I'm no chemist I'm afraid, so please do treat me in pure lamans terms haha.
My question; I want to melt some scrap lead to mould into fishing weights. I have been told just recently that the fumes from melting lead are very toxic and can cause brain damage. How concerned need I be in an outdoor environment, what kind of fumes are produced?
I have been told it can pretty easily be melted in a metal ladel over a simple gas burner or blowtorch.
