    Kathie, do you have any soft lead (stick-ons, pipe, flashing) available? I'll take some if available.

    *Bump* and update

    Can't believe that summer is almost over.

    I had hoped by this time, my ww situation would be in better shape - but it is not.

    Right now, the one supplier who I thought would be always there for me, is not! It doesn't matter that I bought most of my tires for up to 4 vehicles from him, since he opened his place back in the 80's. My last pickup was over the top with all the junk that was placed in the buckets and not that it was a big deal, it just got to me. He did say the new person that did this was fired the previous day. But sometimes one needs to speak up (and I did so, but in a nice manner: would you pay to buy someone's garbage? Answer: no). There was a heavy iron tool in the bucket too, that I believe is used to break the bead of tire from rim. He said that is mine (well, technically it was mine after paying double the local price for scrap ww's). I wanted to weigh it in order to be fair in regard to the money... even though we are talking about a dollar. He took $2 out of the till and gave it to me, short of throwing it at me! There was a lot of junk in the buckets, including stuff that should have been put in recycle bins and the garbage can. I failed as a business person (I probably should have shrugged it off) but as a human, I reacted because I am being MORE than fair to my clients in paying top dollar and just want some respect.

    In the old days, I could just drop by and see how the buckets were doing. Or, if I needed some ww's, he was very accommodating to help me out. I did stop by 2 times since the last pickup - and 2nd time I got the hint: we will call you. That was about 2 months ago.

    Right now, I have 2 sources for range lead. I am not seeking new clients for wheel weight lead. There is more and more steel, zinc, plastic, and some kind of composite sponge like material (for stickons). Lead ww's for new applications has not yet been banned in Connecticut (to my knowledge); I think Mass. stopped allowing shops to use lead ww's a couple of years ago.

    I've had a good run since 2007 !!! I want to thank everyone who has bought my wares over the years! So for now, it is lights out for WW ingots - but range lead is still available.

    At some point, my fire sale may come to an end, and price may go from $1.00 a pound to $1.04 (shipping extra with probably a small discount to round the pennies off). But for now, I will still hold to $1.00 per pound, with discount on postage.

    Three (3) 25+lb boxes of clipon ingots for sale

    Update #1 as of 11/24/2018 : The 3 boxes have been spoken for: Sghart3587, dsh1106, and JPinMI . Will post again when I get the 2nd batch of boxes packed up. Thank you.



    I have three (3) 25+lb boxes of clipon ingots for sale. More forthcoming.

    Limit: one (1) 25+lb box per customer
    Price: $1.25 per pound x 25 = $31.25 + 7.20 (shipping) = $38.45

    First come, first served. The lead is will be yours to purchase if you are one of the first 3 people to respond to this post.

    No waiting lists will be retained. I will update this thread when I have more clipon ingots packaged up.

    The reason for the limit is to give more people a chance to obtain clipon lead, especially now that the availability is getting more scarce. I don't believe in hoarding.

    Thank you.

    PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING:

    As of 11/24/2018, I am reporting the results of having sorted and processed 1196 pounds of wheel weights fetched approximately 3 weeks ago.

    30% lead (280 lbs clipon ingots, 80.2 lbs stickons straight off the rim) ** In January of 2018, the yield in lead ingots was 48% **
    61% steel (727.1 lbs)
    8% zinc (95.1 lbs)
    1% junk (13.6 lbs).

    So as you can see, lead wheel weights are becoming more scarce... eventually in my area, there will be no more. I do have the opportunity to buy wheel weights from 2 scrap yards, but at a high price; due to the scarcity, and my expenses (notably rent), I have raised my prices. For those of you who have dealt with me over the years, I have charged a very fair price. Unfortunately, I am unable to sustain my business without raising my prices. For the time being, range lead will remain at $1.05 a pound, but I may not be able to hold to that forever.
