    Minnie mould

    Is this the right forum to place a minie mould for sale, or should it go in the general sales section?

    I tried the bay but they won't have it.

    Thanks.

    As I have no idea what it is, I can't say.

    It is a mould for casting lead minies. (Hollow base muzzle loader).

    How do you post a photo

    Hi there, it is Lee 575-472 which means it casts a .575 diameter hollow based minie weighing 472 grains.

    If you google "Lee 575-472" you will see the mould type.

    I do not have the oermission to place an "attachments" on my thread, does anyone know how I can get "attachments allowed" turned on please?

    If I cannot show a photo on this thread I assume that I wouldn't be able to do so on a sales thread either. I am sure that I have posted photo's in the past.

    Sales areas allow you to attach photos directly.

    Uploading photos generally has been discussed many times in the past, quite recently as it happens. The search box above will help you out

    Thank you for the info Dave. I will have a go later, after a walk in the sunshine.
