|Where can one get lead bars cheap in NorCal? Lookin' to get about 400lbs. |
|Proflight Towers in Modesto sells coated 65lb bricks... I think for ~$35. |
|Tire Stores they will give lead for free.|
|I got old elevator weights from a scrap metal yard for 30 cents a lb. Nice bricks 60 lbs each. Check it out|
|Uh, Joe, where's Norcal? That near Norco?|
|NorCal = Northern California|
Last year Proflight sold their 65 lb coated new lead bars for about $50 each at the boat show. And, on the last day of the show they were blowing them out for $35 each - I got 6 - I guess they did not want to ship them back.
The same new lead uncoated can be purchased for $0.50/lb at ALCO in San Leandro (just south of the Oakland Airport off of 880).
Coating can be done by the novice but it costs and it is a lot of work. I recommend Proflight. They do a real nice job.
|The proflight bars - sweet! |
|i can get those same bars for .32 a pound and jsut coated them with dip it.|
|check recycling shops|
|What about so.cal. I can get lead Ingot bricks for $0.96 a lbs down here but $.50 a lbs. sounds better. Coat them with a do it yourself paint on bed liner like line-x? |
|I went to the show last Saturday and they wanted $60 for a 65lb bar. Maybe I should go there this Sunday.............|
|call a metal recycler and you can get them for about .30-.40 per pound.|
|Found a metal recycler.Clean lead ingots for .30 per pound.|

|chuck, It was trash. but I found a place in Riverside and I am going to go look at it next week. When I talked to them on the phone they said they have 2000lbs sheets of clean lead. I will let you know next week.|
