I had ordered up a 3lb chunk of #4 Babbit to use on a spinning wheel rebuilt (one bearing is original babbit the other is a Ryan M special carved bronze which rotates unexpectedly in the wrong direction) last week. Finally showed up in the mail box. Loml was sitting in the seat next to me and as I reached into the mailbox and (knowing what to expect) casually pulled out the very small box (its 87.5% lead so size != weight) and handed to her. With a shocked look after almost dropping it she turned to me and said "what the **&&& is that LEAD!?" to wit I replied "Yes Yes it is"
