Are any of you familiar with the process of making tungsten weights. I know it’s completely different than lead and melts at a much higher temperature.

Are the tungsten jig heads made with some sort of epoxy/tungsten powder mix? Otherwise it seems the steel hooks would melt while making...

Has anyone seen any tungsten weight making videos? I’m curious

I've heard that tungsten jigs were 2 pieces of tungsten epoxied together but that might be really old info or could've just been 1 brand that was doing it that way. I'm curious as well about the process.
