Hey Folks,
I have 2 lead molds that have broken hinges on them ( See Picks) is there any easy way to replace or repair these?

Find a small metal door hinge that will fit. Grind off old hinges. Drill pilot holes, then use a tap to thread the holes to accept screws.

Maine text will burn with the heat.

Use 4 C clamps to squeeze the mold in position before you drill your pilot holes
