            Keeping in the same realm as most of my posts in this thread...

            Don't spend money and buy, spend time and learn.

              It's a threaded back-up flange for the big 6" tank fill. All the fittings will be sealed and backed up....the lightweight tanks will get the small 2" fills with 3" flanges
              flanges 003.JPGflanges 004.JPGflanges 005.JPG the thing on the 1/2 mandrel is the cut-out from the 6" flange....which will end up a 3" flange.That way I get 2 parts from 1 piece of stuff.

                    No ... one can recycle scraps. If you use them up you have no material left. For example that scrap above looks like a cup holder and base could get fabricated.

                    I build a house with this Icelandic gentleman Vigfus. When we were done the whole scrap pile would almost fill one standard garbage ben. Just rafter tails and hip cuts and blocks less than 6".

                              That is perfect for signage. Or if someone doesn’t get your point, give that them. You’ll then get your point across
