  1. Past hour
  2. My DIY centrifugal casting machine

    Quick followup: I looked at the details of the motor I used. It will be difficult to put a dimmer switch on since it is a single phace capacitor start motor. That being said I can control the rpm's with the drive pulley size and add an idler pulley to maintain tension.
  3. Flying Fish mold

    Not sure what size you are looking for. Jacobs make a 2" crappie lure that might be what you are looking for. this is the only mold of that style I have seen. If you are looking for a large saltwater style lure I am of no help at all. http://stores.jacobsbaits.com/stinger-shark-2-10-cavity-mold/
  4. Holographic foil on some lipless blanks.

    I don't think it's out of line for fellow members of a custom lure painting website to ask how someone did something to a bait.
  5. Printed Bags

    Plates are generally one time fee, per size of bag... Reorders no plate charge.
  6. Holographic foil on some lipless blanks.

    With the amount of baits seen foiled someone is selling them. Guys, I’ve done some research and what i found was they use a Heat Press for Tee Shirts to apply foil on shirts, my guess is he did the same with baits. Heat presses aren’t cheap so an investment in one would obviously expect a return on investment for a business. Use Google for more info...its there.
  7. NAZDAR Pigments

    Works great. No bleeding.
  8. Printed Bags

    So was the price $70 x 4 plates ($280dls) +$0.088 per bag? Stephen

    Hello everyone, I actually work for the originator of the Bumble Bee Baits. Let me know what you are looking for and I may be able to help.
  11. Bumble Bee Spinnerbaits

    Hello everyone, I actually work for the originator of Bumble Bee baits. what questions do you have and I will pass them along and try to get you some answers.
  12. I have several Sahara 2500 spinning reels and some are starting to bind up and become hard to reel under a load. I have rebuilt 2 with new drive gears, I think its only a matter of time before they start doing the same thing. The gears are aluminum and wore down. Some internet chatter would suggest that the later models have resolved a internal clearance problem. Have you had the same problems?? Should I consider replacing with later Shimano reels, or go with another brand. I try to stay in the 70-120$ range. I loved them in the beginning but just seems to be the same problem again and again. Please comment and thanks in advance.
  13. Holographic foil on some lipless blanks.

    X2 on the how to....... looks great, and I have also been trying to do the same thing with limited success.
  14. Anyone know if BTS is taking orders?

    Thanks for sharing that info, very helpful. I figure the guy has to eat and pay the bills so I'm sure he's doing what business he can to stay afloat. He just needs to take care of past orders first imo. I ordered 4 small molds back in Nov 2016. I would think he could practically do them in his sleep.
  15. Holographic foil on some lipless blanks.

    Sign me up on the how to train. I've been using foil tape and an exacto knife. Takes way too long.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. Flying Fish mold

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

    Try adding some fine black flake, so the thin appendages will still look darker.
  20. 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
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
  25. 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!
  26. 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.
  27. 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.
