    Great. Now I just need to find some thin walled heat shrink tubing big enough for a 1" rod

    My fishing escapades with lead repurposing for big sinkers as a youngster confirm this.

    Another thought would be casting your own ingot whatever shape you like.


    Sounds like you are on the right track.

    HomeDepot has wiring heatshrink tubing that large that when heated is about as thick as a sheet of paper. I just noticed you are in NY though, so not sure if you have a HomeDepot.

    I do a lot of boolit and shape casting of lead. I made lead discs that fit in the bottom of a tank boot. I think they are 4.5lb discs. Pretty cool.

    Why not a spray coating?

    I think that would scratch pretty quickly with use, and set up a dissimilar metal issue.

    Just looked on the Home Depot website, the only stuff I found big enough for a 1" pipe looked like heavy wall stuff. Do you have a link to what you would recommend? Thanks!

    I will look around for you, I see the thick wall stuff you are talking about at HomeDepot. I had used the shorter 3" long pieces..

    Thanks! Would rather it be one piece so that I don't have to worry about leakage/corrosion at the joints. I did see this, what do you think?
