Thread: Small ingot mold?

    "...Some of the tin coated steel ones the lead just solders itself to the pan. Pounding a couple out and throwing away the pan is a disappointment..."

    Been there. Done this. Cutting the muffin tin from the ingot "muffin" is a pain. They dont give up easily.

    Another vote for old muffin pans, have 2, 12 muffin pans. My sister wanted new and used my need for muffin pans as an excuse to get new. Mine, filled level full weigh right at 2 lbs. They stack well and 24 lead "muffins"
    is 48 lbs. Usually don't smelt that much at one time. If I did, I'd just get a couple more muffin pans.

    I've been collecting Factory ingot molds for over 40yrs.
    Got 20+ and a Lodge Cast Iron Scone Pan for unknown, until I can figure out how hard that alloy is.

    I use the different ingot molds to seperate alloys.
    OHAUS for Linotype
    LYMAN #2 of course.
    Lee one lb ingots for Pure Lead.
    Lee 1/2 lb ingots for Foundry Type

    And so on for RCBS, SAECO & Blank ( old RCBS )

    Makes life allot easier once you have every thing alloyed out.

    Except I've buying COWW's from Jetsfan-24, here.
    His ingots are 2 - 2.2lbs in nice squares. So I just weigh them out and mark the weight on each with a felt marker.
    A scale is a Tremendous help in maintaining your alloy integrity, batch to batch.

    Jetsfan-24 alloys are the best and VERY, VERY clean.
    I HATE auto-correct


    Happiness is a Warm GUN & more ammo to shoot in it.

    My Experience and My Opinion, are just that, Mine.
