Default Will Electrolysis Remove Lead?

If there is a chance that a CI pan has been used to melt lead will electrolysis remove the lead? I see no signs of lead and nothing to make me believe that the pan was ever used for that purpose.

No it won’t remove lead. Best thing to do is get a lead test kit at the hardware store and test it with that.

Electrolysis is going on in your car battery. It has lead plates inside. The acid and electrolysis action does not touch it. As mentioned, get a lead test kit. If the piece is contaminated I would consider it display only...and never sell it.
