I love these old shoplights with the crazy huge reflectors.

More like crazy narrow fixture channel. The reflector looks less than a foot wide. Definitely one rusty son-of-a-gun!

I think that scrapping should be banned, as this is one of the most environment unfreiendly action that humens can done.
The subsidization of EEI=A appliances project of the Israeli DoE, is based mainly on scrapping good old appliances.

Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I lives in Israel, which is a 230V, 50hz country.

Scrapping actually helps the environment because the materials can be made into new stuff. Scrapping is recycling! It's the people who steal metal stuff to scrap that are the issue. People cutting out sections of copper wire for the five cents thet get for it at the scrap yard.

If we're on the scrapyard topic, I have a story that boils my blood. Just yesterday, I passed by Recycle USA of Pinson, Al, and I saw my NUMBER ONE DREAM CAR sitting out. A 1958 Oldsmobile I LOVE that car. So I made some racket about it. I told my mom and grandparents about it. So today, my mom and I go look at it, and come to find out, it's NOT FOR SALE. It's JUST FOR LOOKS. They refused to sell it! They just wanted it to sit there and rot! I was SO MAD.

Yeah there's a construction company with a pair of metal street light poles, complete with the street light, that have been sitting in their material yard for over a decade and they won't sell the lights. They'll only sell both poles together for $1500. They refused to sell just the fixtures. Some people might say that $750 each isn't bad for a aluminum light pole with a 250W HPS street light but we're talking about a used pole and fixture. And I only want the lights! Oh well, if they're still there in another 10-15 years I might be able to take the poles if I get my own house. Maybe by then they'll reduce their price. TBH, i think $750 is crazy even for both! I'd pay $300 max for the both of them.

Remainds me what Carmel hospital doing with old lamps that aren't in use. They don't sell them, and they don't allows anyone to collect them. They just throws them, when they don't need them.

My best scrapyard story would be the brand new Blaze King woodstove sitting in the metal yard in Sitka, AK. That they couldn't let me take or buy! (Liability, etc.). I would've given them like 200 bucks for it LOL.

Just outside of the scrapyard (Which is in a giant concrete tank left over from when the place was a pulp mill in the 70s-90s) there was a pretty rough looking "Deuce and a half" sitting there, with some weird crane configuration or something. I wish I'd photographed it. I hope it wasn't/isn't destined for scrap. I should have inquired about it, I've been wanting one for awhile.

Ew. Looks like someone dialed a #2 on it.
