Disclaimer:

This video demonstrates the use of power tools, and sharp hand tools which have the potential to be dangerous if used incorrectly. We are not experts in the use of any of the tools demonstrated in this video. You must assume responsibility for your own safety, and for the safety of your child.

This video demonstrates the melting of lead on a barbeque. This was the most practical way of melting lead that we could think of. However, we make no claim that this is a safe practice. We state emphatically that your child should not directly handle the lead at any point in the construction of your cars. Weights--not requiring melting--can be purchased on the internet, and at hobbyist stores. You must assume responsibility for your safety, and for the safety of your child, regardless of the method you choose to set the weight of your car.
