going to Siloam Springs,Arkansas. There never was much there but the garage and a store and church. Maybe Pryor Creek Joe knows where it is. I graduated from Pryor Creek High in 60, but I don't know him. I live in Utah now.

Magnets will work on many projects. And yes our mind does wander. After reading your post, it got me to thinking about some of my old tootsie toys that I have dug. They are sitting in a can somewhere. Using hot glue gun I could easily glue a magnet on the bottom of them. Then with a little metal sheet mounted in rustic wood trim, I could easily display them. May have to take a break from my pen making & make me a display stand.

Nice idea Sataro, now that winter is here and ground is freezing might as well do other projects.

Listener, I guess I’ve got the advantage on you here in Central Texas. Heading down to Round Rock, TX on Saturday for a competition hunt. We are a long way off from freezing ground here in Texas. Temperature is supposed to be around 71 degree F on Saturday.

Man, I would love to get out more. Enjoy.
We don't have advantage here of colonial or cw relics like a lot of detectorist, but the bugs aren't as bad either. The ground here is what I call getting plastic cause of the clay stiffing up as the cold sets in. Now southern Utah is still in the 70's, maybe I need to take a trip south.
