Make your own sinkers

Post by Ekaz3556 » Wed Jun 14, 2017 8:36 pm

Hey guys, just wondering if anybody has made their own sinkers or jig heads. I have been experimenting with sinkers but not seen any jig head moulds as yet. Has anybody got an old bottom pour smelter that they no longer use, or have any ideas where to get one in Australia as all my research points to the lee precision smelter but it mainly seems to come from the states.

Lee pro 4 looks to be a bottom pourer

Thanks guys, yes I have tried a ladle but also had the chance to try a lee 20lb bottom pour. There is no contest when making little sinkers. Bottom pour is miles more efficient and easier. Just looking to see where I can source one in Aus or better yet if someone has an old one they no longer use and want to sell. Would like to try jig heads but am yet to see a mould.

Go to Ebay and enter "jig head mould" - Plenty to be found.
