How about....

....Did I read in this forum that the non lead content in wheel weights is down to one to two pecent?

I got hold of a couple of ballast bars from Navy ships a while ago which I still use. I think I have about four of them left. They run from 25 to 40 pounds each. When I got them I was told they are pure but it is sometimes hard to know the definition of pure.

You have to be careful with metal yards as well. I found myself in need of pure tin some time ago and called the local scrap yards. I went to the only place which said they had tin. The guy tried to sell me what was essentially solder, passing it off as tin. It was probably 60 percent lead.
