Thanks for the info. Yeah, I wouldn't be counting 30,000 pieces either :wacko:

I just start the conversation - someone else has to question them.

Thanks Col... Would that mean one gallon needs close to 2000?
Oh, and I'm guessing it's been tried before, but in the interests of economy & diy'ing, would it work to cast lead rod 1/2" diameter & cut it into smaller 1/2" length rods? Just thinking it would be easier to cast rod than to cast balls :-)

ya doesnt take long n they will be round

The thread that I remember from Dagabu about BB's accident:


        Hi PeteyPyro,

                              I've gone through the incidence of BB with the thread you shared. You're repeatedly asking to use PPE. 

                            BTW, what is PPE(I'm a newbie).  I've just ordered for a ball mill & have no problem to collect led balls.

PPE is "personal protective equipment". It is a term used when the exact level of protection is different based on situation.


Things that may be referred to as PPE include full firefighter suits, down to latex/nitrile gloves and everything in between.

I keep my PPE ready to wear, on the chair in front of my shed. I can't get to my pyro gear without being 'confronted' by it first. I can't accidentally forget it. I'm an intact old pyro, and want to stay intact and get even older. Please faithfully wear appropriate PPE.
Pyrotechnician. It's not an ocupation. It's a diagnosis. Please WEAR YOUR PPE!!!
