Lead jigs

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I’m new to this page and jig making...question is where may I find a small cast iron ladle small enough for the small lead melting pot from Basspro. I ordered on from Basspro and it was as big or bigger than the pot ..

Welcome to TU. First of all what size pot or model number do you have. For most of all of your jigs unless you are pouring over 1-1/2 ounces, I found this ladle works really well. It is lightweight and can be used by L.H and R.H people. It is made by "Lee". Chepaest place I found it was here https://www.midwayusa.com/product/161177/lee-lead-dipper

Anything heavier that 1-1/2 ounces, you can get a medium size ladle.

I currently get all of my lead from a  personal supplier. However you can buy all your lead from Roto-Metals. They will have what you need. It runs about $2 per pound. If you buy enough you can get free shipping. Here is a link to the site. I would call them to confirm anything you need. You can also buy lead with antimony or tin in there as well. I forgot but they have pots and ladles as well. A lot of good info on their site.

One of our members named caster says they have clean lead with 3% antimony poured in ingots for 1.25 a pound. Sounds like a good price to me.
