You want to find an old cast iron pot. The ones at Harbour Frieght are made in china, and cant take the heat like old made in the USA ones. I bought a cheap one, and cracked it on when it got hot. Learned lesson.

I too am looking for a large cast dutch oven, but for cooking. I had one years ago but ruined it melting lead. These things sell for over $60 most places I see. I'd like to find one with a lid that hasn't had anything toxic in it.

Post up what you want to sell.
You will get more for them here than the guy at T&W will give you.
Including me.

Academy has some pretty decent cast iron at good prices.
I've got a double burner fish cooker. I use a big oval cast iron pan when cooking up quite a bit but wanted something I could use on one burner. Went to Academy about 4 years ago and bought a deep frying pan for $11. I've not had a problem with it.

As someone that makes sinkers, you don't need anything that's very big. When they get a lot of lead in them they get heavy fast and are hard to control. I pre-melt my tire weight in a pan to clean them of slag then pour the lead into a muffin tin to make ingots. After that I have a electric melting pot that has a handle on it that controls the flow out of a small hole in the bottom which is used to fill my molds.
This is the one I've had for years. http://www.tacklewarehouse.com/descp...-DILMPPIV.html
