Guys as you use my molds I may ask for you to share some of your sinkers with me:embarassed:!

    Top if you have lost that many it must have been a rat. Change to rat traps, or an alarm system.:smile2:

    Seems to me a rotten snake that wont replace what he takes, or do the things he says he will do. Size 12 comes to mind with some swiftness to it. Sometimes being kind hearted will get you took advantage of Overtime. boundries and limits, thats how i operate. :wink: Sorry for your trouble Top, Sounds like its time for "Tough Love" :smile2:

    Darn Top, seems to me that if you didn't loose so many, you wouldn't need so many. Now, how can you blame your kids on that?

    Gee, sorry to hear about that! Sounds like you need to set some traps to make them pay for it.

    Speaking of making your own, where can a person find lead to melt into sinkers?

    only problem with most tire shops, they take em to the recycle and get good money for em. Ive asked nearly all of em I can find and that was thier answer. I usually have to buy my lead in bulk from the recycle center, usually in rolled up sheets from Xray rooms. Yea, Lead weights are expensive, having a pot and molds is a plus for a fisherman, Ive thought about makin weights and sellin to the bait stores, but it doesnt come out very profitable until you get into the "thousands made".
