Howdy,I posted this question on the Salty Dogs also,how do you get the brass eyes to stay in the mold till you get it closed? Mine seems to stay on the eye of the mold for a few sinkers then it will not hold where its supposed to.Any suggestions from you molders out there would be appreciated.

What brand, style and size of sinker mold are you having problems with? Maybe I can help you out if i have that info.

What I have used in the past is a small strip of scotch tape. Once the mold has been heated by repeated pouring, there is enough of the tape left over to hold the brass fittings in place till you get them closed. Has worked for me in the past. Just my .02 :cheers:

Have been told that bar soap works well. Haven't had the opportunity to try yet, but will soon have my pot repaired, and will be giving it a try. Now I just have to find where I misplaced my eyelets.

Pinch the eyes closed a small amount then they will fit snugly onto the mold. Too much and they are too hard to get on.
