    Tube Molds

    I bought this mold when Chris was making them for Bear, have gotten several more over the years from Chris and Rupert. It shoots great and makes a really nice tube.

    Tube Molds

    This is the tube mold I am considering, just wish they made it in a 2.75". There smallest size is 3.25" but I could make due with that. http://ultramolds.com/product/tube-complete/

    Chicken in a chain belly color

    Looks to me more like a pearlescent. More transparent than regular white. I think just white wouldn't show the flake very well. Also looks like it's holograph flake rather than just silver.
  8. How do you make the “Chicken on a chain” belly color??? Is it just a few drops of white and silver flake?

    Trying to make another mold

    I have a jig mold that is not made anymore i cannot find one any where, It has a brush guard in it. I was wondering if i could possibly make a duplicate mold of the 1 i have now? Maybe make 2 boxes the same exact size pour maybe silicone or bondo to make mold of it, Then take to my buddy that works in aluminum foundry and have him make a mold of it? I do understand the boxes i make have to be the same . I didnt no what release agent i would need so the bondo or silicone i use will come off the mold without damage. I never did this before but the mold i have now only has 1 cavity in it ad i would like a mold with 2 or 3 cavities . Thanks

    Are the VMC 7161 hooks as strong as the Mustad 32786 hooks?

    That is a very clear way to show the critical factors in building a walking/gliding bait. For me, the lower the tail hangs, the shorter the glide. I keep the ballast in my big Pupfish-type glide lures closer to the mid point, so they sit almost level in the water, with just the front third out of the water. And I put a ramped chin on them, so there is more drag at the head. These are bigger baits, and this also reduces the amount of force needed to get the bait walking, which is important to me so I can fish a big bait longer, with less effort. My Spook/Sammie- type baits hang slightly more tail down, because they are light enough to walk more easily, and the shorter side-to-side walk caused by the ballast being farther back is what I'm looking for. I still ramp the chin, but it's not as critical. His video showed my why what I do works. Thanks.

    Mustad KVD Triple Grip Hooks

    Too big for my needs. I fish a lot of small baits for panfish. 2" minnow baits, micro cranks, Old Harrison Hoge Rocky juniors, all small hook stuff. anything bigger I have stashes of hooks for. Thanks for looking Ted. I talk to a lot of Bass Clubs, I'll mention it to them if you want.

    I have #8, #6 an #4. When I checked, the#10 and #12 are really small

    I'm really liking the VMC 7161 as a 410 replacement. The Gamakatsu Steelhead hook only runs to a 2/0 but should be close enough to the 630 to be considered or perhaps the 604 might work.

    Tube Molds

    I prefer the shoot and cut style, I just like the end product a little better, just my preference though, as the shot skirts look good too, I just like the randomness of the cut skirts. i have the angling ai 2.75 double dipper and their tail cutter, the mold is awesome, and the tail cutter works great. Also being a 5 cavity mold, you can make a bunch in short order, I bought 2 sets of extra rods but I think 1 extra would be plenty, shoot, pull them out, shoot again and pull the first ones off the rods while the 2nd is cooking, rinse repeat!

    I can't even imagine trying to put a treble that small on a bait. I couldn't even see the eye, I'm sure.

    Removing oxidation from old leadheads

    Yes, vinegar will work. It won't make it shiny, but it will clean the lead so it accepts paint.

    Tube Molds

    I have done it both ways. Cutting is for the birds. I like to shoot them with the skirts made. I started out with 2 single cavity molds but that was not enough so I bought 2 more. 4 is barely enough and I am only making for myself. A multi cavity mold or 2 would be nice.

    Removing oxidation from old leadheads

    Pretty sure I’ve seen vinegar will work. Try it. Cost very little time or money. Let us know what you discovered.

    tell us, but start with 1 type of what you want to build. theres a million variables..if you want to pour your own thru molding try makealure as stated. you need a mold,then the correct resin,plastic,urethane foam. my advice read till your eyes bleed.then adventure into it.
