Looking to get my hands on some old, worn-out or non-functional picks and pitons. Wanted for an artsy thank you gift to a climbing friend. Help a brother out and get rid of some of your clutter at the same time. Am happy to pay shipping + a couple bucks, if wanted.

The idea I have is to make a coat rack.

Another friend of mine is a welder, making custom fab decorative metal fixtures and etc for high-end homes and has offered to do the welding.

Any help with old pitons and retired metal gear would be appreciated.

Steel (any alloy) works best, I believe, but aluminum should also work. Appreciate any help!
