    Cubbie4457, where do I send the pic
  4. The ones I have were made in bulk from a sample I sent the manufacturer. They fit the diner shiner as in the pic on the Do-It website. If you have issues with them return them and I'll refund your money.
  5. Didn't get sick. Quit before any symptoms developed.

    Yes, thanks. Invoice sent.
  7. Glad you're getting by OK.
  8. I thought about lead free, but my market would not tolerate the expense or the weight difference. Everyone wants smaller/heavier. I found that you could lay an ingot of lead on your hand for 20 years and not get contaminated. It's when you work it by hand and rub it till your fingers are black that you can absorb it into your system. When you transfer this black residue to cups and eating utensils or touch your mouth you can add to your contamination. The melting methods we as hobby pourers or even small business operators don't get the lead hot enough to be a problem. Lead does not vaporize at those temps. It's when we use dirty lead that smokes or when we flux that residue becomes airborne. Not to mention what's in the smoke from other contaminants. It is always a good idea to wash your hands anytime you come in from the shop or just take a break. If you notice that black residue on your hands wash them first in cold water as hot water tends to open your pores and let some lead into your system. Wear your protective stuff because it is always better to er on the side if caution. You can find some really good info on those bullet casting sites.
  9. Thanks smalljaw and canuk 2, it is hard to walk away from something that I have toiled over and perfected over just long of 40 years. Back in the day is was what precautions. Now I can't emphasize enough the need for them. I'm lucky, I got out in time.

    Clearing out all lead bait making equipment and supplies Questions will be answered here by PM or at 559-240-6754. New molds have never been used or once or twice to produce samples. Used molds have been used through the course of business. Prefer to sell hooks by lot, but will sell 100pks of any hook. Will use the most economical method of shipping. Thanks
  13. Hello fellow Leadheads, It is with a sad heart that I quitting all production of lead baits. My doctor finally said that I have reached my saturation point and would be in my beat interest to quit. I will be liquidating the wire bait portion of my business. I will start posting equipment and component list in the classifieds soon. I am OK health wise. I don't glow in the dark or have uncontrollable twitches. It's just time to move on. I will continue following the soft plastics forum as I will still be producing plastic baits.
