I went out and found a tire shop today and i got a 5 gallon bucket full of lead for $10. took it home, fired up the turkey fryer, set a cast iron frying pan i found in my camping stuff (thanks for the idea ken) and commenced to melting, cleaning and pouring. i heated up my molds, then started pouring, my first 5+ batches came out quick with no problems. after that i would have sinkers that would bust as they were impacting the wood that i was breaking them out on. i am curious as to if it had to do with my mold temp and it not being given enough time for the sinkers to harden before i would pop them out. i would switch to a different mold and i would have good sinkers then after a while the same thing. what do you all think? the lead was very clean.
