    Ready to Buy Equipment and Supplies

    Bass tackle injectors are the easiest to use with the quick disconnect nozzles. Baitjunkies plastisol is the overall value pick. I would check the classifieds and Ebay for injection molds. You can pick up some good deals there.

    YM Green Pumpkin Amber Laminate

    Looks like carolina pumpkin with black, and a little fuchsia, and red flake.

    giant red glitter?

    You can try a local boat repair shop also. Most may trade some for a few bags of baits. You can also get some unique colors and they tend to have larger sizes than regular body shops.

    Safely and accurately applying chart. dip and dye

    And make sure your fishing partner isn't overly clumsy or you end up with chartreuse seats lol.

    Floating worms

    If you find the size / style worm you want, try injecting air into it with a hypodermic needle to make it float.

    2.75 inch tube mold/Worm oil

    Check with your plastisol supplier and ask them to sell you some MSO. MSO is essentially worm oil only cheaper because it's not called worm oil. ( and no scent or glitter.)

    Handmade Tubes and Splitter Advice

    Also put some gum rubber down to cut against. It will work a lot better than a wooden block. You can get it at Grainger fairly cheap.

    Help with white

    Try waiting until just before you shoot the plastic to add the glitter.

    Tungsten worm weights

    Soft Plastic Molds

    Hang on, you are about to get bombarded. Best thing is to go to the search and click on suppliers. You will find mold makers there.

    thermometer

    I use the IR just for the quick reading of the plastic. It's real handy when shooting laminates so as to keep both colors close to the same temperature.

    The lies about salt for the newbie

    You can but it would probably cook out. It's best to add the scent just before you shoot ( or pour ) the plastic.

    Tungsten worm weights

    Thanks for the info. None of these have the plastic insert but painting will probably be a better option.

    Tungsten worm weights

    I just placed my first order of tungsten weights My question is, can you heat and powder coat them like the lead weights?
