Changed the battery in mrstrcubed's car yesterday, which caused me much and deep thought... Anyone ever tried reclaiming the lead from a car battery for casting? Seems it would be difficult cutting the case open to extract the plates, but other than that, what are the drawbacks? Someone suggested the lead "soaks up" the battery acid, but that sounds kinds hokey considering how dense lead is. Flushing with copious amounts of water to remove most of the sulfuric acid before starting to disassemble would be in order. Even tho shooting H2SO4 impregnated bullets sounds mildly amusing, I left the battery at the parts store for recycling. Did I just lose ~30 lb of boolits? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
