Is there no credible lead salesperson on THT any longer?

AceSinkers quit

Who to call?

I'm sitting on 100 pounds of cleaned ingots. I've got Do It egg sinker molds from 3/8 to 12oz if I can help you I will. I've sent sinkers to ATXFENCE and RedfishRay in the past. I can send 72 pounds for $13 using USPS. I also have molds for bank sinkers up to 24oz as well as pyramid to 5oz. That set of molds is out on loan for another week as a pattern to make my heavy butterfly jigs I can easily make up 70 pounds of something and have them in the mail Monday. We can work out a fair price a little less than the normal $0.50 an ounce I see often at my local shops. Just looking to recoup the lead for my own gear. I am also willing to trade. Currently I've got a lot of 3/8 to 4 oz egg and pyramids made up in my leader making bucket.

Let me know if you'd like to try something that's not a business in it for a profit, just wanted to start making my own lead years ago as a hobby after hanging up several pounds in the channels every few weekends.

If you would like to price it that's cool.
Most going rates seem to be 2.50lb with flat rate shipping

10lbs egg 10oz
10lbs egg 8oz
10lbs egg 6oz

10lbs pyramid 5oz
10lbs pyramid 4oz
10lbs pyramid 3oz

That should do me for this year.

Bignic has my money first if it comes through. He is trying to hook me up on eggs for sure. Still need the pyramids though.

Thanks!!
