Hi Len, I went through a similar search recently. It depends upon
what thickness of sheet lead you want. If .062" thick will serve your
requirements check indusrial supply firms in your area's Yellow Pages.
when I did that in the Detroit area I found it but only in large
quantities. I determined that one of the prime users of sheet lead are
firms which make X-ray shielding. Contacted one of them and was able
to get a couple of about 1 ft. sq. sheets for $10. If you need .031"
thick material I think the best source is McMaster-Carr. Online
they're <www.mcmaster.com> When you access them search for sheet
lead. A piece 12" x 12" x .031" was a bit over $12 plus shipping.
