  1. Yes, another powder coat Q: best coverage for multiples

    Only 1psi? that's crazy! Going to check out TJs
  2. Yes, another powder coat Q: best coverage for multiples

    Which blaster do you use? I tried a min air etcher from Harbor Freight and it sucked lol
  3. Electrostatic VS Fluid Bed VS airbrushing with a mini sandblaster 1) which gives the most consistent coating? I know if I just dip a hot lure into the paint with no fluid bed it seems I get too much on them and get some runs with baking. Also this method really "coagulates" in the eye recesses making the 3d eyes not want to fit 2) which is best for batches of lets say 25 plus? 3) Any tips on keeping the wires free of powder? I thought of having a clamp that holds them by the hook and another that holds them by the wire, thus protecting the wire. Over this wonderful, consistent finish I would use a light coat of epoxy (helps hold eyes on too) I think with any method I can work out doing multiple lures and can figure out some reclamation methods for overspray. I just really want a consistent finish.
  4. Question for the centrifugal casting crowd...

    Ok that is very very helpful. The main mold ring looks to be about 1 3/4" high and the bottom piece goes 1/4" reducing the depth to 1 1/2" the spacer allows for the mold to be 1" and then the top lid compresses it all. Thanks a ton dlaery!

    Thanks, that is really helpful!
  6. Question for the centrifugal casting crowd...

    And this is the DIY video that gave me the inspiration/madness.
  7. Question for the centrifugal casting crowd...

    Here is my "artist's concept" drawing lol
  8. Question for the centrifugal casting crowd...

    So I am clear: the interior of the can is 1" so the mold rubber is compressed by that 1/4" disc part of the lid?
  9. Question for the centrifugal casting crowd...

    This is true.
  10. Question for the centrifugal casting crowd...

    This is the frame to make (vulcanize) the mold, not the part that spins the mold and you pour the lead in. We may be talking about two different things
  11. Question for the centrifugal casting crowd...

    The pictures I have seen of mold cans, the lid has kind of a "lip" or disc that presses down on the mold inside the can providing the pressure on the mold rubber.
  12. I am building my own centrifugal casting setup. 12" molds. My question is on the mold ring/can: for a 12"x1" how much does the "lip" on the lid of the can go into the cavity? It looks like about 1/4" to me. I have a local machine shop that can make me a can for a fraction of what I would pay for "the real thing". The parts being cast are spinnerbaits and buzzbaits, so a 1" mold should do the trick. My plan is to put mold in place and then the lid using large CClamps to add the pressure. I look forward to the replies and thank you in advance. Oh ....I am going DIY due to limited funds and let's face it, if we weren't DIY types we wouldn't be here.
  13. Do It BZK-2-3812

    and it is sold
  14. Do It BZK-2-3812

    For sale is a Do It buzzkeel buzzbait mold (1/2 and 3/8 oz cavities) It is in near perfect shape. I made a mod to one area to allow for a longer top arm but the is NO way affects the original intent of the mold. Payment is through Paypal, $36 and that includes Priority Mail Shipping (with tracking of course). I will ship within 24 hours.
