Oh, fun
« on: November 24, 2021, 11:33:01 PM »
Can't complain, but a buddy dropped off a box full of wheel weights. Now to comb through them and see how many zinc and pure lead there are. The roommate asked how I am going to take care of them, and I said we need to buy a turkey fryer!

That does sound like fun. Out of curiosity, how do you tell the difference between the two?

Sound, lead make a dull thud, zinc rings a bit. Some times you can tell by how there marked.

Used a quick pinch with diagonal pliers: zinc hard, Lead soft and would "cut". The easier to cut the higher the lead content.
