Making Aileron Counter Weights

I purchased an inexpensive pot and proceeded to melt my lead divers weights on a camp stove. It seemed to take quite a while for the melting to begin but once it started it proceeded fairly quickly. Once I had about 1/2 of one 8 lb weight melted I decided to try pouring. Pouring the lead into the mold was pretty uneventful. There seemed to be a lot of bubbling going on. I\’ll have to see what the results look like after I get the lead out of the mold. The first weight looked great out of the mold. The second one was not quite so nice. I used my plumbing torch to melt some additional lead and fill in the voids.
