    People that receive heavy lead exposures are often given a chelating agent, which helps the lead to accumulate in the blood to be filtered out by the kidneys, where it is urinated out.

    Re: Starting First Boat what tool to buy

    You are probably going to need a block plane at some point, and the means to sharpen the blade.

    You will also need clamps.

    Some more details on the build would be helpful.
