When melting lead in a pot over a propane burner is there any danger of inhaling lead fumes. Since lead melts at 327 degrees C and doesn't boil until 1525 degrees C does this mean there is a big safety window and that no lead will actually vaporize. Am I right in thinking that any smoke coming off the pot is other materials burning off such as tar on some flashing etc... and there is no danger of inhaling vaporized lead? Thanks for any advise.
