Although there are many styles, they all depend on the strong beating the weak and the slow falling to the quick. These are not related to the power that must be learned -- Taiji Classics

I was told that iron has lead in it. So I suspect that it may not be a good idea to use these balls if you have open cuts on your hands, as the lead could get into your blood and cause lead poisoning. Could somebody please tell me if I am right about this?

Iron is iron. not lead.
You should basically inject it to yourself to get poisoned.

Nope! Iron is just iron. Its an element. There are composites, like iron/nickle, and there may be iron/lead composites, but I don't know for sure. If you are curious, check out these links:

I have heard these called "gao ding" balls.
does that sound right to any of you?
I personally have always refered to them as "chinese balls" (ha ha, I heard that thought!)
they are great for limbering and strengthening the hands and when they have the little bells inside they sooth the senses and the repetitive motion is quite relaxing. They do contribute to greater finger dexterity also with practice.
to the best of my knowledge they are not connected in any way to Iron Palm Training.

No you can't use them instead of Dit Da Jow.
Those balls are more for strengthening the fingers and help with the energy flow in the hands.
The vibrating rings inside help the energy flow.
They are just another way of conditioning. They are great and can help calm or destress you. :)
