Another Contest - We Have a Winner.

Postby Barnyard » Sun Mar 25, 2018 11:13 am

Are you ready for another Contest? Rick’s recent posts about his new wedges got me to thinking, so here goes.

This is a two question contest and the winner will receive one of my rare (new) Barnyard Bash Ball Caps.
Answers may require a bit of searching on the forum. This is done so many of the new members can get familiar with the forum features.

The first question is today. The second question will be posted tomorrow at a random time. You may guess once per day. The first person to correctly answer both questions will receive the prize.

Question One
How many complete sets of wedges (minus the connecting hardware) can Rick produce from the attached truckload of cans based on the following information?
• The average number of aluminum cans needed to equal a pound (according to my source)
• The number of cans Rick needs to make a set of wedges and
• The total number of cans in the bags on the back of my truck as seen in the attached photos (all cans are crushed)

I will post a copy of the weight slip once the contest ends.

This is the truck of cans

And here is the coveted prize.

152 cans per wedge. 76 wedges per pound, 16 ounces. 1500 cans in back of pickup.

Edit: Have a drawer full of ball caps. Won the previous contest. Don't really need another ball cap, but a contest is a contest. Gotta participate.
I have an excuse. CRS.

This is a pic of all the "dross" from the cans I've melted down so far. Amazing once you skim off this stuff how pure the aluminum looks.

29 sets

Its simple:
12 bags- 14lbs/bag= 168 lbs -times 31 cans per lb.= 5208, divided by 175 cans per set= 29

Edit, nuts, forgot to take out for the hardware...

32 cans per lb. 175 cans to make Ricks wedges after skimming impurities out. You got a lot of crushed cans in your truck. I would guess about 140 lbs worth. So after melting and skimming 70 lbs = 35 sets of wedges. I think, Jim

Wow this is taking a bit longer than Rick and I thought. I will say some of the guesses are way low while one is way high.

Second question will be posted later today.
