  • In this video I go out to my local shooting range and pick up some lead from the back stop. Once I get the lead home I show you the process that I use to make that lead into ingots. Ingots is an excellent way to store your lead. It also makes the lead easy to put into the furnace when your bullet casting because of the small size of the bars. Enjoy!

    Guys, take a deep breathe, [bad pun]. I ran a lead type foundry for 15 years, in a small 1,000 foot warehouse. My casters ran 8 hours a day but not every day and I got my blood checked every year for lead levels. There was never any itty bit of lead in my system. My lead was kept at a constant 700 degrees when casting. Here is the thing: do not BOIL lead, that will certainly ruin your health. And be very careful with the oxides [the whitish powdery stuff] which can be left behind when smelting lead. For this you should wear gloves and a mask when cleaning up the slag and leftovers. Don't eat after you have handled lead: wash your hands well first. Use common sense.

    Sir, I just want to ask and I don't mean any disrespect, but are you single? If i tried to do that in my kitchen sink, i'd be a victim of my own recaptured lead...

    Lead here in canada cost 0.60 cents per pound so just 1 extra hour at work at 15 $ hour would be equal to 25 pound of lead so doing it in 3 hours and washing lead water in to the septic system and air might not be best way

    you properly spent more on gas than got back from a processed sell of lead

    Why waste the time and water to wash the lead? the dirt will float in the molten lead and you wont risk cuts and lead in the public water system. the lead will melt faster if you get a puddle of molten lead started then add to it. To reduce the amount of dross add rosin to the mixture and it will reduce the oxidation of the surface exposed to the air

    Why not smelt the copper into ingots? The king of random shows how to make a metal foundry for cheap.

    You could just use a bucket with a bunch of holes in the bottom (or a colander) to rinse the lead rather than that painful process I just watched
