    I run all my leftover through a meat grinder then remelt.it works great. Just get a cheap one from a yard sale. (Mine came from harbor freight.)

    Base pins

    Just ordered my guards. Will go to bass pro for some lead. Thanks for the info smalljaw. That helps a lot. I usually buy my jigs but couldn't pass this mold up. I've been pouring plastic for several years but this is new. Thanks to everyone for your help.

    Base pins

    I picked this mold up from an estate auction, it didn' have anything with it so I'm starting out green ( really green.) . I have never poured lead so I've been reading and watching some videos when I saw the base pins. Is there a standard size for a 3/8 round head mold? Don't want to reduce the size. Also saw where a guy used a drill bit in place of a pin but he modified the mold.

    How do I find the size base pin for a 3/8 hilts mold for a RH 38-2 fiber guard?

    reducing bait memory

    If they are injected, I leave them hanging for 2 days, for hand pour I lay them on wax paper for 2 days. No problems so far.

    Marketing Tips?

    Be patient. I told my partners when you own your own business, you only have to work 1/2 a day. Just pick what 12 hours you want to work. Just dont try to grow to fast, take your time.

    What is the best dye to use?

    So if you send someone a package 2 day priority with conformation and it takes the post office 4 days, is it your fault? I don't think so. You can't blame the business for USPS shortcomings. Once it leaves their facility, they have no control over shipping.

    Laminate plate

    You can also pick up aluminum flashing at lows or home depot. Real cheap and easy to work with.

    Twin injector?

    Always get the largest you can afford. ( you will need it as you increase the number of molds you have.)

    Legal Help

    The bottom line is to do your own due diligence with a tax professional. The government WILL get his. Good luck to you all.

    Legal Help

    Also check yor state tax code for inventory tax. Raw material is a tax deduction but once you make a lure, it's a salable product and inventory tax would be due.

    Cutting musky sized tube skirts

    The roller blades work great. We also have carpet blades mounted in a can crusher from harbor freight and use gum rubber to press against.
