FYI, my wife is the one who pioneered the process for making your own lead strips. We pick up old lead weights from car tires any time we see they laying around. A good source is the parking lot at the tire store. On a hot day you can pry the old weights out of the asphalt.
I love it........ dont stop ..
The News, those who are trying to control what we think, do not want us to see. So good the British Gov. Banned it !!!
