    Storm Lure Kits

    Took the kids to Target to get some stuff, and noticed that they have Storm lure kits, and the most interesting thing - they each have a Thunderstick and Wiggle Wart blank in them, I'd love to get my hands on some of the Warts without having to buy a $15 kit!! They've got Warts right under that for $4 each, could buy 4 and repaint them for that

    spray on clear coat

    Get yourselves some MSDS sheets on ANY clear you get, especially the Urethane clears. Is is NOT to be played around with, and really shouldn't be sold to inexperienced people like us. They contain icocyanates, not sure on the spelling, but look it up. It's deadly, is absorbed in through lungs, nose, even your SKIN, and no, just gloves are not enough. It's tough stuff to handle. If I am not mistaken, there is even some in Dick Nite, at least according to the definition of Polyurethane according to Wikipedia Use what you want, but please protect yourself, I don't claim to be completely safe, but I try, as I need to be around to finish watching my kids grow up, and you should too.

    Thermochromic Paints to change colors in water?

    I am not sure the paints you're referring to work that quickly.

    Enhancing the trolling motor fuses

    They make circuit breakers for marine use. Switching to blade fuses will work if you get some rated for marine use. I would leave well enough alone. If the TM is your only problem, then the breaker should fix that, and the upgrade will just be time spent.

    Top the mold off once it starts to sink. Don't wait so long on the laminates to pour the second color.

    Seems they are having a garage sale, the site states they are blems, not labeled correctly, etc, but they carry a full warranty, I've ordered a few to check out, the prices are right. http://www.badgerairbrush.com/garagesale.htm

    Discounts for bait shops?

    I do not like to see it either, and for the guys that can't figure it out, they end up quitting because they sell baits, but never have any money! I never understood the sell it cheaper than the store mentality. Seems that so many are doing it, they've unwittingly gotten the public trained to buy on price, not quality, they missed the point of offering handmade premium tackle altogether.

    What clear to use between layers of createx?

    They do make a clear

    Discounts for bait shops?

    I wouldn't go any lower than your price minus the bag cost, as you will not get any retail business out of that deal with no packaging

    Need advice for High Volume Stick Pouring

    Ryan is dead on, sometimes all the extra stuff just gets in the way. You seem to be unsure as to if you have them sold or if your deal is gonna happen, etc. My suggestion would be to see what you can do without adding anything extra, except for maybe molds, you can never have too many molds, then see where it goes from there. If you're gonna be a hand-pourer, be one, if you want to sell bulk baits, that's a different ballgame!

    I suppose you'd have to ask ChadK if that answered his question or not, it seems the purpose was to know how to go about doing a thousand baits a week.
