Mold guide for Lee Production pot

I have a Lee production Pot.
https://www.amazon.com/LEE-PRECISION.../dp/B000NOORXY

I'm looking for a mold guide to support the mold under the pot.
My pot does not have the Legs to bolt something to.

What's an easy thing I can get w/o having to spend a bunch of effort making it?

Thx

What spacing would you need to make your molds rest in the correct spot? Maybe some square metal tubing that mold can slide over like 1" or 1 1/4"

Most of what I see on the ones with legs, have something to clamp onto a leg and then a wingnut/wingbolt to adjust.

I'm looking to avoid a DIY if I can.
I'm expecting someone already sells something I can drill a hole into the bottom plate and bolt down.

Ok, if you hold a lee mold under neath of it to pour, how much space is between the bottom of the mold and the bottom plate?

Square tubing at 45 degrees and could be vise lock clamped in place for the mold to slide across.

Or if your molds are all the same thickness how about al thread drilled through the bottom plate on each side in the front. One nut underneath and one on top to stiffen the posts. Then two nuts on each side all thread rod, loose with a flat metal bar with a hole for each post in it. You adjust the 2 nuts on each post to raise or lower the flat metal bar. Get it to the right height and you can slide the mold right across it.

So, the arthritis is starting to show in the wrists is it?



Sad to say but that is why I sold my nice HG, SAECO and LYMAN gang molds and went to aluminum.

Whatever you choose, make sure it is aluminum so that the spills won't stick to it.

I worked on both the Center console boat and the Pontoon this weekend then sprayed down a gallon of weed killer on the rocks. Mechanic replaced the fuel filters at the end of winterizing instead at the beginning and I had to pump up 3 outboard bulbs to get them flowing again and my forearm is still flaming ! This was all before the honey do list even started! I should have gotten my kids up to help
I'm running low on 357 and am not even THINKING of molding this week LOL

Make your own leg like this, just don’t rest more than the mold on it. Sorry, wasn't sideways on my phone.
