Default Re: Where to find lead sheets cheap

A quick caution on lead, either breathing it in when melting or soldering it or absorbing it through the skin. It is damaging to the nervous system as in lead poisoning as in lead paint children sometimes ingest. Bad stuff. I know. I had a stained glass shop years ago and worked with it every day for hours. If you melt it, do it outside, if you handle it wash your hands afterward. A stained glass shop would have scrap and also new lead cames (H shaped channels for holding the lead) in different widths. Could buy what you need and not have to melt it.
