When we moved in to our little house on the Lake in the Upstate of South Carolina, the previous owner had left several surprises - almost all unwelcome.

One collection was some oddball chemicals, herbicides, cleaning supplies and some unknown liquids.  One particularly grimy item was a Swiffer Wet Jet.  After a failed attempt to rid ourselves of some semi-usable items on Craigslist, Sue suggested that the Swiffer pole might in fact be aluminum.

Sure enough, the magnet test failed - and we suddenly had 3 feet of prime aluminum stock for future jewelry projects.

It did take quite a bit of effort to saw off the upper plastic handle and disengage the aluminum pole from the base - but I think it will be worth it.  Once I had the pole freed from rest of the unit, I began to see the potential...and $$$ signs (well maybe only a couple).

So what will we make out of this treasure?  Stay tuned and check back soon!
