    FET - constructive sale price

    Good info I'm with you, don't want to pay any more than I have to but maybe it was for a good cause. the way I understand it all the FET collected goes back to the states at a formula based on how many fishing licenses sold. Here is where some of the money went in Missouri for a fish hatchery. https://www.fws.gov/fieldnotes/regmap.cfm?arskey=10370 another place says they "producing nearly 15 million fish per year." the way I understand it, they provide/sell fish to other surrounding states also. so this helps promote fishing.

    blue lead

    Wikipedia says " When freshly cut, lead is bluish-white; it tarnishes to a dull gray color when exposed to air" I don't have this problem (Blue) with scrap lead . the longer stuff sets the darker it gets. I wasn't going to paint this. Oh well. just curious other peoples's experience. Thanks,

    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?

    FET - markup vs margin

    i went to a meeting a few years ago at ICAST and it was about FET. they said that you pay FET on your lowest established selling price., and they stressed the established selling price to prove you are not trying to get around paying the right amount of tax. I have a wholesale business and a retail business. I have established prices for wholesale customers. I pay 10% on all of those sales. I also sell to my retail store at wholesale price with 10% FET added. then when I sell at retail FET is already paid.

    Problem with incomplete pours PLEASE HELP

    All of those suggestions are good and necessary but it looks to me like the collar in the mold is too small for that hook. is that an oversize hook?

    Silicone Mold Issue

    some talc powder might help. take a rag with some powder on it and dab each side including the gate running in the cavity, turn it upside down and tap on the mold to get ride of any small piles of powder in the cavitity, then put it togeather and pour. maybe letting set a little longer before demolding.
