    They work great for that. You will be fine. What size is yours? I just might get rid of them.

    What is it you are wanting to do with these pots? I have two but rarely use them. Bought them to hold plastic at temp but they take a lot of room on the bench.

    Glue Issues

    Ya never had good luck with doing that. They are two different products. Can’t say why the Kalins works, they much have a different formula for plastic. One way I did it before was to put a screw lock in the hard bait then glue and twist it on. This was when I was pouring my own tails and using Mf plastic. Many years ago now.

    Glue Issues

    Are you glueing soft plastic to soft plastic or is it a hard bait with a soft tail?

    Robo prism shad recipe

    Yes they are and if you want to match that color get the mf ones. Makes it a lot easier. Mainly because you are wanting to match pearls with colors and they are not the same. If they were no one would need pearls.

    Another way of getting the two lower colors is Mf pearl powders. For the purple use 912vb powder. For the blue use 908bb. This will get you what you want with ease. When trying to match robo colors with veins I use these two all the time.

    Liquid UV Treatment

    Oh ok when you were asking about different colors of Uv I though of glow powder. I have never seen different color UV.

    Liquid UV Treatment

    No the UV stuff is an amber color that can’t be seen unless you add to much. In clear plastic it will take a blue/violet hue and if added to black it looks more of a violet type color. Are you sure you mean UV cause from the pic it looks like glow powder. UV for the most part can only be seen with a black light. Please clarify so you don’t order the wrong stuff.

    Bubbles Bubbles Bubbles!!!!

    I have a bunch or there top inject molds and some are different than others. For the ringed ones I use the Twinjector all the time even if it is one color. And it will bubble towards the top when the plastic is to hot. Cool your plastic to about 300-310 and inject slow when you feel it stop give it a bit of a quick push and remove the injector. Now here is something that I have found is when shooting a cold mold it will have a tendency to pull the Sprue out and let air in. Air will be in the tip or nose of the bait. On others molds like the shad body’s I shoot hotter with the same push at the end to force out air trapped toward the top of the mold. Hopefully this will help if not repost what mold you are talking about and I will see if I have any tricks on those.

    thermometer

    I tested both once and found that they were very close to the same temp. Using the probe to stir and the ir gun to read temp at the same time. Ended up within a few degrees. I have something much better to stir with than a thin probe so I ended up using the ir gun all the time. But either way it is very important to know what the temp is. When you have problems most of the time you could ask and if someone asks what temp you can tell them. As for the quality question try the less expensive one not a big loss if it is not so good. And Walmart would probably return it after even months of use.
