Makin a Jig Mold from Triton Mike 6/4/2001 1:56:00 PM
Well I can't claim that this was my idea but Troy Jens showed this idea to me. First off get a little small tuperware container say maybe 1.5 inches tall and 4inches by 4 inches (not important on the size as long as it is 1.5 inches tall or taller). Fill it half way full with water putty and insert jig halfway down into the water putty. I would make the putty a little thick maybe a little bit thicker than the consitancy of pancake batter. Take a BIG Egg sinker or bullet weight and place it point down 45 degrees to the back of the head of the jig and sink it halfway under the water putty (be sure that the sinker is touching the back of the head of the jig to insure a smooth pour). This is going to be your pour hole for the lead. Also you will need a pin for the weedgaurd as well inserted on the front side of the head. Again sink it halfway into the putty. Secondly and very important part after the putty dries take some vaseline and coat the entire surface jig and entire flat surface of the dried water putty as when you pour the next layer of putty it will keep the 2 pieces seperated so you won't have to chisel the two pieces apart. After it dries pop out the mold and start pourin. YOu can probably get close to 150 jig heads before the putty starts getting brittle and crumbly. Works good for getting round plastic handpours too. I haven't tried bondo material for a mold on lead yet, but it may work as well. Be careful when dealing with the Hot lead and a homemade mold.
