grey whistles

we're staying rather focused right now on this subject of alloys and other grey whistles, well admittadly obsessing. What's in 'em anyway ????

spelter — zinc with something else like copper — so it is an alloy
pewter — tin ( mostly ) with something else, like copper, antimony, silver and others, —  so it is an alloy
brittania — less tin and more copper or something else, — so it is an alloy
zinc — an element. Brass is made from it and copper. Sometimes called spelter.
antimony/lead — two metals mixed as an alloy
lead — and lastly ….

Lead is easy — lead !!!

just a few more notes to unconfuse us a little. Remember don't put those lead ones in your mouth 🙂
