White Metal Composition?????

2839 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Bob Starr
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.

Ummmmmmmmnnn Why subject yourself to more toxic metals trying to make white metal? Just do your castings out of the lead itself, or get some lead free metal. You can pick up small ingots of lead free stuff at plumbing supply stores
