Journal Journal: lead free tin

I am not being the metallurgist, but is seeming this way: if lead free solder is in fact just being tin, then they would not be calling it leasd free soldier, but would call it ... tin. So chance is that some jolly clever chappie found some other way to make it, pehaps substituing some less toxic thing like arsenic or uranian in stead of nasty old lead.
