I have a block of lead that came with a few other tools from a hobby
jeweler that was selling all his tools. This block of lead came with
them and do any of you use lead to hammer one I worry the silver or
gold will get pieces of lead on them, small or tiny.
My understanding is lead will eat into the metal when heated.
Any suggestion? I live in Mexico and some things are hard to get,
like a pitch bowl.
Thank you for your help.
Sharron in Mexico waiting for the heat to arrive and the rains to
wash the dust away.
