I have a lead melter and lead, I was wondering if there is anyone in the Holland/Grand Haven area that has an egg sinker mold. I was looking for a 6oz mold. I rigging some of my small water decoys texas rig style. I am willing to make someone some weights free of charge for the use of the mold. Thanks

You can use a mini muffin tin from any discount store then drill a hole in the weight. I also use a regular cup cake tin for heavy weights.

Thanks, I usually use a soup ladle but its hard to get the correct amount of lead on each pour. I found some on ebay but I have all the lead I need.

and push a spade drill bit into it upside down. twist a couple of times. fill with lead and when it cools pull out the weight and drill a small hole in the skinny end. it will look like a piston valve. works great!
