    You have to PAY tire shops for it these days. still cheaper than $2+ a large sinker at the shop.

    I make them , when I was installing fires , I saved my lead flashings up , had over 60 kilos in a pile . Caught a ginger kid scoping it out for his ginger dad down the road . . Gutted, cashed it up the next day as I new the thieving ginger pricks would have stolen it .

    No not really the lighter lights the bloody big lpg/oxy heating rose that turns a pile of lead into 10liters of molten lead in no time at all

    Yea I have in the past, just bought another mold, and looking at getting one for jig heads, before the next cook up,
    only do it once every few years, I have plenty of lead, but its harder to get hold of now,
