What is white metal?

I realize that 'white metal' is probably a loose term, and there is not one answer to this question, but I would like to cast in metal, and I'm hoping that there is an easy way to make solder stronger by adding something to it. I remember reading something last year about adding something, but could not find it in the archives. Any ideas?

Penney's are readily of a local source of zinc. Any penny minted after 1982 is almost all zinc. I used to use them for metal casting all the time. Good luck.
