I've got an old Herters 4a4 bell sinker mold. The number 7 barrel swivels do not fit in this. Anybody played with anything that would fit? I'd also be happy finding just a brass loop with a tail to insert. Almost something like what production bell sinkers have, with that little hammered end on the opposite end. I would like something either with an end, or long enough tail I can make crooked so that it doesn't pull out of the lead.

I don't have that mold, can you take a pic of the inside so we can see what it looks like. I'm sure once you post a pic everyone will give you good feedback and lots of ideas.

Here is a pic... it's probably small. I stole it from an ebay ad.

I could be wrong, but that mold looks like it was designed for CRANE swivel inserts?

I'm thinking it was meant for non swivels. I'd type something else, but I don't want to sound stupid. I'm thinking I'm gonna have to just twist eyes myself.
