    WTB decoy weights, lead, bolts, scrap sinkers

    Looking for decoy weights, need quite a few but will take whatever people have. Only used on an irrigation pond so dont need to be to heavy. Name your price.

    Cheers

    Got an old pot and a gas cooker? That's all you need to melt it down. Use old tins as moulds, make a funny s bend out of wire and sink it in to the molten lead for something to tie to.

    have 50+ decoys but will probably tie them in lots of 3 so 15 odd weights would be good mate. how many you got?

    Find an old lead acid battery. remove the acid and rinse with lots of water.

    Remove the lead plates and fold each plate into the J weight shape you want.
