All of you guys caught up on the terminology of the corrugated sheet metal need to take a trip to a few scrap metal yards anything of a thin nature made of steel especially galvanized metal is very likely to be classed as tin when you sell it to them and the price will be the lowest on the bar of any of the metals you can sell. Crush up a ton of cans that had vegetables soups of other things in them and they are going to be called tin cans even though there is little to absolutely no tin in them.
when it iron the same thing thick steel sections whether truck frames or a cut up dozer blade it is going to be classed as heavy iron. Engine blocks truck transmissions and the likes will simply be called cast. haul in a bunch of lawnmower engines and don't remove every last particle of magnetic metal from them and that will be called breakage leave them whole and you may be told not to even bother unloading them or only receive 1/5 th the price of the lowest price they offer.
if the load is magnetic it is called scrap iron no matter what then it is broken down into the categories IE tin, light, heavy or cast.
Car fenders are called tin and I guarantee there is not an ounce of TIN in them.
