 Couldn’t find any is aust when I was looking mate. I bought 32oz and 64pz from the states but they were shit and they were single pours. My mate ended up buying two lengths of 20mm jarrah. Clamped them tight together to create two halves to the mould (total 40mm wide). Then We drilled along into the join with a 18mm timber bit. Worked out the volume of the hole required and the drill to that depth. We drilled 5 holes and poured 5 sinkers at a time. Worked mint

Not easy

 Not easy to find molds like that in Australia. 

You would need to have them made. If you know someone with a cnc mill they might be able to help you. But it wont be cheap. 

there are companies in the states who offer this service, but have never found anyone local . 

Good luck ..

 If you get stuck, you could mix bentonite, white sand and water and pack into shallow trays, mark and carve out your shapes, drill pouring holes and clampi together. Make sure the sand is completely dry before pouring or it'll go bang.

 I looked into getting a mold

 I looked into getting a mold made locally in Perth (sorry, can't remember the place), but after chatting to the guy, he told me that he couldn't come close to matching the price of purchasing one at the tackle shop. The purchased ones weren't quite what I wanted, but for the price, it'll have to do.
