It works well. I usually hold the top of the mold with some channel locks and then once they are out I usually run the edges over a wire wheel on the bench grinder. I would say they are somewhere in the 6-8 oz range.

I may have to cut the forms in half. there is no where I hunt that i need 8 oz weight. But that is a great idea. I have about 20 lbs of lead that i can use.

Are those decoy weights?

When dealing with people from Ohio, you can never be sure. So, I had to ask.

As we speak, I am reviewing the Ohio edition of the urban dictionary and it states,

Decoy weights:
Definition - butt plugs

Texas rigs, that answers my second question.

I personally can't stand using decoy weights that I can’t wrap around the keel or head to keep them from getting tangled up in the bag, but I don't use Texas rigs.

I was kinda skeptical of Texas Rigs. But after using them this year, I couldn't go back to the old school way. They don't work on my geese with removable keels very well though

Titz uses them, I like them, but I hunt lots of varying water depths and don't want to buy a different set of decoys for everywhere I go.

Probably should be said that the coefficient of thermal expansion on lead is quite high.
This means it shrinks when it cools.

Well thanks AB.. And yes, I knock the tubing off and let them cool a few minutes and then the nails do slide right out no problem. I use a old hammer handle to knock the tubing off.
