About the only guys still using lead are the Pebble Beach Concours de Elegance crowd..the rest of us mere mortals have gone over to the dark side and are using duraglass and other filler products and we get the metal worked as well as we can before doing any filler work..

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..
