I'm looking for a small quantity of white lead for a special application. It will most likely be found in ancient machine shops, being very popular until the mid nineteen hundreds.

Please advise if you have any ideas.

I have some white lead additive for paint around here somewhere. If this is what you need Ryland let me know and I will look for it.

The best stuff for cold forming a clevis in a one shot die. Also good for making huge single point threads. Then you use your trichlorethylene vapor degreaser to remove the sludge. The good ol days.

white lead?

An old timer I buy stuff from has boxes of "Calcimine", it's a dry powder that was used as paint back in the olden days,I couldn't figure out why the boxes were so heavy,they are white lead! If that is what you are looking for he has a bunch of it.
