Thinking of making my own leads as its supposed to be loads cheaper than buying them, even in bulk. Trouble is im confused on where is the cheapest to get some from and any ideas on the best way to go about making them.
All advice taken on board and i know a few of you make your own leads so help please.....
Thanks in advance. ;)

Checkbook and pen......again!!!!

Gav you can get scrap lead from any tat yard but it doesn`t come particulary cheap at the moment as with all scrap metals the price has rocketed .

One thing i will say is be extremely carefull as molten lead can be deadly and feels no pain a splash of lead can burn to the bone also any contact with water or moisture makes it explode so take the greatest of care .
I know its easy for me to say as i make a living out of selling leads but i would stick to buying them , there are several companies about who sell them at a reasonable price now .Nowhere near as cheap or as good as mine <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->
But seriously take the greatest of care it can be deadly .

Another reason why thinking of doing it mate. Got my Ebay shop started and even job lot of 20+ leads are still going for a fairly decent price.
Thanks for letting me know and warning about the dangers. ;)
