As seen on YouTube.... The video I copied was in Spanish though

Its really pretty simple.......I cut a sheet of paper into 4 pieces......Roll each piece into a cone shape and secure with tape.......cut off the pointy end so you can only just fit your swivel in the hole and secure it in place with tape.....trim the cone to the size you want and fill it with lead.......THE PAPER CONES DO GET VERY HOT.......Wear good heat resistant gloves or you are asking for trouble.....once the lead is fully solidified I drop the cones into a bucket of water WELL AWAY from my lead pot......it makes cutting the paper off the lead weights much easier........some people put the cones pointy end down in a container of sane before pouring lead into the cones but my setup does not allow that
