Yep I have the namix 5 and 6oz mould and I always have problems getting the leads out of the moulds, but not actually separating one mould from another?

"Grease" the mold with candle smoke before filling it

If I were you I would drop Jason an email explaining the problem. He has helped me out in the past and seemed only to keen to help. It might be that you have a faulty batch of moulds, or he might be able to give you some advice, but he is certainly a nice guy and would iI think would be mortified to think his product is not working as it should.

I have the 5 3/4 oz flatback that takes the clip downs, and have no problems with it other than the one time I forgot to put the grip wire guides in and filled the holes with molten lead, that was fun trying to clear them out, did teach me a lesson though.

Other daft thing I did was trying to cast 3 or 4 leads at a time (using my other moulds) and poured into the namix, but forgot to pull the guides out while the lead was still soft, again bu88ered a set of wire guides up, another lesson learned.

Do you pre heat the mould before using it as this also helps?

Good luck hope you get it sorted.

my 6 oz one sticks to one side of the mould, it is a bit nippy and slows the process down, however the 7oz one... i cant fault it !!

as already said, give jason a ring, im not giving number out over the net, but remember these leads have deep recesses, i have made 100s of these leads and its all the joy of making your own.

But in his opinion, and a few others, its not a quality mould.

So maybe he's entitled to moan about it?:rtfm::rtfm::rtfm::rtfm:

i've got one of the earlier(£25) 5oz moulds with the shallow grooves for the grip wire's,not a problem as a well placed elastic band sorts that bit out,my mould sticks as well but a wee tap seperates the mould and a pair or pliers on the lead eye and one on the bottom half sorts it,not really a problem for me although i guess the op has a point even if imo a small one :huh:
got a ron thompson and a gemini/gemini splash down and they seperate just fine
still very good leads regardless of a few teething probs,would'nt be without my 'sticky namix' :clap:

is it within the law to produce and sell these leads to shops?
