I'm new to this forum and from South Australia
About a year ago, I bought a stack of do-it moulds from a tackle shop that was closing down. Since then I've bought a few more moulds from Do-it (down rigger bombs) and have managed to sell a few of them, which is awesome. I mainly use roofing lead, as it's fairly clean, without much crap - and melts quickly.
In speaking to some of the tackleshop owners, they are happy with the sinkers I make but want them shiny - as their customers want them that way. I tend to agree, as mine seem to dull quickly.
So my question is - what do you guys use to mix with the lead to make it shiny? Also, what quantities do you mix it with? My pot holds approximately 35 kilos of lead - which is huge - but does the job.
