  1. I've been trying some baitmold molds and the baits stick in the mold something fierce and I've only had experience with aluminum molds and silicone hand put molds. What's the best mold release. I tried some oily scent I have with no luck.
  2. Yeah I might just have to go a different route
  3. Does anyone make a mold almost exactly like the 4" chigger craw and still produce it? I know swing oil baits makes baits just like the chigger called the bean craw but the last time I made a big order I had to cancel due to it was 5 months past when I was supposed to receive them so I want to get my own mold and produce them.
  4. Can anyone name the company that made/makes this mold? It's injection.
  5. I wanna get into making hard body swimbaits out of a resin. I plan on using real Shad and baitfish for the master. I've been looking at alumilite products. I'm wanting to make something like the bullshad or glide baits but in smaller versions.Has anyone played around with this and had much success?

  7. Has anyone tried pouring with either of these using do-it molds or lee melting pots? I have a dealer who carries it by the pound now and I'd like to give it a try. It's ALOT more expensive but it has better vibration one wire baits and it's better for the environment.
  8. I find it works a lot better thinned 20% - 30% with Xylol/Xylene.... Measuring for accuracy,that's only after I use it a few times
  9. Thanks for the replies guys! Honestly I used clear nail polish coat on jigs in the past but the first true hardcoat I ever tried was KBS and never knew of anything else out there unless you use devcon. Which don't get me wrong,devcon is great but I'm lazy and don't want to mix two parts. Sometimes my batchs of baits are 60-80 or several hundred with jigs or sometimes they're just 10 baits or less. I like KBS so much because it's good to use right from the store (summit auto carries it and they're only 30 minutes away on the way to several lakes). Usually I thin the KBS though after several uses since every time air gets in the can it starts to thicken it and that stuff isn't cheap! I found it great as a sealer for crankbaits as well.
  10. Whats the best way to do this to get an even coat? I use a heatgun for a heat source but would it be better to just use a fluid bed or to use a paint brush and tap the powdercoat on?
  11. Does anyone have any feedback or experience with baitmold.com? I know they're overseas and shipping wont be quick,but I just make baits for myself and a couple friends alone. So production molds and spending $150-$300+ on a single mold isn't what I want. His molds are pretty cheap and made from soap stone or some variation material like it and he claims it has the life and accuracy pour that an aluminum mold does.
  12. I've used KBS and stuck with it because I've had such good luck,I use devcon on my jigs but I always wonder if there is something better out there.
  13. I have his drop shot mold and I love it
  14. Thanks guys! I'll be giving it a try soon!
  15. I'm pretty new to pouring but it's become addicting. One color that puzzles me is my favorite and most productive,breen. Can anyone help me with a recipe that's close to it or dead on?
  16. whats the best way to pour spinnerbaits and buzzbaits? It's difficult with a 4" clearance on my pot with a half inch spout sticking below....ladle fed possibly? also whats the easiest way to powdercoat them without a mess....I just got a small chicago powder paint gun I'd like to try.
  17. Thanks for the info guys! I shot about 12 ounces yesterday, Had a blast. Also found matching orings at my shop as well and snagged a few. They're high heat tolerance stiff orings as well as medium stiffs for the oilfield. Made to resist temps over 500 degree easily without losing form and made for high pressures in upwards of 60,000lbs. Interested to see how well they work in this application.
  18. I bought my bass tackle last night! Can't wait to get it!
  19. Alright I'm new to the game,tried my first dab at it today and wasn't happy with the nozzle popping off my injector because it sent hot plastic all over. Is there a locking nozzle injector out there that anyone thinks is the best? And that I can possibly easily use to make laminate colors?
  20. Hey guys, I'm new to the whole world of pouring. I've been pouring my own lead,wire baits,bladebaits,and making and painting my own cranks for years now. I found it time to get into pouring but I was wondering if you guys have any suggestions or favorite brands on what plastic to use and which one exactly to get. I've picked up about a dozen molds to start off with. I want something fairly soft and I like baits that float. I use a lot of roboworm,GYCB,strike king,missle baits,and a few customs. I want to stay away from harder plastics like used in RI baits and Zoom. If I can avoid needing to add softener and I can just buy I soft plastic so I can just pour and take another variable out if like that. Any info would be much appreciated guys! Thank you.
