  1. Hello Guys, I was wondering if anyone had the plans and info on building a fluorescent green fishing light. I want to build a couple of the 4 foot lights. I know you have to have some kind of 120 to 12 volt converter or ballast. I would appreciate any help.

    Pouring Open Molds

    You can use a pyrex 100 ml beaker to pour from. Much better control and smaller flow spout. You can get those at a science supply/chemical supply place. If you know a compounding pharmacist, he can order you some of them. They aren't very expensive. That's what I used at first with success.

  7. I paid for a year. I don't know how much in money and time it takes to run this site, but I am sure it is not cheap in time or money. Jerry, maybe you could give potential members a 30 day trial or something like that so they can see the value of the site, especially the ones just coming to the site. I could get by without TU, but I sure would miss all they guys. It is more than a website, it is kind of a watering hole where baitmakers meet. Cal

    How to make a 2 color tube

    I do 2 color tubes using a vertical dip method. I dip the rod the full length in the tail color. I then dip the rod in the body color down to where I want the tail to start. I normally dip the rod again in the body color down to where the tail starts. This covers the tail color in the body area especially if you are using a tail color that is quite different from your body color such as a blue tube with a chartreuse tail (one I use a lot). Let me know if I can be of more help.

    Any one making stand up jigs?

    I got a tutorial on multicolor powder painting from Cadman. I really like it. Flippinfool is right, that should solve your problem.

    screw locks?

    Barlowstackle.com has them. I believe jannsnetcraft.com has them as well. I am sure there are others, but those will do for a start.
