Or buy one from the uk.
I purchased two of the adjusti brand ones .
I have used a few repuatble companys like veals / rutherfordsangling and gerrys of morecambe they all have a fair number of styles.
The gemini mould is a awesome bit of gear BUT it can get a bit pricey as the gemini head units must be used .
The ron thompson moulds are to be avoided rough and leaky ….
Also read all you can find about working with molten lead and pay full attention to all the safety warnings molten lead is bloody dangerous.26/12/2009 at 6:23 am #14421
the Gemini i dont want, you have to buy half the sinker so it keeps the middle man in the loop
will look for these other types
Thanks for advice about molten lead .
i worked 25yrs in aluminiun smelter so have some small insight to how molten metal behaves
been burnt several times too .HURTS .dont want that.
thanks again Bob26/12/2009 at 7:50 am #14422

I have two of these ones . You do need to buy the beads for them as well but they work well

theses two use small rollers or you can leave them off.
Whenever people ask about making sinkers I always put in the standard molten lead warning.27/12/2009 at 9:56 am #14438
will try these links
very wise with the standard molten lead advice

nothing to do with moulds but a question in regards to the sinkers, when using a break out at the likes of amberley beach do you still use the spikes to grip or can it not grip in the stones?? Cheers02/10/2010 at 3:34 am #16098
Breakouts should work anywhere. Just cast out, let it get to the bottom then wind slowly untill it grips onto something.02/10/2010 at 3:39 am #16099

I prefer the ones with a bit thicker wires which gives a stronger grip. There’s a guy that sells them for a good price on trademe even bigger 7 and 8 oz breakouts for when it’s really really rough just gotta ask for the thick wires when you buy them.
