Just got my first sixbanger as well so can add little to GP100man's excellent post. My Lee seemed to take awhile getting up to temp so I'm looking for a hot plate to add to my casting setup. These moulds seem to like to run pretty hot but need cooling down from time to time also, I keep a damp towel around and press the bottom of the mould against it when it gets too hot.
