Each year I go to bass pro and buy all my equipment weights, hooks and swivels, etc. for the year or for a certain amout of time. Is it more exspensive to buy these items in bulk on line or would it not make much differance. Also I was thinking about buying one of the lead melting units at Bass Pro, the laddle that plugs in is under 50.00 the bigger melting unit is around 75.00 thought about getting one just didn't know if it was worth getting one. I live in an apartment at the time being so I'm kind of limited on what I can do however I do have a colman stove would these work with lets say a small cast iron skillet from Bass Pro in melting lead, I have aprox. 40-50 pounds of lead that I have found in the last year that I can melt.
