Melting & Processing 500+ Pounds of Lead Into Ingots

For this video, Evan decided that I needed some help finishing up all that lead melting–so he volunteered to come help me finish processing my scrap into ingot form. I Had a lot of lead, and it took a lot of time to process it–but it was exciting and relaxing all at the same time. Evan had a new scrap lead processing setup that he wanted to test out, so we go over his setup briefly in the video. I used my typical setup with a Harbor Freight weed burner torch (man I love that thing!!!) Whether it’s roasting yellow jackets, melting lead in a dutch oven, or starting my coals for a BBQ–that Harbor Freight torch has really paid for itself with how much I’ve used it. I won’t spoil the video, so I will end my blabbering here, but will include links to the stuff we used in the video:
