Making a mold is easy when you know how. Seriously, Do you have a good jig, sans scars or marks, and if so, whats the size and weight? Although Non metal molds have a limited life span, unless you're going commercial, they'll surely fulfill your needs. What finish do they have? Any Pics?

I have regular diamond jigs and norwegian jigs that range in weight from 8-14oz and some are chrome plated and some are just basic lead colored. I also have a few codzilla jigs. I do not have the first clue as what to do when making a mold. I heard you can carve one out of wood but would that work?

Trust me when I tell you that with a bit of practice, you can master mold making, Provided you have a place to work. The house kitchen is a very poor choice, unless you're looking to get out of your marriage. Jigs like you're talking about contain some zinc or antimony to make them harder than lead, alone. Still, I've made tons of lead heads and squids which worked as well as store bought. Actually I caught more fish because I wasn't afraid to loose them. If you're a good scrounger, you cam make them for little more than the cost of the hooks you use.
