    That's awesome.
  2. Bulk Bucktails?

    What size do you need? I can do them with a black nickel mustad.
  3. Custom tube makers

    I'm doing a custom 10 cavity 6inch tube mold. It will have 4 sets of 10 fixed rods. That might make it worth doing them yourself. You could probably do more cavities if it's 4 inch.

    Those are awesome.
  5. RCBS Pro Melt Hot Pot Problem.

    I would make sure your mold has drop out mold release. Also leave the mold on the top of the pot over the lead to heat it up. The main issue is likely the temp of the mold. I have some very difficult collars to fill and generally if the pots turned all the way up and the pots hot I dont have any issues.
  6. preping lead heads before painting

    Likely temp/time issue in my opinion. Get a oven thermometer.
  7. Cleaning up the surface of aluminium moulds?

    The best thing to do would be coat it with I would heat the mold so it's warm and coat it a few times.
  8. Purchasing a Tekcast centrifugal spin caster

    If you're referring to mine it's a regular cnc mold. Don't want to do the spincast thing but I want to do a lot in a day.
  9. Purchasing a Tekcast centrifugal spin caster

    Sorry haven't been on. SolidWorks. It will have a channel running across the top connecting them all so they can be removed together.
  10. Purchasing a Tekcast centrifugal spin caster

    I'm working on a 40 cavity mold mold. I think I can keep up with a spin caster but time will tell.
  11. Tube head hook eye position HELP

    Thank you Smalljaw. Most guys are using a 5 inch canyon plastics gitzit. I've been making the nontappered doit tube head with a 90 degree thin wire 5/0 hook and it works. I was planning on using the 32786 60 degree flipping hook on this mold. Its similar in size to the thinner wire 5/0 ive been using. Also was planning on being able to use both in the mold if possible.
  12. Tube head hook eye position HELP

    Any suggestion for a longer shank hook?
  13. Tube head hook eye position HELP

    I don't fish these. They're been fished in the california aquaduct and depending on flows they go up or down in weight. I think it's 30 foot deep on average. I fish 2 and 3 oz tube heads in the ocean. Lol
  14. Tube head hook eye position HELP

    I'm making myself a 40 cavity tube mold. It will be 3/8 1/2 and 3/4 oz mold. I need some opinions on the hook eye position. Especially from people that fish tubes. This is the current layout. Any changes you would make? The only thing I see is maybe shifting the 3/4 oz eyelet up some bringing the body down the shank.
  15. Herring Head Underspin Problem

    I have some really nice lead i use for hardner. Let me know and I'll send you some at cost. I think it's high in tin as it doesn't tarnish and it makes lead flow better.
