    Fish Eyes

  3. http://www.sciencelab.com/xMSDS-Acetone-9927062 judge for yourself I use it but only with my respirator and gloves and plenty of ventilation I knew a few surfboard glassers that were pretty screwed up from it. there is not a single solvent that is not bad for you just some are worse than others

    Mold Question

    One trick to make sure you get a good part two is to pull your original out of part one. Coat your RTV with Vaseline. insert your original back into part one of your mold. that way you do not get any Vaseline on you original and only on part one RTV.. make sure you seal your original first if it is sculpted out of wood I use clear poly to seal my original before i make my molds it will fill in the pours of your wood. and give you a good release from the rtv. Disregard this step if you make your original out of plastic or clay Hope this helps K.C.
  5. Wear a respirator and solvent resistant gloves at all times when working with solvents, I have a permanent headache because i didn't wear one until it was too late one thing about a lot of solvents is that they numb you ability to smell them early on . with me i would not know it was causing damage until I started to not be able to feel my scalp when I washed my hair. granted I was using large amounts of Lacquer thinner daily and spraying contact adhesive with high concentration of toluene. granted this is not the same exposure that you get if you are brushing baits outside but each exposure is accumulative no matter how small it does its damage to brain and nerve cells and liver damage..just giving you a heads up from first hand knowledge and a lot of research wear the proper safety equipment and protect yourself we are not able to fix some of the damage these chemicals produce. Now go out and make some killer baits and catch a pig....

    Mold Question

    All you need is good old Vaseline if it is your rtv to rtv part line. just wash it good with dish soap afterword ...
  7. I have to agree with everything you said Rookie. Ed and Lisa's eyes are some of the best and most affordable. I have used about 5 different eye suppliers now and they are are the best Quality, and their customer service is bar none. Ed will call you to make sure you get exactly what you are looking for.. and will not take your order unless they have the eyes in stock and the ship it out very quickly. they have earned my business from now on.. its not often that I will comment on someones business but these people deserve the business K.C.
  8. If is got oil in it sure has not affected my baits I give them a heavy bath in it before I prime and I have zero fisheyes and if it had oil in it you would think that would be the first thing you would see.. correct me if I'm wrong.. (I just pulled the msds sheet on it and it states 91% alcohol 9 % H2o water...)
  9. Isopropyl is great for giving you bait a prepaint wash , but like Mark said it just doesn't cut it as a solvent
  10. Go to your local aquarium shop you can buy some salt and a salinity gauge there.. you can have it exactly the salinity to where you plan to sell these. there is quite a bit of difference between salt and fresh water and buoyancy. K.c.
