I have 1/2 way decided to try to make some jigs this winter instead of sitting around watching TV. I was wondering if you guys have any do's or do nots when it comes to buying the melting pot and the molds. I have looked around online and I know I want a pot that has the lever to pour the lead out the bottom. Online I have found these and they all seem about the same price, so does anyone have a brand they would recomend or one not to get? Same with the molds, ive found 100s of suppliers just looking for someone I can trust has good quality. Does anyone sell these locally (NE ohio) I checked wall mart and nothing, havent made it to dicks or cabelis yet. Also do you guys recomend the powder paint, that seems to be the "how to" on the net. I didn't know if anyone had experminted with airbrush or any other techniques or if it was a no brainer, powder paint. tks for the reads/replies in advance. When I winterised the boat the GF made a comment on all the extra shopping $ she will have because im done fishing for the year. So I must prove her wrong and blow some cash on "winter fishing supplies" .
