    My brother in law called me today asking if i wanted some lead for making weights . I said sure , he then told me they was 20 pound lead balls :crazy: that a guy was giving them to him if he wanted them just to get them out of garage , he said that he has 83 of these and asked how many i wanted . so i now have 83 lead balls little bigger then softballs 20 pounds each .

    I now wonder what the heck the guy was doing with these things.

    I have enough weight to make sinkers for a life time .

    Probably used up shielding from the nuclear plant :crazy: Just kidding, but people are selling bulk lead on Ebay for about one dollar a pound, so that sounds like a great find to me.
