On the other hand, if you're melting wheel weights, all the nasty crap that those things are crusted in ought to be worrisome - lord knows what kinds of carcinogens and toxic gasses are in that smoke.
Indeed. When I'm processing scrap lead I wear a 3M half face respirator with appropriate filters even outside. But when I'm just working with the little Lee 10LB pot I don't wear any respiratory protection, I just ensure good ventilation.
