  1. I have a gallon of LureCraft 60/40 blend plastic (#548) about 6 years old that was part of a 5gal bucket I broke down to 1gal jugs. Its been in my unheated garage since I got it, through temp ranges of -5F to 100F. When I broke it down I put a patch of plastic wrap over the mouth of the jug before tightly screwing on the cap. Anyone have experience using old LC plastic? Should I expect a yellowing issue if I use this next spring? Thanks in advance for any info. Rick
  2. Here's a little more info on various materials available for mold making. Maybe old news for some, but may help others. https://hirstarts.com/casting/us.html Rick SE CT
  3. Lm22 - a fan is a good idea. Doesn't need to be blowing 100mph AT you and your work area. I agree with Seakarp's suggestion to have a fan close to your work but PULLING air from work area and blowing AWAY from you. Also - the mask in your link should be fine. When you go for replacement cartridges, be sure to get ones for organic vapor /acid gas. Rick

  5. I found this helpful when I got started about 15 years ago. I understand that some things may not be as current any more, but by and large I think it's still reasonably correct and hope it offers food for thought and may help others understand things a little better. The formatting got a little messed up in spots. I tried to edit it, but it's still a little long. Sorry.

Usually, exposure levels are much higher in perso

  9. 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

  11. Nice baits, Wil. Wish my first ones looked that good. Welcome to the addiction! Rick

  14. 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.
