How is this offensive??

It's a lump of scrap copper with added materials, nothing offensive about it at all.

As Jason says, worth a punt for the scrap value.

(and if you are ashamed to be seen with it you can always cover it with a blanket LOL)

I think I'd be more embarassed to be seen with the Presley CD (which fortunately is not included in the sale).

Not yet another "Barn Find" how many barns are there in this country that are being cleared out Well if you live in Preston buy and collect then take it strait down the scrappy and make a few quid.
Agree with Fizzy it is an abortion. Imagine putting it on your club stand at a exhibition....... An insult to Elvis and I cannot stand him.

I am baffled by why this should offend anyone but not surprised at peoples willingness to slag off people.

Fizzy - I think you are easily offended! Pretty it 'aint but not offensive surely - it's only someones (probably and hopefully early) attempt at a boiler which is offered at below scrap rates - it seems that no one has been tempted so far. There are many things in the world that offend me but none of them reside in workshop scrap bins! ( I have often had things in my scrap bin that ANNOY me quite a lot!)

There is no such thing as scrap, it will all come in useful one day.

Gordon, I have been telling myself that for the last 30 years and that is why i have 4 sheds and a loft full of scrap. Don't think i will EVER use it all.

Cheers Derek.

Some people realy do have NO sense of humour! It has offended every rod and cone in my pretty little head! I did once make a right mess of a boiler...left it outside the garage and the goblins had taken it by morning #( although wifey thinks smackheads more likely culprits!).

I do not think i would want to be on the usefull end if it did get used for something, Gordon W.

I am in turmoil because my boiler has a minute - MINUTE leak at one of the tube ends in the smoke box, so if someone buys that they have to be -------------MAD.
