  1. Sorry, I didn't mean to say line tie in my last post. I meant to say hook hangers. My line tie will be the wire in the lip itself but if I am not goign to use the thru wire as the hook hangers can i just epoxy the wire 1/4 of the way into the bait in a drilled out hole? Thanks
  2. Thanks for the response. If am using Screw eyes for the line tie is it possible to just drill out a hole in the body and epoxy the wires in the drill hole? This way I can use the screw eyes for convinience but also have the lip and line tie very secure? Thanks
  3. Hey Guys, It looks like a lot of the large trolling baits have a double wire for a line tie which is secured in the bait. How is the wire secured to the lip itself? It almost looks like the wire is molded into the lip. Or maybe it is just epoxied. Thanks

    foam question

    dramone, what type of foam are you using? Thanks for your time
  5. Ross, I was wondering the same thing myself.
  6. Hello, I'm not sure what Propionate is. Is there a commercial brand similar to this? THanks again
  7. Haz, Thanks for the idea. What type of sealer are you using? Thanks

  11. I guess my question is why it won't work in theory. I know the alumilite gets very warm when its in the mold but shouldn't a 2 part epoxy hold up to that kind of heat? I know the rtv molds are more flexible so maybe that has something to do with it? THanks
  12. Hey, Thanks guys. Good help. Jed, Do you have any foam you reccomend? Looking for cheap stuff that will work. Also what type of clear coat are you using for the alumilite? Just getting into mold building. Thanks again guys for all the help.
  13. My only guess would be that when the mold is coated with epoxy that the mold will lose some of the detail. I'm just hoping to get a basic/simple shape and then add detail to the body when it is out of the mold. THanks
  14. Hello Everyone, I'm new to 2 piece mold making and am hoping to find the cheapest way to make them. I've searched the archives and it looks like no one uses plaster of paris molds for hard baits. Is it possible to make a 2 part plaster of paris mold and then pour in alumilite to make plastic baits? I'm using RTV right now but was hoping there was something cheaper to use. Also what is the best method/ratio to thin down plaster. Thanks for your time,
