I purchased a 5 pound block of lead at the local hardware store and cast it 
in a steel surgical tray on a camp stove. The tray had rounded edges in the 
corners and measured 6 x 4.5 x 1.5-inches. The resulting weight is about 
1.25-inches. This URL has a photo of the Lehman and you can see the 
resulting lead weight.

I know I should of asked here before heading to the vast World Wide Web of 
filth to find out how much lead weighs per cubic inch so I could make a 5 
pound weight for my Lehman -- but I didn't, and I also didn't find buried 
in the vast archives of the listserver either -- so for those that might 
want to know now or in the future---

12 cubic inches of lead weighs right at 5 pounds
