I bought a doit mold that was made for lure bodys and added two slots across the cavitys. Now I get an insert that looks like a double T. This way It does not slip out. Frank

I use Mojo sinkers, so I can vary the rate of fall. I make a pilot hole with an awl, but I'm sure you can afix a wire in your mold to make the pilot hole when you pour.

I took a quick look at the Do-It Molds website.
My guess is this would be the one.

Nice idea Frank. :yay:
Thanks.
