I'm from easteren Pa. Philly area. We've always called scrap copper fergie. I was wondering if that's what it's called everywhere or if it's local slang. If you feel like it,tell where your from and what you call scrap copper.
I don't know. I've been in the field since 81 and it's always been called fergie around here. We make up our own stories why. But nobody know's. I'm talking about every electircian I've ever met in Pa. and NJ. and Del. called it fergie. another funny word I came across. Riggers call blocks of wood they use while moving big stuff Dunidge. (Like done and bridge put together)
