Making of the Low Melting Alloy 1
Here is how I made the low melting alloy consisting of the following:
The melting point once these components are mixed together should be around 100-95 C. My lead already came as itself a 3% Antimony alloy, so my formula is different from the published 32% lead version with its melting point at 95 C.
So here is my wooden mold, bismuth, tin, and lead in their proper proportions, plus paraffin for use as flux.
The lead was from tire weights I find along the side of the road, the bismuth and tin are both sold as environmentally-friendly lead substitutes for fishing weights and such at sporting good places or Targets and Wal-Marts in the appropriate sections. Unfortunately those metals are a bit pricey.
