SUBJECT: Who makes custom lead molds?

Submitted by fishEH ( from ILLINOIS on

I'm looking for a place that will make a custom lead mold for me. I can but the blank Do-It mold but need someone to machine it out to my specs. Anybody know a reliable place? Thanks.

  1. Jeff Hahn from OHIO says Custom Molds
    FishEH: Do you know how much money you are talking about to have a blank DO-It mold custom machined? LOTS of money...$350-$1000, depending on many factors. I have had some custom molds mades from industrial silicone. While a silicone mold won't last as long as an aluminum mold, they say it is good for at least 1000 pours. Give these guys a call, they do a great job.

    In-Shore Tackle Company 241 Sing Sing Road Horseheads, NY 14845 (607) 739-4303

  2. BassNNymph from KENTUCKY says Try calling this place!

    Cheapiest Alum mold and he will customize them for you!

  3. fishEH ( from ILLINOIS says industrial silicone?
    Can you pour hot lead into silicone? If you can, 1000 pours would be fine. I've got a great idea for a weight and its hard to develop a prototype.

  4. Mule Skinner ( from VIRGINIA says Molds
    ACE Molds, Tampa FL, call Noel Noggle 813-948-1461. Zorn molds. You can try making your own, there is instructions at crankenstein.net University/college mechanical engineering schools often have cnc machining courses, a student might make your mold as a class project at a low cost. There are several high temperature silicones that are used for casting lead, Dow Corning Silastic RTV 3120,& Castaldo Quik-Sil.

  5. Jeff Hahn from OHIO says Cost of Silicone mold
    fishEH: The molds from In-Shore tackle cost $25.00 each. Yes, you can pour hot lead into silicone. It is not the same kind of silicone that we use on our boats to seal a water leak!

  7. Triton Mike from GEORGIA says Better yet not to mention cheaper
    Make your own molds. The molds I make cost less than $5.00 and are worth hundreds of pours maybe more. Takes a little time but worth it in cost savings. Go to this link www.geocities.com/Spotcountry and click on articles and select the "Making a Spinnerbait Mold" granted this article is about making spinnerbaits but the same idea applies to jig heads, darter heads, plastics etc etc. Any questions email me bucca1@aol.com
