  1. I'm after some lead to pour jigs. Checked with a few of the tire shops for the wheel weights. It seems most of them are recycleing it themselves. I went to one smaller shop and they guy asked if I had a an EPA license, guess that makes some sense.

    You all know any tire places that give them out, or any other places I can go.

    Lots of good tackle there as well.
     
  5. When yard sale season begins start asking them if they have lead to sell.
    I get most of my lead from Yard Sales.
    Theres a lot of retired plumbers and custoteions (Janitors) out there.
    They generally have it out behind the garage in buckets wondering what to do with it all.
     
  6. If you have old nieghborhoods that are having streets and sewers redone people will also have there old water lines changed out.In my part of the country they are lead this is good soft lead and they will give it away free if you ask the right guy.
