 Should be easy to find even

 Should be easy to find even in the shops but how about make your own out of plaster of paris. Because of Masters closing down I scored a 20kg bag of hardwall plaster for $12 or something. Normal retail is only $20. If you want a couple of kgs to play with, I can give that to you. Personally, I dont bother with star sinkers for surf as I use spoon shape. For this you only need to raid your cutlery drawer but don't use it for eating after though. Lead residues not good for your health. If you need other shapes easy enough to use plasticine or moulding clay to cast in plaster. Sure the plaster mould may not last as long but depends on shape and pour. My spoon plaster one is still being used after 20 years. The only ones that need to be remade are my lead head jigs because the mould is in 2 halves. Even so they last up to 15 - 20 if you take care in removing.
