Depends on how much 12 ft is.
I mean, if it's a 12ft pillar thats 12" in dia. then its got enough meat. I'd take it off your hands to make my homemade jet turbine heh...

Yes im surprised he did not ask for that either. I told him if he wants it for him and him only i will have to ship it. IF hes that happy with the description, then there should not be a problem.....right???

Want my shipping agent's details? That will throw him off. Heck, I work for Australia's largest shipping company - give him my email.

It's what I do, everyday. Goes into mobile phones, A/C units, window frames, and the most expensive production car on the planet. All from a few holes in the ground in Australia.

IF you have any bars of something machinable feel free to see that some if it accidently lands in the cargo of a plane destined for the US

Ha! Someone stole a log of billet last week. 178x850mm, I think. It wasn't from my side. What the heck do you do with a log like that? Oh, it's all 99.7%, so basically unalloyed, isn't it?

oh so billet is just reffering to a piece of stock. Never heard that term...
Tommorow i will borrow a digi cam and take pictures so i can do an ebay listing. I think even though they will take a part of the profit, its the safest thing

Never heard of billet? That's stock for machining or otherwise manipulating. The heat the long stuff until it's nearly molten, then stick it in an extrusion machine that turns it onto window frames. We also ship slabs the size of a mattress, don't know what that goes into.
