Clip-on depth finder mold
« on: 02/09/22 11:07 UTC »
Seems the covid scare has caused a shortage of ice fishing depth finders. So I guess the next best thing is to find a mold in order to pour my own!
Anyone know where to purchase a mold ?

Welcome to the Do-It forums, Ricko.

Can't help with the mold you'd like but I have taken a bass sinker, snipped off the swivel then flipped the sinker over and drilled a hole from bottom to the top, getting rid of the remaining portion of the swivel buried in lead. Then I simply epoxied an alligator clip in the sinker's narrow end.
