On a whim I made some tubes out of folded aluminum foil and tried to cast some pencil leads like that.....It worked well......So there is yet another way to make some sinkers

Now let me show you some quality molds. Do It is the walmart/kmart stuff...in other words, garbage. If you're going to pour your own lead, get stuff from this guy. I don't think Do It has any of the newly improved designed stuff, just stuff from the leave it to beaver years.

Comes in 3-4-6 oz sizes also





I got 3 molds from him. Expensive, yes, but it's worth it. I have the squid jig mold 2 to 6 oz, guppy jig mold 8 to 12 oz and the bullet slider mold 5 to 10 oz. Material cost to make a big jig is around $2.50 to $3.00. No big deal if it get snag on the bottom. I see big jigs like these cost over $10.00. I'm a DIY kind of person, so making lures are part of the fun.
