  QUESTION: Bismuth for making bismuth fishing sinkers. 28 Jun 2004, Victoria Australia

I'm looking to make bismuth fishing sinkers, and use a lot of them and I'm hoping that you may know the names of suppliers of the raw metal in Victoria or Australia whom I can contact.

Yours Sincerely Peter

ANSWER: 28 Jun 2004

Dear Peter,

The only place I know that supplies bismuth is Consolidated Alloys in Melbourne at 32 Industrial Ave Thomastown VIC 3074 at approximately $50/kg - phone 93595811 or 93594076. Good luck with your project and let us know if you come up with a saleable product because a couple of Australian companies have tried to make non-lead fishing sinkers but later disappeared from view, so you should have the Australian domestic market all to yourself.

Yours Sincerely
Elizabeth O'Brien
