    Default Found, no longer needed downrigger weights

    I am looking for downrigger weights, preferably coated. 8 to 15 lb. esp. 12lb. I also have a 50 lb. (or so) block of quality lead for trade or pouring, located in south sound. Bob R

    If you want stick weights, get a aluminum pipe, cut it down the center, it will spread a little then use hose clamps to squeeze it back together stand it up on a metal surface, melt your lead and pouring the pipe at the top insert a ss rod that kind of looks like a skinny horseshoe, let cool. weight is determined by pipe length and diameter.

    For a ball weight use a styrofoam ball the size you want your downriver ball. mix up some plaster paris, cover the ball, leaving a small opening at the top to pour your lead through fill with lead then insert loop at the top.

    spray with dipit or paint.
