I wish to Cast a few Whitemetal Bogies for a couple of Coaches
and Parcel Vans I`m building,
Can anyone give me the Composition of Whitemetal please,
I have about 2 Kilo`s of Lead laying around and figured
on a Homemade Mix to provide some Whitemetal.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Some of the metals that make up a white metal alloy are antimony, tin, lead, cadmium, bismuth, and zinc.

Depending on the desired charistics of the final product you can vary the mix on the alloy. Google "whitemetal" and look at the Wikipedia, it'll give you a good rundown on the stuff.
