  6. Shrinking tube stencil?

    Getting both sides to match can be done - even by those who do not have a great eye. There are always points of reference on a lure blank. They will be transfered to the stencil you make - like where the lat line meets the gill plate and the rear end of the blank. So here is what I do. I create my clam-shell stencil and cut the stencil on one side. Then I tape some tissue paper to the hinged part. Next I put the paper between a lure blank and the cut part, close the clam-shell, and paint the paper with dark detail paint. Next mark two reference points on the paper. Then remove the blank, push the paper to the other side, reinsert the blank, and line up those reference points, and back-light it. You can now use a sharpie to duplicate that pattern on the other side. What can I say, those who lack the talent to do things by "eye" have to compensate with other talents.
  7. Shrinking tube stencil?

    I have tried with partial success. IMHO you would need a true vacuu-form machine that preheats the plastic sheets. Or possibly preheat the sheets on a frame in your oven. Also you would need to create a positive slightly bigger than your lure. Also since the sheet would have to stretch the full depth of your lure (instead of just 1/2 needed for stencils), you would have to have a strong vacuum and a good seal.
  8. Videos for R Bends/Hagens Tool Loops Only?

    I have a Hagens tool and a tool that I believe is for R bends but I am struggling to find a good video to show how to make the spinnerbait bend. Mine are not very tight and do not look right for some reason. Help would be appreciated. Can I use the Hagens tool for those or does it only do loops? Thanks!
  9. Spinnerbaits in Saltwater

    Pete, Zman is now making a bucktail chatter bait that is sold exclusively in Dick's Sporting Goods. It may be on Zman's website though, would be something worth checking out for ideas maybe.

  18. spinnerbait blades

    Wow, that looks like the blades were stacked together and then ran over or compressed in some manner. That looks a lot like what I call "oil canning". Because the blades are normally stacked once made, and extremely strong at that point, that leads me to believe it was at the factory, and a one time incident. Weird, very weird.
  19. NAZDAR Pigments

    No question, It is 99% the same stuff, Most plastic manufactures manufacture screen printing ink as well.....
  20. NAZDAR Pigments

    Do a Bleed test.
  21. NAZDAR Pigments

    The real question is about at least for me.
  22. NAZDAR Pigments

    I just got some. I cut it with softener. Looks good. I am going to give it a try this weekend. It looks REALLY strong. 5 grams in 100ml of softner (Neon Yellow) is completely opaque. This stuff is made to mix with clear Plastisol base for screen printing. They have 5 neon colors.
  23. Crankbait Help

    Pretty sure ballast will do it, but next we can work on the lip/line tie. Almost positive the ballast will fix that. Ballast between the first and 2nd hook on that design, slightly more toward the first hook.
  24. NAZDAR Pigments

    Liquid pigment, the powder is not gonna color your plastic, Powder pigment has to be ran thru a mill. Or it has to be a dye, so it actually disolves and disperses. Any powdered pigment i have ever used just leaves dots... Reason they run it thru the mill... So it disperses with the carrier..
  25. NAZDAR Pigments

    Are you using the ink? or the pigment powder?
  26. Printed Bags

    China, IE Alibaba

  28. NAZDAR Pigments

    I have experimented with them all, Nazdar is USA also, they are way to transparent.. Reason they print white underlays on anything dark.
