I prefer the Rowell for the capacity and ease of use, but it is a little large for some using small pots... over the years I have found larger capacity pots so the Rowell is my mainstay...btw Lewis, just sent in another felt order... good to go for a long time

I can’t tell you how many 1000’s of pounds I melted through that rig over the years. I recently got a Lee IV bottom pour electric that I love to use because I don’t have to wear my headphones to silence it. It pours enough for my needs so far. I have ladles from 5 lbs. down to 6oz. Depends on the project,smelting ingots, casting bullets.
Casting bullets is a completely different process from casting fishing weights and lures. I’ve come to learn more about it from guy’s on here and the other place but I’m still learning and stay open minded.
Idaholewis mentioned once about coating his empty pot with oil when finished casting. What do others do ? Would using melted parriffin be better (easier to let melt into the next pour)? Not meaning to get off topic, Magnum.
