I bought a sheet of lead from McMaster-Carr many years ago, plus a set of punches.

Once in a while I get bored and punch out a dozen or so circular disks. They are about half the weight of the old Estes lead weights.

The sheet lives on the floor of my storage closet. I handle it with gloves and wash my hands after I'm done punching out the weight.
