Introduction: How to Recycle Lead to Make a Weight
From a filthy lead pipe I found in a skip. I melt it with the help of a blowtorch, always outdoors, since lead vapors are TOXIC. I pour it in a metal can and put a wire handle. I have made a weight. I paint it with two layers of enamel paint in order to avoid direct contact with the skin, since the lead is TOXIC.
