Lead has many properties that make it one of the most useful metals on Earth. It is used for weights, bullets, pipes, and construction. It is also a good collector of elemental gold and silver.

Lead is a gray metal with a blue tint. The atomic number of lead is 82. This is the highest atomic number of any stable element.

Lead can form polyhedral structures. Lead is used as a pigment, in weights, and in batteries. Lead can absorb X-rays and gamma radiation. However, it is toxic in small amounts. In addition, it is not an effective conductor of electricity.

Lead has a low melting point. Depending on the temperature and the amount of heat applied, it can take anywhere from five to ten minutes to melt.

When lead is melted, it emits fumes, vaporizes, and sprays lead particles. To avoid this, you should wear thick leather gloves, a full face shield, and long sleeves. Also, it is advisable to stay out of direct contact with the opening of the mold.

To melt lead, you can use an electric melting pot. An electric pot usually costs $50-$100 USD. If you are a beginner, you may want to invest in a safe model. You should always wear an eye mask and a breathing mask while working with molten lead.

If you do not have an electric pot, you can also use a large cast iron skillet. You should never reuse lead from cast iron for food preparation.
