    Dealing with Hard Pack

    PEX pipe:-) plumber by chance? Lol a sheet rock mixer in a cordless drill in the 5 gallon bucket is the best way I know of. I will pull 1/2 a gallon off At a time ( I use it pretty quickly . I put a couple of 1 ounce lead weights in the bottom of the gallon jug I use.

    Keitech plastisol recipe

    Kietech if I’m not mistaken is a two recipe formula . I know they use salt in there plastic but it’s shot with a twin injector.. I’ve used dead on med and it’s a little to soft for my taste as a medium, but you could add some hardner to it to stiffin it up a little. Which might improve your wiggle. You can add salt to your plastic that will stiffin it up some at a cost of durability .

    Assorted newbie questions

    Yeah I suppose you could in theory. Don’t know how safe it would be. , but I suppose if you had a big enough flat pan in the oven you could at least keep the plastic off the heating element . It would get really nasty if plastic gets on the heating element .I don’t want to sound like the safety police but you do not want to get the plastic all over the heating element burnt plastic is not your friend it is absolutely 100% bad for you.. With all that said I don’t see why you couldn’t put the blending block the oven. . It’ll be hot but you already knew that LOL .I just hope you’re not doing it in the wifes oven because she’ll probably kill you when you’re done. Once you get your system down you’ll be fine . When I first used my duel injector there was a lot going on at once but after a while it’ll be like cracking eggs. You won’t think of it anymore

    Assorted newbie questions

    Greetings from the other side of the pond ! I would not worry so much about the nozzles clogging up just leave them in the presto pots or at least that’s what I do . As far as the block I usually clean mine out inbetween rounds.. On a side note I put my dual injector and block on a skillet to get them close to temp before I run anything through them. I have never personally used silicone but I have used pop to make injection molds

    Worm Oil

    Lmfao. Now that’s a conversation starter there! what you are more than likely experiencing is a plastic that is a” dry” plastic in other words what your experiencing . Long story short you add all you want and nothing is going to change. What brand of plastic ? There are some that are wet - exudes oil or dry that does not .

    Cheapest soft plastisol brand /supplier!?

    I agree I’ve been at this about 6 yrs now and have found each “brand” type of plastic has its pros and cons . Baitjunkys(Calhoun’s ) medium which is a dry plastic is good tough plastic great for grubs and small swimbaits . Now if we go the stick bait route mnf gets used super soft which is prefect for me only draw back if you want to call it that it exudes oil over its life which I’m ok with. To each his own . There really is no wrong plastic it’s all about what your after. Polysol(dead on) is great for holding its color reheat after reheat, which may play into the equation like when using the very temperament color white

    This is a pre-made bai that started out as white . The pictures don’t do it any justice but it has a copper pearl to it but it was done with plastic coloant and clear for lureworks

    Speaking of colors. If you have colorant for soft plastic worm making you can use the clear paint and colorant and make your own colors on the fly. I do this ALOT.
