I have a bottom pour 10lb melting pot and a couple moulds for making sinkers. the regular sinkers i make are walking sinkers and usually bell sinkers that doesn't require me to soften the lead.. But with the removable split shots the lead sinkers needs to be soft enough so it can be crimped then bent back without snapping like they usually do. Does anyone els have this problem or might know a solution to my problem?
when crimping them on they are fine but when I go to bend them back they snap in half.
