Hey! Anybody out there use 50/50 bar solder when making casting alloys? I know that 9 lbs. of wheelweights and 1 lbs of 50/50 equals Lyman #2 alloy. My question is, how much does a whole bar of 50/50 weigh? I mixed a 3 bars with 27 lbs of WW and realized that the bars probably weigh more than a pound! I don't have any more 50/50 and the hardware store is out of it. So until I get some more, I'm dead in the water!

I've got a couple bars of 37/63 (37% lead 63% tin) and each bar melts down to 2.5 lbs. Hope someone out there has some info. Thanks, Bill
