    Good deal, nice sinkers! Always good when you can put a little of yourself into your hobby...... who knows, maybe you'll progress even further and come out with your own line of catfishin' reels:wink:

    Wish I would find 50 pounds around here. Spent a bit of today looking for scrap lead. None of the scrap yards around here sell it. Guess my next step is look for a plumbing supply strore. Sure won't pay BPS prices!

    Do you ever go to any of the small tire shops around your house? That's where we get ours, we pay $5.00 a 5 gallon bucket full of used wheel weights, and that's alot of sinkers!!! Oh and Toby good job on the sinkers they look good, and sorry I did'nt mean to hijack your thread!:eek:oooh:

    Try the tire shops, especially the tire spot where you get your tires. Generally they have a couple five gallon buckets of old weights setting around, the price of scrap lead sucks so most of the time they will give it to you or sell a bucket for about ten dollars. Pretty cheap sinkers as a five gallon bucket of lead weighs at least a hundred pounds.

    look around for old cast nets that people have tourn holes in and take the weights from those....
