  1. Minnow silver

    Only time i had any arc in the microwave was when i let the glitter clump and didn't stir it enough to get it mixed good . That was the long silver glitter. Cub48
  2. Mini Shooting Star Owners

    Hi Guys I just wanting to tell all u guys that if u don't have the injector heater u need to get one. This is the best thing since slice bread. I set mine when i turn the mini on when i get ready to start shooting it is ready to go no plastic set up and it works great. Ultra Molds u did a great job on this i would like to have one for my other injectors. Thanks Cub48
  3. Ned Rig

    Check with Captain Hooks Wholesale they carry most all hooks
  4. New guy and now scared to death??

    Put u a fan in the window build a bench that the microwave can set on under the fan or beside it. Don't use the microwave that u eat from long sleeves and long pants, gloves, respirator, glasses. These are the same thing u should use with lead. Make sure no hooks in baits and the baits are plastic not gulp. Cub48
  5. ultra-molds mini shooting star

    As rrosenberry said u can use a blowgun with the rubber tip but mine don't have the rubber tip just a blow gun . I take two wooden 1/4" dowels and turn the valves open, I remove the plug in bottom and try to pull the runner out with the plug. i turn my unit on as it warms up around 150f to 200f then blow thru the front of the valves the plastic will come out inside the pots just reach in to the pots with some tongs to get the worm size plastic out. Blow thru both holes . Cub48
  6. ultra-molds mini shooting star

    I have a Mini but i don't use salt in it I don't think it would scratch with salt but it would need cleaned and lubed up to stop corrosion . After it cools I turn the machine on and at 180f i open my valves i will blow thru each port. To clear the plastic out. Cub48
  7. Need help homemade hand injector

    I sawed the end off. U can screw the end off the rod. The piston and rod will slide out . Clean up the surface where u sawed the end off . Bevil it a little where the oring will slide in ok then find u something that will fit in the tube tight i bought a round piece of aluminum and sanded it down to a tight fit fixed the end where it fit the molds . The tip has to be a tight fit or it will suck air unless u stick the end passed the tip. Warm the injector before u shoot and u can keep shooting without cleaning. Cub48
  8. Adding Pearl Colouring to Plastisol

    extra fine glitter !! maybe Cub48
  9. Need help homemade hand injector

    The shocks i use are the ones that go bad they still work good for plastic . The oring can be replaced on the piston. If u know a auto mechanic he may have one lying around for free. Cub48
  10. Need help homemade hand injector

    It is a shock the oil had leaked out i cut the end off it has a aluminum piston with an oring i work at a Chevy Dealer so mine did not cost me anything we replace them when they go bad. I used mine a long time until i bought one that was machined from Bass Tackle Molds. Get the longer one if u want to buy as like now i have 4 molds and the one i have will not shoot all 4 molds without refilling. Cub48
  11. Need help homemade hand injector

    The liftgate shocks i was talking about are on Chevrolet Tahoe liftgates they hold the liftgate up when u raise it.
  12. Need help homemade hand injector

    I made one out of a liftgate shock it worked great for years. I bought a round piece of solid aluminum to make the tip. Cub48
  13. Do you need an injector for a senko mold?

    Go ahead and spend the extra 50.00 and get an injector. I have a trick worm mold that is hand pour i have never had a great looking worm come from it .LOL I do have some of the worm molds that can be hand pour each worm has its own spur but i tried to pour them with no luck i inject them. If u heat the mold it might hand pour have not tried this takes too much time with a heated mold. U have to let mold cool before u can get your baits out!!! When i tried to hand pour them they would set up before it got to the bottom of the worm. Cub48
  14. Clamping molds

    C Clamps marred my molds i use a carpenters vise it has two 1/2 rods on the bottom of the vise u can stack 4 -5 molds in it at a time i have tried all the recommend clamp and this the best i found.
  15. Plastisol UV protector( Baitjunky)

    There was not anything add to plastisol other than colorant maybe stablizer . Where i first came up with the problem was i bagged like 20 in a bag and made a cork board stapled like 30 bags to it a friend goes to flee markets so he carried them and would display them on a table in the sun after spring crappie season he gave them back the blue/ice had turned green . The Monkey/Milk and Green/ Silver were ok. I was just wanting to make sure my product was the best it could be. I have not had any problems with the ones i keep in the boat or inside . Thanks for all the input Cub48
