    I want to start making my own Sinkers, and found all the molds except for the "No-Roll" Slip Sinker type. Can someone please let me know where to find it?

    Any info would be appreciated.

    Thanks, I had looked on there, and apparently was in the wrong category or something and didn't see them, so went back and did a search this time and found what I was looking for.

    So, the things I need are

    1- The mold
    2- The Melting Pot
    3- The dipper (to scoop the lead out with)

    Is that correct?

    sent You a link Zakk via PM

    I would recomend a melting pot with a bottom pour spout much easier then a ladle

    one thing you need to do is make sure the mold is good and hot before you pour lead in and using a releasing agent such as wd 40 helps for the first couple a very light coat of it goes along ways and just remember when working with liquid metal it is very dangerous wear eye protection and a long sleeve denim shirt if possible i worked in a die cast factory for seven years and have had several very bad burns from liquid metal so be carefull jr.

    Thank you for the info, and I will definitely be very careful, I have some safety goggles I can wear, and some old long sleeve shirts.

    A cheap hot plate from wally world will do a great job of heating up your mold. got mine for under $10

    One word of caution though and some of these were not mentioned. Be very careful with liguids. It is a hard lesson to learn but Water, Pop and liquids are explosive when contacting melted lead. Eye protection is a must. Long sleeve shiirts are a very good Idea. Melt outside. stand up wind from the pot. Never breath vapors , wash hands after messing with lead and eating. Wow,,,I didnt think there were that many when I started to reply...sorry guys.

    If you have any problems with sticking of your completed weights or pull pins, I would recommend useing PAM cooking spray. This should make every weight come out of the mold more easily. Only spray when needed.:
