    My employer is switching vendors so I got to take home some left overs from our last vendor.

    I got 14 tin anode balls. Two inches in diameter. One pound each.

    Here's the alloy specs:

    Chemical Analysis

    Tin Sn 99.952%
    Antimony Sb 0.0121%
    Copper Cu 0.0017%
    Lead Pb 0.0195%
    Iron Fe 0.0023%
    Bismuth Bi 0.0016%
    Arsenic As 0.0017%
    Zinc Zn 0.0005%
    Aluminum Al 0.0008%
    Cadmium Cd 0.0001%
    Sulphur S 0.0001%
    Nickel Ni <5 ppm
    Cobalt Co <5 ppm
    Silver Ag <5 ppm


    At WW + 2% Tin, I'll need 700lbs of lead to make a nice alloy. Next stop: scrap yard!
