Lee Palmer Pot Melter - anyone own one ?

 Im interested in buying one, does anyone here know if they are available in Perth ? I need to cast a bunch of sinkers in proper haste. My system is too slow haha, any insight is appreciated.

 I have a 10Lb LEE bottom pour lead pot and it's great, it is from Lee precision in the US tho, made for bullet making but I use it for bullets and sinkers.

I make bullets from .22 cal up to 24oz Snapper lead sinkers with it. (even had a go at casting lead toy soldiers with it)

Gets hot quick and I can keep it going without stopping by topping about half a kilo of lead in it when it can fit. Like a production line, I made 900 Star sinkers in a couple of hours with it and had no problem with it keeping up with melting the lead quick enough, it has a good temp control on it, so you can keep it where you want it, so you can be precise with the flow of the melt etc.

 

Hope that helps.

 I got the 20lb bottom pour. Needed to make a new base to give enough clearance to get larger moulds under. I've made up to 80oz sinkers with mine. got it from Adelaide gun shop online. Works mint

 Mine was pretty cheap even with ordering it from LEE in the US and getting it sent here.

(Aust dollar was pretty good back then I also got a rifle scope, Bushnell Elite tactical 4.5 to 30 times zoom for $750 and $20 post, the same scope here would of been over 2 grand)
