  2. Sealing a chugger

    I might have to go get some extra long cotton swabs from the drug store. I think thats what I'll have to try. I'l report back when I get them sealed one way or anther. Thanks Bob!
  3. Jiggy Bling

    I slotted an egg sinker to accept the hook then beat on it with a hammer to shape, not fancy but it worked. A little super glue, some abalone and three coats of epoxy, hand cut mylar strips.

  5. Muskie hook hanger size (greenhorn)

    we use wire0.62. .building cost effective in numbers of lures wire is less expensive then screw eyes...as for screws its an easier process. .both will hold up to musky,s..

    Really like the "full" skirt. Gives that puppy some body. Another spinner bait for lilly pad fields on the St John`s. Very nice.
  7. Clear coat with Gorilla clear glue

    Gorilla glue needs moisture to cure and expands like foam. Wont flow out smooth and wont be very clear. Basically wont work
  8. Large 30 degree Swim Jig hook

    The Mustad 32850 is a heavy wire that comes in a 6/0. The only other one I know of that goes higher is the Mustad 91768 but I wouldn't call it a heavy wire but in an 8/0 or 9/0 I would think it would be heavy enough.
  9. Large 30 degree Swim Jig hook

    I don't know of any larger than 5/0. But, I would think that 5/0 would be plenty large enough for pike.
  10. Large 30 degree Swim Jig hook

    Does anyone know if there are 30 degree , preferably round bend heavy swim jig hooks in 6/0, 7/0, 8/0 sizes? I plan to try to use with the Do IT Bullet Bass Jig, larger size for Pike/Musky jigs? I see plenty of 60 degree and 90 degree hooks in these larger sizes, but I only see 28 and 30 degree hooks up to 5/0. Would prefer black nickel, but I am open to others. Any help is appreciated? Thanks in advance! Duckman
  11. Clear coat with Gorilla clear glue

    Had anyone used gorilla clear glue for clear coating baits. Got a bottle to do a couple of test on baits. Thanks for any advice or knowledge of clear coat.

  14. Chartreuse plastisol getting darker

    Frank has a YouTube video where he uses the griddle to keep the plastisol at a usable temp. You can also get a meat grinder from harbor freight and grind the sprue, it will heat with less time, and the heat stabilizer is a must.
  15. Plumber's Lead

    Some people ask their local mechanic to save them used tire weights.

  17. Wanted to buy Molds or Existing Business

    Looking to purchase no longer used molds or an existing Business. Looking for frogs, mice, rats, trailer and swim bait molds. Please message me @ blackwidowtackleco@gmail.com
  18. Chartreuse plastisol getting darker

    look up frank an how he use his griddle.
  19. Sealing a chugger

    You can thin glue type epoxies like Devcon with a few drops of denatured alcohol. I don’t think thinner decoupage epoxies like Etex would need it. Just push a swab soaked in the epoxy through the hole from both ends several times and you should have good coverage.
  20. 1/2oz Classic Twin Spin

    Real nice work, smalljaw. Pretty fancy wire bending to attach the swivels, too!
  21. Chartreuse plastisol getting darker

    Short bursts of heat in the 20-30 second length along with smaller batches and heat stabilizer is all that even has a chance for me along with white.
  22. Chartreuse plastisol getting darker

    for me when i had this problem the answer was not to reheat. smaller batches and more molds. maybe add a presto pot to your setup! just keep it stirred an dont put the sprues back in the hot plastic. you have to get rid of the plastic fast. the microwave is overheating you plastic its the nature of how the microwave works.

    havent tried it but looks like it might work https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZGvLXPL4GTw
  24. Hand Poured Veins

    cool baits i was talking about hand pour baits
  25. Chartreuse plastisol getting darker

    You'll need to add some heat stabilizer when re heating often, especially for temperamental colors like chartreuse. Most places who sell plastic will also sell stabilizer. I used to set a couple gallons aside with added stabilizer. A little goes a long way; about one ounce per gallon is all that's needed.
  26. Hand Poured Veins

    Not sure if this is what your looking for or not. But hopefully it can help. https://youtu.be/MLe02__bm74
  27. Any suggestions on how to reinforce ribbontail worms to make them "tougher" yet still remain flexible.
  28. Homemade plastisol

    Baitjunkys , I am quite aware of that but when certain chemicals in the pvc resin can add lot or a little stickiness which is variable on the company that produces it or how it was made.. Also some formulas of plastisol contain tiny droplets of lubrication (oils or glazes) that are released when it cools removing the stickiness temporarily or permanently. I know some on plastisols, but far more on organics or bioplastics.
