Right now scrappers are paying 5-6 cents per pound for scrap steel.  They get up to 12-14 cents from the foundry, depending on how clean it is.

When they sell to the mill, they will certainly do better than that.

That is the thing many collector do not get - in order to win a scrapper over, you have to beat what *he* will get for the scrap, not what he will pay for it. And the problem is those numbers will often be a big mystery. It will vary greatly on a per mill, per deal, per phase of the moon basis.
