Results of the melt down of about 60 pounds of wheel weights
As I said the other day, I came up with a bucket of wheel weights which I thought was somewhere around sixty pounds worth.
It was a 5 gallon bucket about 40% full.
I separated out the stick on weights and smelted them separately. Then smelted the clip on weights.
Came up with about 13 pounds from stick on weights which should be relatively pure.
About 40 pounds of clip on weights which shold be somewhere around 95%.
There was about 5 pounds of zinc weights which would not melt in my furnace (Lee production pot)
And there was about ten pounds of junk which included all of the steel clips, valve stems, cigarette buts and muck.
Took me about six hours to ge through the process.
