Weights for binding and repair

From: Lynn Jones <ljones>
Date: Wednesday, October 31, 1990
We are looking for a new fabricator for weights.   We have been buying
cast lead weights from the Fishee Co of Lockford CA, but they are so
slow and miserable to deal with that I want a new supplier.  We buy lead
blocks in 1, 2, 5, 13, and 26 pound units and cover them with Cotlin and
blotter; the shapes are convenient for handling, and on some of them we
put aluminum handles.   Any ideas other than scavenging for salvage
railroad ties, printing discarded type or other like stuff?   Thanks in
