This morning, I thought I stop by the local tire shop and get some WW. He's dropped his price to $.30/lb. This might sound high, but he fills my bucket by hand, sorting out most of the zinc, iron and non lead weights. 55# for $20, and no razor blades, valve stems, cigrarette butts, chaws, etc in the bucket. I finished going through the bucket an hour ago with the nippers. Only about 5 weights non lead weights slipped through (which is why I try to cut each strip with the nipper). Culled out one Zn and 4 Fe weights. Not too bad. I heard of people buying the bucket of WW from the shop; then finding all sorts of non castable material included. Free would be nice; but for 30 cents, getting good material, I can live with it. I did get mostly stickon, with some clipon included. Turns out if the clipon is in good shape, it gets reused. We might be seeing fewer and fewer clipons in the future. Going to have to start looking for a good source of Tin and Antimony to get the alloy a bit harder. Strangely, he said he's selling a fair amount of new WW as well. Turns our people are using the new stickon weights to tune/balance their hunting rifles. I didn't get the price of the new stuff (stickon or clipon); but it would sure make the smelting process cleaner. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
