  1. Basecoat On Resin Baits

    Did you use a release agent on your molds when you were casting your parts? I do, and i was advised to soak the parts in a bleach/water solution for about an hour to remove the release agent. You will have to be careful which brand of bleach you use as some turn the parts yellowish. Scott
  2. Old Style Lure Props For Sale

    I have some extra sets of old stlye lure props and teardrop shaped screw eyes for sale. They are reproductions, not antique. They have the center hub just like the old underwater minnows. The front and rear blades are counter rotating so the lure does not spin in the water. The screw eyes are stainless steel for strength. These can be used on your lures to actually fish with or for your reproduction minnows. They churn like crazy in the water. They are available while my supply lasts.Email me directly for info.Thanks! email: dakotaminnows@msn.com

  6. Buzz bait forms

    Hey Tally, Pre made forms are pretty reasonably priced. If it were me, I would rather spend time on the painting and finishing of the buzzbaits. Good luck. Scott
  7. Where to look for Tin

    This may sound weird, but a long time ago I bought a bunch of old beat up pewter dishes, cups, and pans from a scrap yard. pewter is a fancy name for tin. I do believe there is a small percentage of lead in the old pewter ware.
  8. Looking for ice fishing jig molds

    Watch out who you send your stuff to in NY. I cant remember the guys name but I sent masters off to NY to have molds made several years ago and got ripped off.He kept putting me off and coming up with excuses until I finally gave up.I lost my 500 bucks and my mold masters. I also had a bad experience with a NY company that sold lead and tin.I think they have a poor business philosophy out there. They just want your money.period.
  9. How are teardrop ice jigs made???

    i think rosin core solder is what you will want to use.If you just use regular solder and flux paste the hook will corode a little while later where it meets the blade.it will look likw rust.
  10. What do you use for an overcoat?

    If you want to do any quantity of jigs, try a 2 part marine epoxy clear coat.2 -3 coats dipped or airbrushed and your jig will be very tough and chip resistant.
  11. Jig heads and molds

    Have you thought about making your own out of high temperature rtv silicone? :
