Smelting WW’s is out because of where I live. That leaves casting from ingots but I cant find a source for the lead. I would love to hear from members where they get their lead.. Your input is appreciated
+1 on the telco. I used to work for them and still have a couple of buddies who are in outside plant. When they pull down the very old lead sheathed cable, they manage to strip off some of the lead covering and set it aside for me. A little here, a little there and it adds up. Also try scrap yards that buy tel cable.
I don't cast my own but what about plumbing supply houses. I had some soil pipe replaced last year and he melted ingots right there in the basement to pore around the joints. I am guessing it is available to those plumbers.
