Holding the eye in the mold while it's open
« on: 04/02/15 17:30 UTC »
I'm new to trying to pour my own sinkers and I was having a hard time holding the brass eyes in the mold.  I know that they are a press fit, but when the mold is hot I can't seem to get them to stay in place.  Any tips would be appreciated.

You just need to bend the eye apart a hair.
Then it should fit fine.

Oiling the hinges will make the mold close smoother.
