  1. Not identical, but close. https://www.btsmolds.com/swim-bait/608-swim-bait https://www.btsmolds.com/swim-bait/609-swim-bait https://www.btsmolds.com/swim-bait/7-swim-bait-2-cavity
  2. This is why I encourage members to go back and read old posts. Using a meat grinder to recycle plastics was first mentioned (according to a quick search) back in 2008 by a hobbyist turned commercial baitmaker. Rick
  3. If you're not the lead sled dog the view never changes...

  4. Nice baits, Wil. Wish my first ones looked that good. Welcome to the addiction! Rick
  5. Hope everyone had a great Xmas & wish everyone & their families a healthy, safe, happy new year! Rick
  6. Thought for the day:

    If you aren't the lead sled dog, the view never changes...

  7. Erick - If you go back to the original thread where JSC announced the passing of Bojon (www.tackleunderground.com/community/topic/27857-bojon), among the replies, two members said they had a copy of Bojon's DVD: Smallmouthaholic and trfishin. Maybe reach out to them? I don't know how much effort you've put into this search, but you might try researching old threads to see who Bojon communicated with and see if anyone else might have gotten a copy. It'll be time consuming, but I guess it depends on how badly you really want it... And there's no guarantee you're going to find anything. Good luck. Rick
  8. We all know that Bojon (Ron) has passed away. I did a little research and found that JSC (the member with a birthdate from the 30s) has also passed away as of June 2017 in Florida. RIP both. I sincerely hope that we all warmly remember these two members and keep in mind that they always selflessly shared their respective knowledge and experiences with all who indulge in lure making. I hope we all continue their legacy of sharing and respect. Maybe someday before it becomes "lost to the ages", someone will share the Bojon DVD. I'm sure Ron would want that. Rick
  9. Curiosity question: does the hard pack of the plastic vary by degree of hardness? In other words, does the hardest formula hard pack more than the softest? Is it the quantity of hardener in the plastic that affects it? Rick

  11. Welcome to the madness. Most of these businesses offer color and glitter in addition to plastisol. Visit their websites to see what the have to offer.

  12. There is a healthy variety of plastic and their unique characteristics lend themselves to different applications/uses. Following is a list of many suppliers. Yes, pricing will be all over the place, but some baitmakers keep a supply of several brands on hand for different baits. Many plastic suppliers will send a sample if you just pay shipping, so you can try different brands. Good luck in your search.

  13. For what its worth, here's what I do. I buy LC plastic in 5gal bucket. When it arrives, I use my mixer in a drill and blend the bucket for a full 20 minutes, stopping occasionally to scrape the bottom with a dowel looking for any separated material to mix back in. After the mixing, I use a plastic cup and funnel to transfer from the 5gal pail to five separate 1gal containers. I use Arizona brand tea jugs - slightly clearer than milk jugs, but heavier plastic. I put a swatch of kitchen type platic wrap (doubled for extra thickness) over the opening before screwing on the cap. Shaking the 1gal jug is not difficult, and pours easily into my Pyrex for heating. Just my 2cents. Rick SE CT
