I read you loud and clear Dave. I have checked on it and there are no restrictions on cullet lead or no lead. I had my melting dept check on it. Besides most of the lead is burned out of the cullet. When we remelt it in the tank we have to add the lead oxcide just as if we were adding clear batch. Our cullet ratio is 69% right now. I will do a test melt and if I see the tell tail yellow orange color of lead I'll blow some stemware and dump the rest and refill with a new batch or cullet melt. I really don't think I'll have any problem with it though. My biggest worry is the effects it could have on my elements.
