Lead Suppliers

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me a reliable supplier of lead ingots on either e-bay or if you have ever used roto-metals. I was noticing they have pure lead nuggets. Wondering if anyone has every used these?

I have been using Roto-metals for several years now, top notch service and excellent pure clean lead. I believe if you order a certain weight you even get free shipping. The nice thing about Roto-metals, is you know what you are getting. Buying lead on e-bay can be a crap-shoot and if you get bad lead, you have to deal with shipping and returning it. Smalljaw67 buys lead from Roto-Metals as well and I'm sure he will post his take on them.

I use to get Bismuth from Roto Metals.  Its probably the best place on the net.

 

I would not do the ebay deal.  You might get stuck with wheel weight lead with a bunch of junk in it.

Just like Cadman and Seibert Outdoors, I too buy my lead from Rotometals, I get both pure lead and 3%-5% antimony added to make custom alloys. The price is good and you won't have any problems with it, and it can save you money as I know several people that have ruined their melting pots by using scrap lead and not knowing what was in it.

Thanks everyone for the replies. I just bought my pot and molds this week and didn't want to start out with a headache.

Have you ever used the lead nuggets? I am kinda confused after reading their page, there is this, Lead Mini Ingot Pure 99.9% ~ 1 Pound and then there is this one, Pure Soft Lead Metal 99.9% ~ 5 Pounds. I guess what I am asking is what is the difference?

Buy 5 pounds as the price is better. There is no difference as it is all pure, clean lead, the only difference is the size. The more you buy the cheaper it gets.

Junk lead is a pain to deal with unless you know what you are getting into.  To start order some clean lead from rotometals like suggested to keep the headaches down. I use a lot of lead that was given to me which is why I deal with the problems.
