    I just use a fruit tin, 800 gram size. Push the top in to make a pouring spout and again at about 90 degrees to form something the pliers can hang onto for the pouring. Cheap as.

    Are you after an electric one or the basic shove in the fire ladle?
    Which is worse, ignorance or apathy...I don't know and don't care.

    Me and my mate plugger use to use a normal old cooking pot you would find in the cuboard. Used to melt the lead in it on his mothers stove. Used to make a whole bunch of sinkers this way. Learnt two things. Make sure all the windows are open while doing it. And don't let your mother catch you in the process.

    Bring a 20 pound melting pot in from the USA. Visit Titan Reloding. It's very good!! Just make sure you get the 220v pot.

    Yep I've got a Lee and it works well, use an LPG burner on a 9 kg gas bottle with a cast iron pot for bigger melts and a Lee or a cast irn gem cookie tray for ingots.
    Boom, cough,cough,cough
