[/b][/quote]I was going to ask the same thing.

"...Lead particles and fumes are created through sanding, scraping or burning lead surfaces or welding and cutting lead or lead painted objects common in lead industry and bridge and building renovation work. Hobby activities that involve melting, burning, cutting or casting lead can also create respirable lead fumes and lead particles....

...Studies of workers in lead industries have found chronic overexposure to lead may result in damage to the kidneys, gastrointestinal tract, peripheral and central nervous systems, reproductive system and blood-forming organs...."

Lead is some scary stuff.

I know for the smaller stuff, we use hoods to suck up the flux vapors and lead particles. I guess it depends on the shop they used and if they did indeed use the lead free.
