    Del's Injector

    I have an injector from del and it works great. I just got it back in january. It has the screw on tip. Took a little bit to get to me but I wasnt in a hurry anyway.

    First Injection Mold

    Ok you gave me some places to look. I've been heating to 350 and shooting from there I will try to let it cool off a bit more before I inject and I will back off the preassure on the injector as well. Its a del-mart grub mold so it has the screws built into the mold to hold it closed.

    First Injection Mold

    My first Injection mold came the other day and I was out in the shop using it for the first time last night. I had a quick question. I noticed when I shot some of the grubs the bodies would have a thin flashing coming off where the mold joins together. I was curious if there is something I am possibly doing to cause this or is it just nature of the beast. Its no big deal cause it usually pulls right off the body but I wasnt sure if there was something I could be doing to avoid that. Thank You

    Dipping Tubes

    oh man thank you!! I got most of that sitting around right now anyway. I will run to fleet tomorrow and see if i can find some blades that fit.

    Dipping Tubes

    What I did was I took a clamp and epoxied a bunch of razor blades together and epoxied it to the clamp so that I could lay the tube on the blades and push it down with the other side of the clamp. Problem was i think i set the blades to cut to finely cause the plastic gets hung up in the blades and breaks. I hit both with the worm oil so I think I just need to space them out more for this. But I am still looking at the pizza cutter style to make things easier

    Dipping Tubes

    I've been trying to figure out how guys were making those. I'm still playing around. Jig Man I may look at that option as well.

    Dipping Tubes

    Had another idea for a tail cutter after I posted this. I'm waiting for some epoxy to dry to give it a shot. Figured anything is worth it at this point LOL

    Dipping Tubes

    Well here was tonights try. These are the survivers so far cause I marred all the others up trying to cut the tail. I tried tonight using razor blades. I took 10 and clamped them together which the bodies alone gave enough separation for hte size strands I would want. I clamped them together and tried to cut em but still had no luck. Back to the drawing board and hopefully I can salvage these.

    Dipping Tubes

    I did just from reading what others have been posting about plastic needing to be more stout for tube making. I've defintiely learned some lessons after doing that one there. I dipped way to many times and I've got some blades coming for making the tails a little better. I'm going to change up the next batch and see what happens.

    Dipping Tubes

    Well here is the first try. This is the only one I cut the tail on before I thought I need to find a better way. Went a little to tough on the hardener so I'll back it down next time. And I just need a bigger cup for dipping longer tubes lol. not pretty but the first never is.
