    I don't see where you ever got an answer. If you did, I'm sorry to have missed it. You can get both at Walmart and probably any other bigger discount store. I recently ran out of ArmorAll Wash and Wax and not wanting to make a trip to Walmart...

    Thats a unique idea but I'm not sure how well it will work. But, thinking "outside of the box" has been the way a lot of things have evolved!

    Since you know the composition of both I would keep them separate from each other. For things like tin, solder and pewter I use the 2 small cavities in a Lee ingot mold. You can buy one for about $12. As far as the end use goes, solder is great...

    I would have to keep one of those ingots as a conservation piece! They are pretty much a thing of the past. Working with lead covered cable, either electrical of communication, is pretty much a lost art.

    This is true but I usually send BNE more than one sample to test so it only cost me another pound of lead to know. The last batch of solder that I melted was a full 5 gallon bucket of mixed rolls of solder, some of them old enough to be on metal...

    I'm another that has found wheel weights to work well for what I shoot. As suggested, you can buy wheel weight ingots in our swapping and selling section. If I were going to buy new alloy I would look at something like 96-2-2 or 94-3-3. There is...

    When I get unmarked solder or older rolls of solder that I can't read the label on I melt it all together, flux and stir it well, pour it into ingots and send a sample off for analysis. The last batch that I did ended up 51% tin and 49% lead. I...

    With that many weights to melt I would say that its time to get to cut off a propane tank for a melting pot and buy a nice ladle and skimmer.
