Question Melting Pots

I am looking for an electric melting pot. I need to melt solder for tinning wires. I think these are the same as what tackle makers and I guess ammo loaders use for casting bullets and weights. Anybody have an idea if this is sometrhing locally available?

Lee Melting Pot. Google it you can probably find it at a tackle store, basspro, Academy sports, etc. I have one. They work great.

This. I've got a Lee lead pot that I've casted thousands of bullets out of. Mine is a bottom pour, but for tinning wire, all you need is a basic pot. They're really inexpensive, & does a great job
