  • That's a good idea, and a clean installation, although molding and pouring lead is not easy or cheap, or fast, besides the gases and danger of molten metal if the mold(s) leak - for an amateur at least. I suppose for pouring concrete one needs a mixer, but that could be borrowed... --- In bolger@^$1, "Peter" wrote: > > > > My experience with iron/concrete ballast is that moist...
