I am now back home and can also make the difference between the pure lead shield and the additional copper shield test.
What can I use to additional to the copper and how many mm must this be?
Question Peter, as you´re in Germany too, where did you get your lead and the copper? (If you found any physical store)

Peter, the most common layered lead castles consist of lead, then lead-free pewter, and copper on the inside. I cannot help you with the optimum thickness of each. My constraints for a lead castle are weight (since I move mine around) and cost - both pewter and copper sheeting is a little expensive. Take a look at the Shielding section of the forum, there is some great information and lead castle designs there!

Hello Manuel,

the Pb and Cu are from a friend long time ago. So at this time I have no idea to get this material.
