    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.

    Injector nozzle adapter

    I got this from Jacobs baits many years ago and don’t use it. If you think it will work let me know and I will send it to you.

    If you use a small round object to stir it will introduce less bubbles. Flat ones create a vortex and can introduce more bubbles. But if it is not hot enough and still thick anything will make bubbles. Smell is a personal thing. I think the one I use has less of an offensive smell. But then that is just me. Kind of a personal thing.

    Hard packing .

    I have been using a mixer for awhile now. But hand works good too. Did it that way for a long time. Just had some one ask how long I have had my pots, it been about 8 years and no issues. So that way is hard to beat. Heated injector stand is great too but the guy no longer sells it. Have to pull that video off.

    Don’t know who’s is really doing that nowadays. That was a thing that use to happen more than it does now.

    Hard packing .

    Some plastic compounds will settle on the bottom it is hard to mix it back in. Thus hard packing. You will need to make sure every time you use any plastic it is mixed well before you remove any from the container it came in.

    Cnc plastic mold air relief

    I have a friend in Chile that does great work on a router like that. He told me it was more about the cam software so you can control speeds and feeds to fit the machine. I had a feeling you were not using aluminum.

    So you know he did not stir it, even if he knew better and lost money when he had to replace it. Sounds like you only heard what you wanted from that conversation. He sold a lot of plastic for a long time and many brands and you are saying he was not carefull? Anyone that does this knows it need mixing before you use or repackages. Just because he used a drum pump does not mean it is bad. I still use one to this day.
