      Works perfectly

      By D.R.

      from Indianapolis, IN

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

      • Easy to use
      • Weights Release Easily

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • 2 3 Or 4lb Weights

        this worked wonderfully to created approximately 40 pounds of weights in just a couple hours. 2 to 4 pounds seems to be the ideal range for this to handle. One pounders would probably work ok but they would be quite thin and be hard to release from the mold without damaging them. Five pounds of lead completely fill this thing to the top making it harder to safely handle.

        Amazing Weight Mold

        By Abyss Denizen

        from Vancouver, B.C.

        Pros

        • Compact
        • Durable

        Cons

        • Cooling Time
        • Sourcing Lead

        Best Uses

        • Consistent Weight Style
        • Custom Weights

        Over the years of diving, I have salvaged and purchased a variety of weight sizes and styles. I was looking to standardize my weight style and streamline my weight. I picked up this mold and love it. It will cast from 1 Lb to 5.25 Lb blocks, but I would recommend against casting 5 Lb weights with this mold as they are rather tall. Similarly, the 1 Lb weights are thin and may distort. 2-4 Lb weights are very nicely sized.
        I use a propane camp stove with a 3 cup stainless measuring cup to melt my lead in. A pair of welders gloves allow me to handle the pot and mold without burning myself. Expect to poor 1 to 2 weights initially to get the mold warmed up, after that you can poor a weight every 3-5 minutes, about how long it takes your next batch of lead to completely melt.
        I try to estimate my weight to be pored as large quantities of molten liquid can be unwieldy. The mold sits on a piece of corrugated cardboard on my kitchen scale. This allows me to poor accurate weights of any size. Once I have completed the poor, I reload the pot with new lead and flip the mold over on my work bench. When the pot is melted, I rap the mold, on the bench, and the weight drops out. A quick stir and skim of the pot and I am ready for the next poor.
        When you are finished for the day, poor the remainder of your lead into the mold rather than leaving it in the pot. It can easily be remelted later.
        Expect to leave the mold out for at least an hour if not longer to allow it cool before storage. You could dunk it in water, but I don't as I am worried about cracking it.

        Takes some work

        By Lm27

        from Georgia

        Pros

        • Rugged

        Cons

          Best Uses

            This is a rough sand casting. If you want the weights to drop free after casting you must polish the surface roughness from the vertical surfaces. Use a paint stirrer or similar with 120 grit. Then coat with DFG (dry film graphite) or I as I did Moly-Disulfide. Put the mold on a scale (insulate to minimize heat transfer) and pour accurate weights.

                  easy to use, but would be so much better if it had tick marks for smaller waights (1 lb, 2 lb,... etc)

                  Great lil mold!!

                  By Martin C

                  from Wilmington,NC

                  This is a great mold.Have made over 100#'s of weights from 2-5 pounders no problems at all.Before using i rubbed a little bit of plumbers silicone grease (found at home depot)inside and had no trouble getting the blocks out.I did heat the mold while melting the lead for the first pour.After that just left in the mold until i was ready to pour the next block.Just a couple taps on a concrete block and the fall right out.
