Stainless Steel Tubing.  3/16" stainless tubing.  This is unused, surplus inventory.  Location: Denver   Click Here for Pricing>>

Before:  This tubing came from a laparoscopic surgery instrument manufacturer.  They changed the specs on their tubing, so this inventory became obsolete.  As you can imagine, this tubing is super high quality!

After:  "We had an artist suggest making a sculpture out of your tubing.  I think at least two boxes but will need to have him do the math." - Doug  RE: Yeah, how about something like this art sculpture of Muhammad Ali.

Q:  Any other ideas for "repurposing" this stainless tubing?

Rubber Skeletons.  These are 36" x  25' long rolls of multiple ply rubber where  parts have been cut out.  These are pretty much like the steel skeletons we have but this is rubber and so it has different attributes like it is flexible and much longer per piece.  ORDER ONLINE>>

Q: How could these rubber skeletons be "repurposed"?  Email Ideas>>
repurposedFUNNY:  A Ph.D. from Ohio State University was leading a sustainability session that Damon attended a year or so ago about starting a byproduct synergy group.  Damon went up and introduced himself afterward and offered to help the group by trying to find "repurposes" for some of the waste streams.  He cut him short and said, "We don't like 'scavengers' like you in our groups."  Ah, the academic elites, you got to love them.
