    I found it for $56, but figured I'd maybe see is anyone had one like this they are selling. I want one that I can t fit the molds under. Any info godd/bad on this one would also be good.

    Thanks

    Question if your lead is in big pieces how do you get it in that thing, by sawing it?

    Jack,

    That holds 20 pounds of lead! Thats one of the largest production typs ones. The style I've been using only holds 1 pound. THe lead is so soft you cut it in pieces junks, etc... then put them in there. There is a mold that allows you to melt the lead down to 1 pound bars, which is what I having comming.

    I am using a Lee production pot IV. It has been real easy to use. The one you are showing is the pro model and it looks sweet. I like the idea of having a mold guide, would make things easyer. The only down side is that it is hard to do molds that have the wires protruding from the mold.

    That would be nice to have. I made one using a soup can and a long bolt for the handle and melt the lead with a blow torch

    Yes, those are the no rolls, a wire pin is placed in the sinker. Thats okay I can always just pur those or use a laddle.
