    Melting Pot??The Ultimate Inferno

    Went to a scrapyard today to get my first load of WW and run across this beauty.This is a Hilts Molds "The Ultimate Inferno"Ive done a search on this and havent really came up with anything other than they make fishing lure molds.This is one HEAVY DUTY pot.I would say it will hold 40-50 or more lbs of lead.ANY info on this melting pot would be appreciated.....Steve

    It might be these folks, though that melter does not seem to be in the current catalogue.

    Don't know much about Hilts but I have one like that and it is a bottom pour also. It came with 4 different nozzles but I can't remember where I put them. The one it has in it is for pouring big sinkers and no good for boolits. I paid $10 for mine and it was in immaculate shape. It holds around 40 lbs of lead. Mark
