found one !! Please delete post


I am wanting to buy a used electric melting pot for lead. Prefer the kind that pours from the bottom and not the hand held. However, will consider both types. Must be willing to send to Alabama. If you have such a devise in good condition, please let me know your price. Thanks in advance.

You want the Lee pot. They could be found for under 50 bucks. I picked one up at a swap meet for 30. Good luck pouring your own. It's very satisfying catching fish on your own leadheads.

Thanks. I thought I would give it a try. My Grandsons sure go through a lot of jigs on the brush piles.

Do yourself a favor and get an RCBS Pro Melt. You will be much happier in the long run.

Randy, I don't have one to sell but let me tell you what I use. I have a Hilts pot that has a heating coil in the pot and you do pour it by hand. If you are not pouring to sell this is all you need and I found it a lot cheaper. When pouring you spend more time loading your mold with hooks than you do pouring.
The actual pouring of the lead only takes about 30 seconds. It takes a lot longer to put hooks in a hot mold than that and the mold has to be hot or you get heads that are not complete or they are wrinkled. I pour heads for myself and 3 other guys and I have no problem keeping up with their jig losses.

I have two Lee bottom pour pots that were used for melting plastics that I'll sell. They need the melted plastic cleaned out of them, but they'll work fine. I'll mail you both of them for $50 TYD.

I saw a starter do-it mold kit at barlowes tackle shop online. They might have it in store too. It comes with one sinker mold, a dvd, a ladle, and a 5lb melting pot...all for $35. Worth checking out.

I called Barlow's and the starter kit is not electric. Would have been a great deal if it were electric. Still looking------

Thanks for checking. I'm a newbie to melting lead too. I might go purchase Lee's 4 lb electric melting pot there for around $40. I heard Lee's has a good warranty.
