    The guy who bought the lead makes and sells fishing weights. Many were good enough to use as-is. The rest would get melted and recast into sinkers. I got $90 for the lot. Good deal for him, and I didn't have to try and sell a few ounces at a time to fishermen. Melting it down and making ingots didn't sound like it would be worthwhile to me. Looks like a lot of hot dangerous work with little extra benefit.

    Let us know how you like it. I have heard some very good stories, might not have been a bad idea.

    I probably have like 400 lbs now since 2000 - before that when i was a kid in the 70s - would save all the lead copper and brass and bring to junk yard to scrrap
    would get like $60-$70 bucks a year - helped pay for batteries and eventually gas
    then later late teens early 20s my father had musket ball molds and would melt all lead down and skim it to clean it up and use some and sell some - blackpowder is popular
    in new england - then we bought slat water sinker molds and melted it down and made new ones - used some and sold a bunch
    you can make a lot more re-purposing than for scrap - specially it you "clean" it - clean lead is worth more- my father has
    ingot molds and clean ingots are worth more - sportsman clubs will buy it usually. I have dive weight molds now too and have made my own weights
    from lead found - it does not take long to melt - does not take long to pour and does not take long to cool - if you do it the right time of the year
    molds dont cost much - smelters usually dont either - my father has an old one that works great - figure i will sit on what i got now
    until i retire and then melt it all - its extra money towards the hobby
    i have buckets of brass and copper i have done nothing with too - cant even guess what i got in that
