    Post The Process- from raw lead to bucktails & sinkers

    I hope I can post the photo's. Starts with raw lead that is melted and put in a muffin pan to make it fit the Lee melting pot. During this process the dirt is skimmed off the top before the pour into the muffin tins.
    Next is melting the muffin pan ingots into sinkers or jig heads. Clean off the excess lead from the pour. At this point the sinkers are ready. On to the jig heads, powder paint, then ready to tie on the hair. Finally ready to fish.

    I add candle wax every so often to the melter and stir and scrape the sides and bottom to help get the crap to the top and skim off with an old spoon. Usually a piece about 3/8 inch square. Well tomorrow we see what they do.
