Default How-to-leadfill. (Lead or Lead-Free)

To continue the How-to's, I'll post this link of a cool video on How-to-Ledfill in a separate thread too.

Cool! I solder *a lot* for work, but nothing one that scale. Doesn't look to hard. Wonder if that was real lead or the lead free stuff, and if they should have been wearing a breather mask.

[/b][/quote]I was going to ask the same thing.

"...Lead particles and fumes are created through sanding, scraping or burning lead surfaces or welding and cutting lead or lead painted objects common in lead industry and bridge and building renovation work. Hobby activities that involve melting, burning, cutting or casting lead can also create respirable lead fumes and lead particles....

...Studies of workers in lead industries have found chronic overexposure to lead may result in damage to the kidneys, gastrointestinal tract, peripheral and central nervous systems, reproductive system and blood-forming organs...."

Lead is some scary stuff.

I know for the smaller stuff, we use hoods to suck up the flux vapors and lead particles. I guess it depends on the shop they used and if they did indeed use the lead free.

Yeap, it works.

My brother and I have started to learn how to solder and it acctually isn't that hard. Just about as easy as it seems in this video.

My brother is working on an 1964 Austin Mini.

Could be an idea to ad a link to this thread in the "Too lazy to search" sticky?

Pretty cool.

I'll stick with plastic filler though.
