    It looks good to me too. I blamed you last weekend when I cut an old Propane tank in half. The SWAMBO ask why. Told her Lighthouse2012 was tempting me to get into smelting by making these cool ingot moulds. She wanted to know who this bad influence and enabler was (you) but I defended your honor and blamed it on my bad habits and explained really it would save me money in not having to buy from Roto Metals. No sure she believed me as she walked away shaking her head.

    Price will be about that, depending on how many you order.

    Letters are PB for Lead, WW for wheel weights, LN for Lino and OT for other. I cant easily modify the letters, there is a cost for reworking the die.

    How many do you want to get before ordering? Do you have this GB posted on any other sites?

    Hi Springfield,

    I've been working through a few details on the molds and I now have everything figured out. I'm becoming a Vendor Sponsor and am going to start selling them outright. The advantage for folks is they wont have to put their money in and wait months for the molds, I have decided to front all the costs for this next die change and I've already placed the order with the caster. He has already casted a second order of the Cast Boolits logo and is finishing up the die change for this new mold, I expect to have them both in hand within a month.

    I'll be putting together my VS sales area in the next few days so everybody knows pricing. It's not going to be much different then what the first run went for, I'm not doing this to get rich...

    I like creating for you guys, and I think I can do it better if its not a slow and cumbersome process like some of the GB's can currently run. I'd like to start keeping consistant stock on the molds, and then start taking ideas from you-all for new molds that I can create and offer.

    Way off topic to the thread, but imagine custom brass ladle's that will handle pours in these big molds. Making proper tooling gets me excited...

    Just a suggestion if you're getting into the mold business. Have you considered making a hammer head mold?? Had one floating around the board years ago but some creep member got it on loan and disappeared.

    Lakehouse, not sure if it will really matter since you're getting a VS up and running but can you remove me from this list? I thought the Cast Boolits mold would not be run again and i'm curious to see what other designs pop up. Thanks
