    Lemme guess, Sinkershop Sinker Molds? I made that mistake, too. I'm much happier with the Do-it molds. Happy (belated) Birthday!

    yep, it sounded like the best deal at the time for around $40 for 4 sizes verses $40 for one size. i mean it does work and i think it would work alot better if i could get my lead hotter, but my hotplate i use has trouble getting and keeping the lead as hot as it needs to be to get the lead out of the ladle and in to the mold before it cools and closes the pour hole. maybe some day ill off load it cheap and get the good stuff.

    I have the same problem pouring 8 oz bank sinkers. I have a Lee heater, I think I am going to buy me a cast iron, and use my turkey fryer to start pouring the bigger sinkers, I think I can get the lead hotter that way. I have the cast iron dipper and that helps.

    You guys are too ambitious for me. I don't have the time to mess with pouring my own sinkers. Good luck however and it sounds like you all got some good advice to offer. Thanks

    Get the mold hotter. I set the mold on top of the pot between pours.

    I got the 5-6-7-8 oz bank sinker mold, thinking the same - good deal for 4 sizes. Even with hot lead, the problem is that it fills in around the sinker eyes and runs out a little on the edges - lots of trimming and cleanup. And I miss having a wooden handle. The do-it sinkers come out perfect most ever time, although I do have to preheat the mold on the bigger (16oz) one to get a good pour.

    I'm still using the mold, it's just a pain.... Hey, anybody want to buy a bank sinker mold.. makes 5-6-7-8 oz sinkers :smile2:

    Well I solved the problem the lead needed to be hotter :smile2: i have a little propane tourch, i filled up my dipper and let it sit in the pot of lead while i took the propane tourch and heated up the lead in the dipper, pored it into the cold sinker shop 14oz mold, filled it up perfect first pour every pour in a cold mold. made no differance how hot the mold was witch mold i was using as long as the lead was HOT HOT HOT it worked perfect:smile2:

    Do-it molds are the best hands down.

    I have a split shot and a egg sinker mold I'm hopeing to replace with do-it molds someday.

    Wouldn't trade my Do-it walking sinker mold for anything.

    Anybody use do-it jig molds? Considering adding one of them to my lineup.
