    #11 pork frog look alike?

    you guys are making me go to a direction I wasn't thinking about. I never poured plastic, but I am now thinking maybe I should. I looked at the mold at lurecraft for $15... that is cheap enough and I am guessing the "head" is thick like a #11 frog? Now that you all have me interested in this and I know nothing about pouring plastic....... what am I going to need to do this? and a little tutorial would be nice. I looked at the tutorials here and did not see one for a beginner. Also a good supplier for what I will need. the end result will be black and brown colors and maybe white heavy salted how to place this "mesh" in the plastic ** I am a fast learner but I am sure I will have many questions!! Also........... that mold is a 5 cavity mold. would I be better off with several molds? I ask this because I have no idea how much plastic has to be prepare to pour or the wait time for the plastic to "cure"??? Thanks in advance Tally

    #11 pork frog look alike?

    the red dot is where the hook goes through. the yellow line is where the hooks rips through the plastic and becomes junk. That is a zoom frog. The trailer grip you mentioned will not help on this trailer. I still have a few #11's ...... i might have to get into plastic lol..............if that happens, the questions will be flying!!

    #11 pork frog look alike?

    woohoo..... now we are getting somewhere spoonminnow!! I thought someone on here would have made a mold (copy) of the #11........ I use to use the 101 frog as well. want to make me some? pm me and we can get the details. The tails being poured thin is fine with me. I think the body being thicker will hold up and not have the hook pull through the plastic so easily. This is exactly what makes TU such a great place!! thank you Tally

    Soaking Airbrush Parts

    there you go.... any type of jar that has a good lid and seal will work. I know nothing about Air Brush Restorer, but years ago I tried everything. Blades and Baits (JT) turned me on to simple green and my issues were solved. Just an idea for you as I have no intention on telling anyone what to do. lol

    thanks for that info Dave. Whatever the reason i think it sucks. lol............ I know someone on here has played with the plastic enough to do what I am looking for. maybe I am barking up the wrong tree ?? If what I want is impossible I may try a Yammamoto hula grub twin tail to see if that gives me the same action. at least they hold up better than the #11 plastic look a likes...... any thoughts? Travis, the cheese cloth idea might work, but I doubt I would mess with that.

    I would be interested in the uncle josh #11 in black and in brown. I could kick myself in the rear end for not stocking up when they stop making it. At one time you could buy the big jar called "pint of pig"........ memories if not, I am interested in plastic. just a tougher plastic that the hook won't tear as easy.

    #11 pork frog look alike?

    I was told that the pork was getting to expensive. don't quote that lol...... It has forced me to use the plastic look alike but not even close in my opinion. As long as you didn't let the pork dry out, took it off your hook and put it back in the bottle, it would last a long time. Come on you plastic "gurus" help a member out lol............ I never poured plastic but I might have to start lol

    #11 pork frog look alike?

    thanks Mark, I haven't found one at any of the stores that are durable. That is why I am looking for someone here on the site that makes them. The "store" bought ones seems to rip to easy from where the hook is inserted. Besides, the good stuff is made right here on this site. I sure miss uncle josh pork!!

    #11 pork frog look alike?

    anyone here making #11 pork frog look alike in plastic? I am looking for one that is a heavier (tougher) plastic than whats available at the store. They rip way to easy. Heavily salted in brown and in black. Tally

    Obsolete powder paint

    Thanks Allen. I will try to find him. I should have bought a bunch of it as everything seems to take its course and become obsolete.

    Pressure regulator

    I agree with MT204.... the regulator i have has 5-10-15-20 and so on psi. It is more precise. for the most I shoot lacquer so it may be thinner but even my powder paint brush never hits 10psi

    Pressure regulator

    your in line regulator should show the pressure that you want to the airbrush. Don't know why yours is not. 15 psi is alot... what kind of paint are you shooting? I normally have mine,3,4,5 maybe 6psi............ even when I spray powder I am under 10 psi
