  1. Plastic Sticking To Mold

    I have two aluminum hand pour stick molds and I remelted some year old sticks because they were too stiff. I added a little softener and plastic to the cut up sticks, melted the plastic, stirred it up good and poured it into my two molds. I went to pull apart the molds and what I found was a gooey mess in both molds. I assume I added too much softener so I scraped as much of the remelted plastic as I could back into my cup and added a little plastic and reheated. While my plastic was reheating I took salt and a wire brush to clean up the remaining goo from my molds put them back together and poured the plastic in the molds. This time when I took the molds apart the plastic stuck to one mold and not the other. I can't figure out why the plastic would stick to one mold and not the other. Should I add some type of release agent to the sticky mold?
  2. Quick Salt Question

    I buy popcorn salt by the case from my local party supply store. With popcorn salt I found no reason to grind/flour salt.
  3. Worm Oil

    Salt is not as messy as oil and your worms will not dry out plus it keeps baits from sticking together. I tried baby oil when I first started pouring and my worms turned stiff in a couple days.
  4. Salt

    I buy my popcorn salt by the case from a local party supply store that sells commercial type popcorn machines. Break out the yellow pages and call around.

    What mold did you use? I like the design of that worm...
  6. substitution for worm oil

    If all you are trying to do is keep your baits from sticking together bag them with salt instead. Less mess and easier obtained.
  7. What to order?

    I like to make color combinations with glitter and hilite that I have never seen before. Scott
  8. What to order?

    There are alot of opinions on this I'm sure. I would add green pumpkin, pumpkinseed, purple, black, red and some bright colors like pink, yellow and white. After a while you will find that there is always a color out there that you would like to pour and you will keep ordering coloring and glitter. After all it is an addiction... Scott

  10. Swimbait Plastic

    Just curious to hear what plastic everyone is using to make their swimbaits. I have one of Bobs 2 piece molds and I used Ozark to make some baits and they were too soft. Was looking at trying either Lurecraft regular or MF regular. Just looking for suggestions. Scott
  11. Worm oil alternative?

    What are you using the worm oil for? If it is for packaging just roll them in salt. Scott
