    They work well enough and fit most casting pots but they really don't stack that well. If you can live with that they make an ok ingot.

    I have been using some stainless steel muffin pans that my wife bought new and didn't like. There are 6 muffins to a pan and I have 4 pans. They work really well. I don't know what she paid for them, and rather expect that I don't want to know.
    Oklahoma. Quite possibly the reddest state in the U.S.A. 77 counties, 2 elections, and not a single one went for B.O. Uh make that 3 elections, we didn't care much for Hillary either.

    I needed an ingot mold for a bunch of scrap lead pipe. I grabbed my wife's mini muffin pan. It is a fairly heavy steel construction with a no stick coating that looks like new after over 150 pounds of melted lead went through it. I like it because the 1/2 pound ingots are perfect for my 10 pound dripolator.

    You own this muffin pan now, don't take back to the kitchen to be used for cooking. Lead poisoning could result.

    Yes that I'm aware of. Already replaced it for her.

    I have used dollar store coated steal pans, lyman steel moulds and now the Redneck gold/cast boolits aluminum molds that Lakehouse now sells. A little more expensive then Dollar store pans but worth it. It depends on what size I'm looking for.

    Heres the Lighthouse link.

    Just to be clear, I don't have an interest in Lighthouse's venture. It's just a good product offered by a Cast Boolit member.

    You forgot to put in the paper muffin liners to keep them form sticking! Just kidding, of course. I’m a big fan of molds made from angle iron. If you or a friend can weld, they are cheap and work well. They don’t need to be thick thinner stock cools faster. Mine usually come out a little over two pounds.

    I like the the triangle shape. You can add them to a cold pot vertically and they fit efficiently into the circle of the pot. When you add to molten lead, they slip in instead a big plop.

    And in keeping with this spirit, I'll add...

    I'm using some cast iron muffin pans that I got from Sportsman's Warehouse. The ingots don't have much taper to them, so they stack nicely. They also are a perfect diameter to fit the Lee 20 pound pot nicely.

    I've had them for years now, but noticed that our local Sportsman's still carried them as of last week.

    Downside: They're pricey. Like thirty bucks each.

    Cast iron skillets, pans for scones, muffins and corn bread (ear of corn version) show up at GW on occasion, often at reasonable prices for such durable items. Better if they're rusty: lower price, better mold release. Of course, if they're TOO rusty sometimes to price jumps because now they're "antiques" or "heirlooms".
