I think, unless he got rid of all of it, Andrew Linn had a pile of lead. I know he offered it up a bit ago. Maybe he still has iit.

Earl tried a recycler in Eugene, but they would only sell lead to a licensed business.

Hi, Earl ,,, try calling the several recyclers in the valley as well. Tire stores might also be a source, I would call the offices of I 5 tires, or your local tire store, then might offer to pick up and pay for the lead wheel weights, as a one time need, or ask for their pick up source if they have one.
