Making #2 & #3 size lead shot from wheel weights.
To make shot this size I had to adjust lead tempreture, lead pressure and angle on the dropper plate.
I made the shot drippers myself.

Its abit complicated to make a larger size shot maker,
the shot drippers have 0.9mm hole drilled,
the lead is only hot enough that it only a bit above melting tempreture.
The puddle of melted lead in the shot maker is shallow, the reason for this to reduce the flow of lead through the drippers, so the drips and doesnt flow.
I also use a basic butane torch just to touch the drippers and the ramp occasionally to keep everything flowing consistantly.
I hope that this information has been some assistance.
