  2. Aluminum injection mold laminates?

    Yep. I did not see the part about how the mold is set up. Plates would be worthless.

  4. Aluminum injection mold laminates?

    Laminate plates will not work to get a back/belly laminate when the left and right halves are in each mold plate, you will get the left half one colour and the right half the other colour.
  5. Crankbait Help

    Hey guys - Hoping I can get some help here... Tried a couple of new muskie lures I made and they run a bit off. They seem to want to "tip" on their side when I increase speed on the retrieve, and end up almost blowing out of the water. I didn't put any ballast weight in these, and the line tie is in the middle of the lip. If I added some ballast weight and put the line tie closer to the body of the lure would this help out? Maybe a slightly longer lip? I know this isn't a great amount of info to go off of, but I'm going to start some more and experiment. The above is what I thought would help the problem, am I on the right track?? Thanks **I have some slow motion videos, but they are on my phone. Is it possible to upload a video to this post??

    MEK

    MEK should do it. I know acetone or butyl acetate doesn't break it down very well.

  9. Who's making a good injector now?

    You can also make a spacer to block off a few cavities & just shoot a couple of worms at a time.

  12. Bluegills on display

    I haven’t messed with painting baits for too long, being in Alaska, bass baits go unused. These are going to be used in Texas and Missouri..
  13. 3d printed lures

    Fusion 360 to design the lure, and makerbot replicator 2x... dont know the cost, I only designed it as a prototype in order to make a mold from.

    Any chance you had an opportunity to print it out?

    You will never get the whole amount out of an injector. At the end you will get plastic that has started to cool to much. Your best bet is see if Basstackle will sell you two of there 10oz one with a Twinjector set up. It will be big but will work well and give you plenty of Plastic. Not sure what you use to heat Plastic but it will work in a presto just fine. Both of the injectors with the same color.

    What are you trying to do with it? Could be a few of them that might work for you
  17. Avid bass tackle

    Ha s anyone recently done business with Avid? First reviews were not good. I am wondering whether things have gotten better.
  18. Solvent

    What is an effective solvent for breaking down soft plastic ? Neither alcohol or mineral spirits paint thinner does the job. MEK, Tolulene, Naptha?
  19. Who's making a good injector now?

    Could you use a twin injector with the same plastic in both sides? That would give you 12 oz. of plastic.

  23. Making A Jerkbait Part 1 & 2

    G'day guys, I finally finished up a little jerkbait project I've been working on for quite some time. Here are part 1 and 2. Since the lure will be sent overseas to Australia to be tested on Barramundi, part three will be filmed by a good friend of mine to record the results with this lure. Let me know what you think!

    How are the open pour ones from lure parts online?
  25. Who's making a good injector now?

    I just unpacked my mold. taped the spru and filled half with water but the tails were mostly empty and i was ia 5oz of water. So a solid 10 oz might work but more than likely me a little short. Ill call bass tackle tommorrow and see if they will make one a little bigger 11-12oz
  26. Tackle Show Opinions

    I know of at least one site that tried that. It folded because there weren't enough builders who wanted to sell online, and not enough web traffic to the site to sell what was there. They eventually gave the site away, and it was renamed, but it didn't do any better. I think word of mouth doesn't work on the internet, unless it's on a social media website. We all love what we do, and we come here to learn and to share with other like-minded people, but I don't think the majority of members here are interested in pursuing bait building as a paying venture.
