Historic Tools of North Castle

Lead Melting Pots (2)

To melt lead, the pieces of lead would be added to the melting pot.  It would be put on a heating source (maybe by the blacksmith).  Impurities would be skimmed from the top of the melted lead with the metal ladles - impurities would be greyish in color as opposed to the silvery color of melted lead.  The melted lead would be ladled into ingot molds or other molds depending on what is being made.
