Thread: Little help on a lead find

    Little help on a lead find

    I was offered this roll of roof flashing.it is said to be a full roll with a couple of squares cut out. I haven't seen the roll in person but the guy selling it estimates between 800-1k lbs.the roll is said to be 7' long and 1/8" thick.
    I don't know the length rolled out maybe 12

    I can't get over to weigh it and was just wandering if his guess could be close.

    Sorry for the vague question, any help would be appreciated.

    Kevins750,

    Rule of thumb for lead is one inch sheet lead weighs sixty pounds per square foot. A roll of flashing, 7 foot X 12 foot X 1/8 inch should weigh in the neighborhood of 630 pounds.

    Thanks sir, he estimated the weight by his forklift rear wheels raising up when he picked it up.
