  1. Trapper jig hooks

    I've poured Poison tail and swim jigs. They are a good strong hook. However for the money I prefer Gamakatsu.
  2. First Jigs Ever!

    Nice Job! What mold is that?
  3. protie skirt collar bands?

    Some people like that type skirt, me included, and some do not. I don't think that's a skirt you can make yourself. I have a vendor that will make what you want but there is a 500 or 1000 min. order and they take several weeks to make. I will start to order for next season in November or December to make sure I get them on time.
  4. Needing Heads Casted

    Cast industries.
  5. Gamakatsu released a 30 degree hook

    I just placed an order this morning! I'm new to the Poison jig and love it but was not happy with the hook choices, problem solved.
  6. Do-It Midwest Finesse Jig Mold with Wire Keeper

    I use the Owner 5101 Ted.
  7. Midwest Finesse jig mold first concern

    I'm not. Lite wire Owner.
  8. Midwest Finesse jig mold second concern

    I want to do that as well I hope there is an answer to help to stop the flashing. I use the Lite wire owners on this mold so I have more hook choices. How did you modifie for the weed guards?
  9. Midwest Finesse jig mold first concern

    I find even when I use the Owner hooks with that mold I have to pour slow or it will flash. Maybe try to pour veryyy slow. Good luck.
  10. Powder over cured powder

    If you mean cured as in baked I'm not sure. How ever if you mean base color reheat and add two more colors that's fine.
  11. Rcbs Deal Going On Right Now.

    What Makes these so much better than your basic Lee pots? Thanks.
  12. Mold's Not Pouring Good Keepers

    Thanks again guy's. Ted , what type of bit would you use on the mold?
  13. Mold's Not Pouring Good Keepers

    Hey Ted I'm using a Hvy gami. hook, I'm thinking not enough Bismuth is getting by the hook. I have a lot of customers that love this hook so I need to solve this issue. I loose to much time picking out the bad ones and re pouring them. I'll let you know if I solve it Ted.
  14. Mold's Not Pouring Good Keepers

    Thanks guy's I've done all of the above except turning up the heat. I pour Bismuth tin mix and not lead. The thing is some of the cavities come out fine every time and some do not. I will try pouring at a higher temp though. Thanks again.
  15. Mold's Not Pouring Good Keepers

    I have a couple Do it mold Pro Pour Ballhead molds that don't pour well at the keepers. Does anyone work molds ? I would like to have these tweaked so they pour a consistent jig. Thanks
