  1. Not off the shelf, but they’re pretty easy to make just with a pair of round nose pliers and some stainless leader. Bend a piece double. Then where you bent it, grab the bent end and bend it a bit more than 90 degrees. There’s your “part”. Tricky part is getting it on the hook without distorting it.
  2. Very nice video and showed the process neatly. Thank you for sharing it.
  3. Nice catch. Thanks for sharing the re-coloring Technique.
  4. This looks pretty close to me. http://www.basstackle.com/551_Creature_p/551-kj-1.htm
  5. Could you have overheated it or just changed colors over multiple reheats?
  6. Glad you got it worked out.
  7. The gate doesn’t look too restrictive. It’s almost as big as the worm judging from the pics. Not like some where the gate necks down to less than 50% of the worm diameter.
  8. ^^^^^^I’M so jealous^^^^^^:-)
  9. I can’t be much help except to say I have some experience with peg boarding molds. I thought it would be a pretty good method of storage too. So I put up the pegboard, bought the 12 inch long pegs for it thinking I could put a bunch of molds on one hook. I did that only to find out more than about two to a hook will eventually sag and pull that pegboard out of shape because of the excessive weight. Then they will slide down and fall off the pegs.
  10. Salt will make them opaque. Use any of that?
  11. Just buy medium, which is a good all around plastic, and add softener.

    Mold help

    I can’t help with the mold issue but have been successful by posting a pic in the gallery and then hyper linking it to your post from the gallery. The forum is much more megapixel restrictive as opposed to gallery.
  13. You may be able to twist a Q tip on the ceramic and if it pulls at the cotton fibers it’s probably grooved. You can check the eyes on a fishing pole using the same technique.
  14. I believe it probably is a BassTackle mold. Their description say six cavity side inject if you click their hyper link. Plus the alignment pins look like their product.
  15. Teds right on the money. Push and turn the handle at the same time to make tight loops on your Hagen’s.
  16. I use a propane torch to heat injector and molds if I need to. Griddle to keep things going for multiple shots to keep the plastic and injector hot.
  17. That does suck. Never thought about it being hand pour as most folks have moved away from it to hand injection.
  18. Also, it is a nice jig. 2 and 1/2 tabs is a full skirt for me. Your colors are nice and the hand tying is attention to detail. I like it.
  19. Welcome to TU clefeb2. I think the answer to your question is yes. A lot of guys swear by the CS Sealcoat and dip their jigs in it and hand to dry.
  20. That’s an idea, for sure. That said, Basseducer you are the only person I have heard of that has had issues since I’ve been here. You have much more experience than I and prolly most here after pouring and using lead for 40+ years. Can you share with us and give us guidance on lead usage based on what you know now? What you may have learned? I think most guys and gals, me included, only know what we have read here in that the perils of lead usage and ingestion are hand to mouth but In my mind, I have always questioned that.
  21. Yeah, he was just off with something that day. He should make it right.
  22. Nice bass. I went to Toledo Mid March and it was a little early. I’m a bank beater though and I’m sure someone caught them then out deeper.
  23. Well, shoot. It’s pretty dang simple. The standard is 5/8 inch and one or the other is off. If the BTS injection port is too big, communicate that with Bob and send it back. If your injector is off, well call Sarah and do the same. That prob is hard to fix and you shouldn’t have to.
