Pencil Sinker Mold
Looking for a pencil sinker mold or any ideas how to make one. I am mainly looking for weights for drift fishing, with or without a swivel attached to it. No particular size, but it would prefer a few different sizes. Any ideas?

Check with Cabelas or even on ebay. You can get some good deals there. Cool

if you just want sinkers to bounce or drag along the bottom or to hang like a drop shot rig, why not just use coiled lead with a hole in the center. You can make them any weight by adjusting the length. just put a piece of bailing wire through the lead center and form a loop at each end or just crush the bottom on the wire to hold it in place.

@ Iadhomike: I have a ton of lead so wanted to make my own. I know about the coils though.

@TubeN2: I ended up getting one off ebay. Probably didn't need to get it since on the same day I got mine, someone else I know got one. It also seems like making a mold should be easy since there isn't anything fancy about a pencil shaped sinker.

Hey Ktrout.

If you have a good machinist friend, you can make a mold that would allow you to pour 10 or 15 or more sinkers at a time.

You just need a 2 piece mold that allows your to either insert a core to leave a hole in it or allow your to insert a swivel prior to pouring. Cool
