Jim,

Those look great! I notice you don't have any vents cut in, so I am assuming you injected those. Did you pour or inject them?

Thanks

I injected those in a pop mold Mike. We were having the discussion regarding injection and pop and resin molds. I can hand pour it after it is warm and even without vents, it pours perfect.

Jim what s great looking bait. Nice work there. Jim I got a question for ya. I have been messing around with a full body mouse bait and have been having problems pouring it without it getting a dimple on bait. Can you share any tips. I was going to try to cut a few vents in my two piece silicone mold to see if I can correct the dimple issue. But if you can share a few tip I would appreciate it.

I have been following that thread, that is exactly what got me looking for the vents. You have helped me with some dialogue in making a two piece grub mold in the past. I have made a few molds now and have one currently that pours very well, but is a little bigger than what I want. Every new one I make I give less vents and it amazes me how well they pour. The last one I made even gets some 'flashing'in the seem. When I saw this I wondered if a grub would pour without venting, it would cut down on the trimming. Because of the flashing it seems like some gasses are releasing, just wondering if enough would.

Thanks

Frank:

If you leave a bait in the mold til very cool, like overnight, do you still get the dimple? You might either have to cut a vent or let the bait get completely cool to resolve that issue. I am guessing the large volume of plastic cooling is causing the problem. I have the same issue with one of my larger frog molds. If I leave it to cool completely, I get a complete frog.

Jim I have tried to leave the bait in the mold to cool a bit longer but with no success. The dimple still shows up. I will take you advice and cut in a few vent holes in the new mold to see if it helps out. I still have much to learn making these things. But enjoy this hobby a great deal. Thanks again Jim for your help.
