Default Starting casting

My friend just gave me a Lyman lubrisizer 450 with the heater plate under it and a Lee 10lb pouring pot. It came with about 20lbs of lead. I ordered a 6 cavity 125gr RNFP 9mm mood. My question is where should I buy tin and antimony. Iím thinking of buying some range scrap lead off eBay since I donít see any in the reloading classified. Any other pointers are appreciated.

I get my tin from solder I get from work. 60/40 and 50/50 solder.
Antimony I get from linotype I buy on another forum (cast boolits).
I add solder and linotype to wheel weights to get the desired alloy.
I use a Cabintree tester to check hardness.

I believe Lyman and rcbs have lube. But it seems most people make there own.

If you are going to cast with some regularity, "CAST BOOLITS" is a forum you should get very familiar with.

I literally spent 2 years reading everything I could before I cast one bullet. Wealth of knowledge on that site.
