    Is there a chart

    Is there a chart that will show you what to add to reach the hardness you want????
    Say you have alloy that is 15, and you want it 20.
    How much tin would you need to add to get there.
    I looked at some of the post about alloy charts, but don't know how to open them.
    I don't have win office. I use Open office.
    They just won't open.

    Put 'Lead alloy hardness chart' in a search engine.
    A bunch of them pop right up.
    Everyone can learn from their mistakes.
    However; it's less painful, and cheaper to learn from the mistakes of others.
