  4. blue lead

    it somehow oxidized, either by over heating or some type of zinc was introduced to it.
  5. blue lead

    Nope, I can honestly say I’ve never seen lead turn blue like that. I’ve seen some other issues with lead nowadays but not the blue coloring. Really makes me question where I should source your lead from in the future.
  6. Good Glitter source

    You want .008 Holo silver. I looks amazing. I tried .004 but it was too small. Ebay is cheap and easiest.

  9. blue lead

    I buy pure lead with a analysis I think 99.9% lead. I looked at the analysis and it's all minute amounts of other stuff, I have bought a lot of this lead and usually mix antimony with it for spincasting, never blue I hand poured some jigs and they all turned blue. but it has been a long time since I've seen it turn blue but this is really bad. here's a pic of the cut off sprus anybody ever experience this?

      been doing it for 13 years,,  my day job  has been working me overtime a lot and that doesn't leave enough time to make baits for the 9 shops I had .

       just time to only do baits for friends and family..

       invoice on the way ..  

        is that swim bait the only one you have for eyes?   or do you need different sizes for other stuff ?

    Could you use a cooking spray?
  16. 2.75 inch tube mold/Worm oil

    Nice! I think I will try this myself. Great tip!
  17. Handmade Tubes and Splitter Advice

    I haven't done it enough to comment on the blades. I use food grade mineral oil I got at the local hardware store.
  18. 2.75 inch tube mold/Worm oil

    No just oil from the kitchen. I keep a small bottle of it on the work bench at all times. When a rod needs some slickum I just dip the tip in the oil and go.
  19. good way to fill up truewire slit ?

    So when you guys are talking epoxy for the slot, is it like a 5 minute epoxy or something more like enviortex? I also have a west systems 15minute epoxy which is very strong. The problem is for me that it starts to leak out of the ends especially if my lure isn't flat bottom, creating a huge mess and not completely filling the slot. I've never added sawdust which I would imagine would help. And I usually make 8-14" lures, so 5 minute epoxy in those small tubes would be way to expensive. I usually do a bit of epoxy, then fill the rest up with bondo, but it is time consuming and difficult to end up with a very smooth product. Just looking to make this a bit easier, wondering if anyone has any other tips. I think for myself, I also need a thin kerf blade, that would help a bit also. I cut my slot with a radial arm saw that I made a jig on, that works great.
  20. good way to fill up truewire slit ?

    Here's a little tip on mixing epoxy or any two part glue. I go on my computer and draw different size circles two of the same size next to each other spread them out on the sheet so that you can cut them out into squares 3X3" or what you generally need. Then squeeze out to the circle part A on one and part B on the other, then mix, pretty darn close. I also print on some index or heaver paper. It works for me! Wayne I will have to try micro balloons for a mixer filler.

    Anyone else curious what has happened to the leader-boards? Where did the links go?

    Like Pam cooking spray?
  23. Handmade Tubes and Splitter Advice

    Awesome! I just got my setup for tail splitting working like an engine. It's amazing to me that in 2018 there isn't a standard, go to product for this reason given the popularity for making soft plastics. Sure lurecraft has one but not everyone wants to drop $140 for a press that only does one thing. How long would you say your blades last? Additionally, what kind of oil are you using (if any) on your blades?

    Thanks for the tip! Where can I place a small order for them? I would like to try them out!
  25. mold modifier

    I need to find someone that can / will modify a mold. I have lost touch with the fellow who modified some of my Do -It jig molds, with minor alterations in the past. I have a standard ball head jig mold I want modified to add weight behind the head as desired by an older friend of mine. He is down to his last few and I promised to see what I could do to help him. A cylinder of lead needs to extend from the back of the 5/16 ball head and down the shaft appx 1/2 inch; so that area needs to be machined out in a manner that achieves equal distribution around the shaft. The needed work is beyond my capabilities. I have a prototype jig, the mold and the hooks. I would welcome suggestions on who might be able to help with this project.
  26. 2.75 inch tube mold/Worm oil

    I use regular cooking oil to lube my rods. No smell and works great.
  27. good way to fill up truewire slit ?
