  1. How long is the working time before it begins to set? Can you add something to extend the working time?
  2. Thanks. Back in the 60's and 70's, when we used it on construction jobs we called it Durham's Rock Hard Putty. Good stuff.
  3. I am serious. You must be a pretty good tier to have them hold. I'm jealous.
  4. So I put my reading glasses on, and I see you used skirt tabs. I apologize for not seeing it before. I'm glad you have had such good success without glue. You must be a much better tier than I, because I've always had to either use glue/head cement/clear nail polish, or wire afterwards to keep my skirts from coming apart.
  5. I suggest you take a look at the commercial spinnerbaits that are being sold right now..Tacklewarehouse.com has a big selection.
  6. Kris, It looks to me like you're using skirts with an already attached collar. I make my skirts from skirt tabs, and thread without either some glue, or an overwrap with 28 gauge wire, don't hold up to fishing for me.
  7. Just be sure and wrap the can in something. Aluminum gets hot quick.
  8. Bait Junky used to sell degassed plastic. That was all I used.
  9. I am a hobby pourer, and only pour for myself and a fishing buddy, but this is what works for me. I also only heat a cup or so at a time. To hand pour stuff, I pinch the mouth shut with big chip clip, leaving a small opening at one end to pour from, and I always wear gloves (thank you Frank).
  10. This might work. It's what I heat my plastisol in: https://www.amazon.com/Norpro-Silicone-Measuring-Flexible-Dishwasher/dp/B002MKP24K
  11. If it swims as good as it looks, you're in business!
  12. I've found that hitting my black sharpie with a hair dryer helps it to not run. With red and chartreuse sharpies, they will still run, unless I shoot a coat of Createx gloss clear over them. When I dip and hang a bait by the nose with red sharpie gills without the gloss, the red bleeds down a little, and makes a neat bleeding bait effect. This old photo shows some bleeding on the right hand bait. At the time I was using AC1315 concrete sealer, and evidently didn't heat set the red well enough, because it bled a little. I did other baits at that time with more pronounced bleeding, but I evidently didn't take any pics. http://www.tackleunderground.com/community/gallery/image/5484-5-inch-gliderwalkers/
  13. How well does it swim? Does it "raise a rukus"?
  14. I think you may need to add a couple of spacer beads behind the clevis so your blade can spin more freely.
