Items ranging from sledgehammers to a 100-ton press for bending steel were on the auction block Tuesday at the machine and fabrication shops at the former RG Steel plant. The auction, which continues through Friday, will allow the mill’s owners to sell off items they believe are non-essential to steelmaking. BDM Warren Steel Holdings, which bought the 101-year-old Pine Avenue mill out of bankruptcy in August for $17 million, agreed to keep the steelmaking part of the mill intact until about May 9 and to continue to look for a new operator.
