Do any of you folks use a hot plate for melting their lead. I have been using the electric kitchen stove and I figured a hot plate would be a similar heat source. I have a great heavy fabricated stainless lead pot and ladle and I have been getting fine results , but I would like to move the operation out of the kitchen. I have considered buying a LEE electric lead pot , but I can't begin to afford it any time soon. Thanks in advance for any advice.
