On the Cover: When Thomas Cusworth, left, met Jeff Tangen, the two were rivals bidding on the same surplus junk. Now they have become friends who bid together, each salvaging a different piece of the same lot. Tangen takes the parts that make good art supplies while Cusworth takes the motors and machinery. What remains is sold online via eBay.
