Dr Poe, thanks for the previous advice regarding reducing silver,sulphur during lead alloy, what about nickel how do i reduce it.
thanks in advance.
Dumi, you might be screwing up! 1st of all reducing nickel from these is beyond profit. 2nd if you are working the nickel babbitt bars from the Japanese 2nd world war, a lot of them are not what they seem. They are massive amounts of iridium with 7 to 8% gold and are bound together with indium to have the appearance of being lead all for the purpose of smuggling iridium to Japan. Do a specific gravity test: lead is 11.3, lead with silver, nickel etc. is even less. If they read 12 or higher they are smuggler's iridium and gold.
