My usual scrap yards are out and I’m having a hard time finding clean lead on Long Island. Anyone have recommendations? I’ve called 15+ scrap yards on LI and none have. Thanks

Then you are forced to buy wheel weights from tire shops...

Yup.   Wheel weights work.  I do small batches and do it outside with a breeze, preferably.  I also pick up all of the lead I see laying around.  Everything from bank sinkers to split shot in wads of line.  Helps clean up and adds up quickly if you do a lot of fishing.

any Roofing Supplier, ask for lead flashing. wheel weights are not pure lead.
