Scored! Another mailbox...really?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
With all the recent chitter chatter about members not finding all aluminum mailboxes, I went online and sure enough Gibraltar who I use and who supplies mailboxes to Home Depot, True Value, Ace Hardware,etc, discontinued their ALM11000 mailbox. On my way home I dropped by my local mom and pop Ace Hardware store, just for the heck of it and what did I find? Of course, if they had more than 1, but that was it. They checked their local warehouse and a big zero appeared.

Can't say I really need another one but with 4 smokers, there has been times...........yahoo.gif

I have an aluminum one for my mail. I guess I could just get a new one for the mail & use this one for the mod.

Just curious what you paid for the mailbox. I was able to find the same one on clearance for $16.37 and shipped to me was $25.18 total. I plan on doing the mailbox mod on my fridge conversion. Is this a good deal or should I keep looking?

I paid $20 + tax, so I'd say yes to what you found.

After 3 hours of digging, the cheapest I found was around $70 on Ebay.

 

You better make SURE it is the ALM1 1000, and not steel, if you want bare AL.

 

Not sure, but I think the painted Gibraltar's ( before being discontinued) were also maybe painted inside.

 

And, if it is either bare, or NOT painted inside AL, I want one also and need link please.              Marc

If yours is AL, and you got it recently, please post link.

 

Their original price was like $20 or less.         Marc

Marc, I'm 99% sure it was all aluminum. I'll have to check for the link Monday on my work computer and let you know. They were on clerance so not sure how many they had left.

You need to be careful with internet ads for I found a couple indicating the part number  ALM11000, yet it they describe it as being 100% galvanize.   OMG!!  found the same one on Amazon for a

mere $149.00.

Yup, and also some on Ebay say "Aluminum" in the heading, but in text Galvanized.     Marc

We did live by Fleet/Farm, Menards, all the good stuff.

 

Now, rural Tx, nothing here.

 

But trees.

 

We have trees.

 

We DEFINATELY have trees.

 

Definately trees.

TSC did just move in 30 miles away, so that will help a bit.
