This large, deep pot will hold and melt approximately 10 lbs. of lead in less than 20 minutes. The pour spout is up front where it belongs so you can see what you're doing. Infinite heat control. Uses only 500 watts of power during heat-up and a lot less to maintain temperature. Large sturdy base. Well suited for commercial casting, clubs, etc. Perfect for molding sinkers and lead-head jigs. 4" clearance under the spout is high enough to accept most brands of molds. Operates on 120-volt AC.
