Your still wiping joints & making lead shower pans?
Yes I do about 6 pans a year using 4PSF sheetlead. The lead wiping is required because several of my town house accounts have inlaid wood ceinings and the existing 100+ year old piping is lead waste lines.
Rather then destroy the marble floors or wood ceilings we lead wipe flemco #1 warrenteed solder after removing the corroded section, rather then replacing everything up to the cast Iron stack.
Even at $225 per hr or any part there of it is still cheaper then destroying this work of art wood work.
The lead pans are custom made with solderless seams (corners) and last over 50 years.
