I drive down to Crisfield, Md every year to visit family for Thanksgiving, and stop at Eddie Heath's to load the truck with wire, zinc, rope ect. Kind of a tradition, been doing it for over 15 years. Anyway, last fall he told me that zinc was going sky high. I bought 20 boxes @ $75.00 ea. Went back in February, price was up $100.00 cash. A friend went down there a month ago and paid $185.00 a box. Un-real. What's everyone else paying?

They come with a wire through them and you twist the wire around the wire of the pot to connect it it will give it self up instead of the pot wire because it is a softer metal

Due to the increase in the price of zinc, it now costs the mint 1.2 cents to make a penny.
