Hey Amigo, I did not get back to this thread until today. I have a halibut ball sinker mold that I will give you but it is probably the same as what you already have. Outdoor emporium used to sell crescent sinker molds. They may still sell them.
Here is the scoop but you are really
going to owe me. I can cast an aluminum mother mold for you. (its actually pretty easy)
If you have one of the slip weight sinkers, bring it with you next week when you come down to work on your build. I have done a lot of aluminum casting and I have some 356 in the ladle ready to go. I can teach you how to make the master mold from high temp plaster. There are several set up options that are pretty easy.
This one is a gimme
