    Diy mold frames

    Robbor, thank you for the info. I will look into that. I have also recently tried alumilite as well and that seemed to work well for small molds.

    Just wondering what material do you use to make the mold itself??? And I assume it is for pouring lead. I have made some molds myself using bondo but is tends to break away with time.
  3. Red for me, gives the bait a little contrast. Nice job on the baits.

    Good lookin jig there.
  5. Really great video. Thanks for sharing.
  6. Foam body crease fly, airbrushed shad color.
  7. I really like the sponge way to do it as well. I have been doing it that way a lot lately and really like the effect you can get, very easy to go heavy or as light as you want. Very effective technique.

    Very nice paint job.
  9. I am wondering if it is possible to use a heat gun and some high heat rubber, like high temp silicone or something equivalent to it.
  10. I have several Sahara 2500 spinning reels and some are starting to bind up and become hard to reel under a load. I have rebuilt 2 with new drive gears, I think its only a matter of time before they start doing the same thing. The gears are aluminum and wore down. Some internet chatter would suggest that the later models have resolved a internal clearance problem. Have you had the same problems?? Should I consider replacing with later Shimano reels, or go with another brand. I try to stay in the 70-120$ range. I loved them in the beginning but just seems to be the same problem again and again. Please comment and thanks in advance.
  11. X2 on the how to....... looks great, and I have also been trying to do the same thing with limited success.
  12. Thank you guys for your replies and ideas. I really like the idea of using the panty hose to screen the paint right from the bottle. For the longest time I have been just straining the paint at the cup. The wife keeps me in good supply of paint strainers...lol. The compressor I have been using is a tank style and runs up to 80lbs, air supply is never a problem. I did finally get mad enough and decided its time for an upgrade and purchased a Paasche Talon gravity feed gun. Wow what a difference, that is one hell of an airbrush. I plugged it into my current setup and it worked very nice. Absolutely a fine tool to use. Sometimes it pays, just to pay a little more. I should have done this years ago. Thanks again for all the input.
  13. I have been shooting createx paint, I have even changed nozzle, tip and needle, cleaned every part to new condition. Even with water/cleaner it will still have that cyclic off and on type pattern.
