Metal Man Tools now have two Australian made lead wiping kits available, yes for those that want to do it the way it was done in “the good old days”. The kit consists of four traditional 30/70 body solder lead sticks, the finest quality tinning paste, two Australian hardwood lead paddles, one flat and one rounded for smoothing the lead and one tub of specially formulated paddle wax to stop the lead sticking to the smoothing paddles. The Starter’s Kit also includes a double quantity of body solder lead, an adjustable file holder and a quality double sided file blade suitable for lead filing. All kit components are also available separately for those that already have some of the component materials. The kit also includes instructions on how to go about lead filling a panel.
