just wondering if any one has tried to make buck tails they are so expensive now i want to try to make some.... any advice would be appreciated
i was lookin to make some this spring, so im all ears on advise as well...
They are not that hard to make, getting clean raw lead is the major issue. I've got teardrop molds, open mouthed molds, popeye molds, ect. A good melting pot is also cructial. I've got one with a dial on it for accurate heat setting.
If you get the lead for free from a boardwalk shooting arcade (hint) or a tire store then you'll have no more than ten or fifteen cents in each one. If you have to buy the lead then that's another story. Be sure to use good ventilation when melting the lead.
You are welcome to use my molds and pot, and I think i have some hooks, if you wanna give it a try. I'd be happy to show you how.
ok thanks cl i will have to try that maybe we can meet up some day and you can show me how to do it.....thanks
I'll box up some stuff and send it in this week with Hunter. I think that you'll be able to figure it out. You are welcome to use it for a while if you wish. If you do - -MAKE SURE THAT YOU WEAR SAFETY GLASSES AND GLOVES. HOT LEAD FRIGGING BURNS LIKE NOTHING ELSE!!!!!!!!!!
I've gotta pick up some lead in Snow Hill this week anyhow. I'll even slide you some of that for one of those slick Delaware Lax T shirts.
thanks! im sure we still have some of those t shirts lying around
