    Go to your dentist. Talk him out of some of his used bit’s. Mine gave me several in a small plastic box. Then buy a kit for Drexel at Home Depot that has several different collets. It will have one small enough to use those tiny bits. You need to open up the hook eye area a little and if mold ha hook point stop you will need to machine some of that off so hook will lay in right. Once you get that done take one hook at a time, place it in mold, close it up and hold it closed tight. Lay on bench and take your dead blow hammer and hit it a few licks, not pound. You need to open up the part where larger hook shank lays for it to pour right. I pour some 1/16 with 1/0 hooks by doing this
