Keel Grabber/J Weights Molding

Postby KillerKowalski » Tue Nov 19, 2013 11:16 am

I have about five dozen four ounce keel grabber/j weights that I would like to have melted and made into eight ouncers. Anyone local have a mold and willing to do it? Obviously I will pay. If not, they are up for sale soon.

Go to a machine shop and have them make a mold for ya out of scrap aluminum or if you have a community college that has a shop program and have them cut you one up. I had the local community college make me one up and it didn't cost me a penny.

Good idea! If I decide to have a mold made, I will contact my local CC. I have contacted a custom seller already and he makes them for $30 per mold set. Makes six in each.

The problem is this is a one time deal. I don't want to throw the lead away that I already have. Rather make 8 ouncers and use what I have. Also, I forgot I have about two dozen strap weights that I haven't used in ten years.

Hmmmmmm 4oz x 2 is 8oz. Have you tried soldering or bolting/ screwing them together?
