Great job! The biggest I pour is 3 oz not rolls, but that mold will get smoking hot in no time so I have to pour something else while it cools. It sure is fun making your own stuff. Get a paint removal disk in your cordless drill and use it to shape the jig heads. It's much faster than using a file.

I set the drill upright on the battery and leave it on while I shape them. Then it it a one hand operation so you can use the other hand for refreshments.

Nice! I remember my grandpa and me making sinkers when I was a kid with old wheel weights and his molds. Thanks for the memory. Is this the only kind you make?
