Guy at work said he was smelting led WWs and some bars when the pot "blew" and showered him in liquid lead.
Q1. Can wet led dumped into melted lead do this? I have heard of a Tinsel Fairy but don't know the exact reaction that implies.
Q2. Could it have more likely been a LIVE ROUND that he overlooked as he said he was picking them out of the same bucket as the one he was pulling lead from to go into the smelt pot.
My money is on #2, but would appreciate a description of the "Tinsel Fairy" for future reference please.
