    Bears melting pot part

    Yeah I would agree to the extent that there are other options but show some respect he was in it from the start and it was the bee's knee's when he started to offer it, the fact that there are other options doesn't take away from what that system does and can do, and don't go down that road with me I don't cosign your BS

    Thought I'd share

    Haven't done anything for in quite a long time but stumbled onto this video and thought it was impressive albeit time consuming considering the cure times but that may not be an issue for some can't figure out how to share it without the video posting up in the thread if a mod knows how to make it just a link that would be great don't want to violate any posting rules

    Salt water blanks

    Hum 2 outta 3 are advertisements for sellers that should also be in the classifieds but I see lurepartsonline is in both guess my adblock can't do it all

    Selling soft baits to friends

    Your better off just bartering with your friends and not making mention of it on social media I mean I don't know how many your number of "friends" is but once you start packaging and advertising you've enter another realm where the tax man will be very interested

    Bojon Cd/Dvd Tube Dipping

    Now that right there is funny this site has nowhere near that number of active members more like a few thousand divide that by the number that work with and frequent the soft plastics forum and well the number is quite small

    Bojon Cd/Dvd Tube Dipping

    Yeah its a shame, to put it in perspective I searched for these videos and found a thread where the links were still on the page albeit broken and decided maybe we could reach out to the individual that posted them to see if he still may have them 1 he has not signed on in quite a long time and 2 and the more important one is his birthday was something in the early 30's so we are prolly loosing many from the period in which hand pouring was king

    Bojon Cd/Dvd Tube Dipping

    You're putting too much into this process he did not have some breakthrough process in fact many that tried it have moved on to other methods, wish I still had the CD's I would send them to you for free as I moved on not long after getting them but trust me you will be underwhelmed at the process its flat out that simple, a few bent wires of you favorite diameter and length a few disposable aluminum pans a couple cheap hot plates and some patience as you won't be breaking any records in production Also keep in mind that most folks from that time period probably aren't even on the site any more Good luck!

    Bojon Cd/Dvd Tube Dipping

    Well short of any other description they are perfect, but they tend to be on the thin side so the're not a one size fits all, i like the thin tails as they move nice in little to no current

    Bojon Cd/Dvd Tube Dipping

    Yeah I think what people are missing here is that he was doing this before all the goodies and tech stuff we now have he was doing tubes when no one else was and the days of plaster molds were still king

    Bojon Cd/Dvd Tube Dipping

    Yep that's the way I remember it but to be quite honest the process is quite simple I had his video but I think I passed it on to someone on another forum but the above process was how it was done but there was trimming involved it wasn't a clean process like vertical dipping provides and then there are the tube molds for which I changed to and never looked back

    Bojon Cd/Dvd Tube Dipping

    It's been a long time but I remember a thread and I believe he gave permission to post here, not sure if it still exists but try doing a search I don't think it would be appropriate for someone to sell you his work though

    Ready to Buy Equipment and Supplies

    Short answer is no they are not all compatible you do need to know as stated old Jacobs molds have a smaller port you will need to know the dimension, most are 5/8" but there have been a lot of overseas offerings that may make it to the us market via directly or ebay and the like so a little investigating is in order but from most suppliers in the states there should be no issue

    Rolling tube tail cutter?

    If I can find it I will post a pic but flex is a non issue and the leverage is benificial both in control and keeping your digits still at a count of ten I found that although the pic I provided of that unit worked your hands are very close to some serious sharp blades, that unit is Bojon's design and I sure do miss his input on all things tubes but he's well remembered for his contributions to this site I hope you can do a forum search on his tube process. also a shout out to Al Winco for the his expert tutelage

    Rolling tube tail cutter?

    find a cheap paint roller the small type you may need to tap threads on the end but all you need to do is determine how spaced apart the blades are and put the correct washers between and you have a safe but effective tail cutter here is one that I used before I made the paint roller version:
