  1. Sometimes I lay the hook as close as I can then use a tooth pick to finish getting it into position.
  2. I would warm the mold, take a cotton swab and cooking oil and lube the tails, inject holding some pressure for a bit and see how it goes before I did any mold modifications. That is how I get my baby brush hog and twin tail grub molds to shoot.
  3. They are super people to deal with and in stock items come quickly.

    Bubbles?

    I hand pour with a 2 piece aluminum. I use silicone cups and 1” copper tubes as spru extenders. The copper tubes are cheap from hdw store. You might give them a try. They have solved some problems for me. Maybe they would for you.

    Bubbles?

    I assume you are doing open pour. Do you have see any bubbles in the plastisol before you pour? How far above the mold do you hold your container? Do you use spru extenders when pouring?
  6. I keep a vile of cooking oil on my bench. Before I start injecting I dip my plungers into it to lube the o rings.
  7. You have received some pretty good advice here. One thing I find important is to keep a notebook handy. Write down every measurement (oz plastisol, drops of colorant, types of glitter and how much). You may want to repeat a formula and I guarantee you won’t be able to remember them.
  8. I believe that I would contact them about the 1 year warranty.

    Bill material?

    This guy is a professional finish carpenter and cabinet maker. My guess is that he will want to design his own.

    Bill material?

    Thanks. I wasn’t sure if lexan was what was still used. I used to do some bill replacement with it. I will tell him so he can grab a sheet of it when he is ready.
  11. A friend of mine has several squaer bill crank baits with the bills broken. He is planning to replace them. What should he buy to make the bills?
  12. I agree with smalljaw. However I use the R wire only. In order to help keep its shape and prolong its life, I wrap braided line around the R then I tie and glue it. That doesn’t have any effect on the way it performs and makes it a lot more durable.
  13. I have never seen a Lee pot that did not clog up. I don’t know why.
  14. I have coated pop molds for a for a friend. I used Bondo fiberglass resin. It is what I use to make my open pour molds. It worked just fine.
