  1. It depends on how many molds you are shooting at a time. When I shoot during the winter I use 6 molds so after the first 2 rounds, my molds stay warm enough I don't usually have a problem. If you are doing open pour, it may be beneficial to keep them heated as open molds cool faster than injection molds.
  2. Heat stabilizer will help. Add a few drops before reheating and stir a few times. Hope this helps
  3. I use sea salt and grind it.( but not with the wifes blender)
  4. If you are sealing them in bags that have the zip losk seal, you may have trouble as the vacuum seal would be below the zip seal. As for the baits getting kinked or folded up, just give it a try. A lot would depend on how many baits per bag, are you doing bulk bags?
  5. I have the same set up. Never could get it to work right so it's collecting dust on the back shelf. Good idea, just don't think the glue gun is heavy duty enough.
  6. Peel it out and then use vegetable oil to wipe them down.
  7. Black, chartreuse, and fuchsia.
  8. You may have to much black color.
  9. Yeah, I would say its burnt. Anytime you get smoke, the plastic is to hot and needs to be cooled off before burning beyond use. I would try stirring as you heat it to keep a more uniform temperature until you get a feel for how fast the bunsen burner heats up.
  10. You may want to take you design and idea to your local college and talk to some engineers. You may be pleasantly surprised by what they come up with and also how cost efficient it will be.
  11. I like that idea. I'll have to try it out as I go from 1 cup to a fry daddy. Just seems as if there is no in between anymore Haha.
  12. You can also use aluminum flashing. Pick up some from lowes or home depot cheap.
  13. I've never tried to make my own molds so I can't comment on that but I do have CNC molds from just about all the supplier's and the quality is 2nd to none. Pick your favorite lure and order away.
  14. Yup, the sand worked perfectly. Thanks for the input
  15. Anybody know the base color of Houdini? Is the color a transparent carolina pumkin? Or transparent root beer? Thanks in advance.
