Instant Rough Ground Lead Weights

Saw up some old lead water pipe into three or four inch lengths.

Strip the copper cores out of some 40 Amp flex and cut it up into eight inch lengths.

Bend the copper in two and turn the tag ends over to stop then pulling out, insert into the lead pipe and whack it with a lump hammer.

A great way to use up pipe that has loads of limescale and doesn't melt well.
