  1. Past hour
  2. 3d crankbait

    If that one doesn’t work out so well, I have a split body version that I can send you to you to print out.
  3. Today
  4. Do it molds x2 colorant

    I agree about the 2X being difficult - as it's real hard to measure accurately - not such a big deal if you want something BLACK and don't care too much about how much goes in.... but really hard to control if you just want a "couple drops"..... J.
  5. Flying Fish mold

    No one seen these before? Guess I'm going to have to make some.
  6. Do it molds x2 colorant

    Try adding some fine black flake, so the thin appendages will still look darker.
  7. Holographic foil on some lipless blanks.

    would love to know where to or how to complete this process. I have been trying all different types paints, vinyl etc and yet to have any good results. These look fantastic!!! please share
  8. Do it molds x2 colorant

    Baitjunkys, not sure if this is the brand baitjunkys but I just ordered some medium and a few other things from you guys last night, anyways I ended up going with the do it molds essential series. I’m just praying I don’t have to use a half a bottle of blackto just get the color right, I’m using a mold with thin appendages and sometimes the black ends up looking like smoke when some parts of the mold are too thin.
  9. Pre-drilled beads

    If you are looking for quantity in metal beads, Worth has the best quality from what I have seen. If you are looking for plastic beads in small quantities you can get them from Hobby Lobby, Michael's or Jo-Ann Fabrics.
  10. swim jig heads

    I will echo everyone else's answers Trokar swim jig with a heavy hook. I also use that head for chatterbait style lure.
  11. Select Pine

    Yes it seems to be working. I painted 2 baits. One with etex and one without. The etex one is still white and the other is already turning yellow.
  12. Riverman "Floats" New Ideas with Retro Perspective

    Wow, such an informative post. With its help, i can get a high quality essay writing assistance because the research you did is amazing! thanks for being so helpful!
  13. Aluminum injection mold laminates?

    Perhaps you could make a silicon “belly mold” for the bait, pour the belly and then pop it into the mold and inject the top.... lot of mucking around.
  14. Do it molds x2 colorant

    Agree. lureworks/ispikeit hands down best value and one of the best ranges. lurecraft and mf have a strong range too, colours don’t seem as strong though particularly mf.
  15. Pre-drilled beads

    Like this? PS, welcome to TU
  16. I use the Kingsley foils off of eBay. I set my heat gun to ~350*-400*f and as soon as I feel I have hit the 325*f my foil binder needs to work I apply the foil and put it in my carpet lined vise. After it cools just a bit I open the vise and peel off the plastic. I have not seen any evidence of heat causing issues with my foil.
  17. Do it molds x2 colorant

    Lureworks is dependable on there color as well... Consistent....
  18. Do it molds x2 colorant

    Have to agree with this, they are strong but not so strong you can mix it well before using. Some x2 colors are way to thick and don’t mix well.
  19. My DIY centrifugal casting machine

    Well I have it built. It is spinning at 1200 rpms, so way too fast. The plan is now to put in a dimmer switch to adjust the speed. There is a slight wobble thanks to a slightly bent shaft. But for having no real skills when it comes to building stuff like this I am happy. The machine
  20. Do it molds x2 colorant

    When they are out of a color it doesn't show up on their web site.
  21. Select Pine

    envirotex will stop bleed on pine .
  22. Do it molds x2 colorant

    Spikeit/Lureworks colors are good strong colors.
  23. Kingsley is 250 degrees F., +/- 20 degrees. Some China foils are ~360 degrees F. I hope this helps some.
  24. Do it molds x2 colorant

    Does anyone know what happened to all the do it molds x2 colorant? I used to pour baits about 2 years ago and now getting back into it and was looking at purchasing colors and I remembers th x2 was the best but they don’t have all the colors especially the colors I need. Does anyone know what happened or suggest a company that makes really strong colorant, ps. Looking for black, watermelon, blue, green pumpkin, I’m trying to order from all the same place to save money on shipping , thanks
  25. I think it is harder for any adhesive to stick to bare lead than to etex. Like to see you try your adhesive on top of a layer of etex. there are many kinds of transfer foil of which I am not familiar with, but some holographic foils, the holograph can be destroyed by heat. Probably the nail holographic foils I use would be sensitive to heat. I found also that if you rub too hard, you damage the hologram. The kingsley holographid hot stamping foils sold on ebay by dc kelly would probably be more heat resistance although I cannot verify this.
  26. Yesterday
  27. I blundered into the video of someone hot pressing plastic baits that I had talked about above.
  28. 702 substitute

    Since BTS seams unreliable I was looking for a 702 substitute. I emailed about there 736 and there 720 Jr mold. I will post a copy of the email below but basically the 720 and Jr are more similar to the BTS 702 claw wise. However, the 720 is a square body which I personally like better anyway. You have to look closely at the 736 pic on their site to see what she is talking about but one pincer is flat on top/raised on bottom and the other pincer raised on top/flat on bottom to produce what they called a "paddling action." I ordered the 720, 720 Jr and lam plate. When I get some done up I will post a pic in the gallery section. Hope this helps someone out. Hi John! the 702 was designed by Robert Jones at BTSMOLDS. A few years ago we carried his designs. We no longer do. the 736 is similar in shape, but the craws are unique. the craw tips rotate inward on one side and outward on the other. it was designed this way to create more of a paddling action. the 720jr is a smaller version of our 720 the 720/720jr have claws more similar to the 702. I hope this helps! thankyou! sarah -----Original Message----- From: "john williams" Sent: Monday, January 22, 2018 10:04am To: "" Subject: A couple question I found an archive of an old mold you used to make called the 702. I noticed you dont make it anymore but it is real similar to your 736. how do these two molds compare to each other? Also, how does it compare to the 720 Jr. Thanks- John
