  3. Wow like your set up! Thanks for the pics and ideas. Still in the process of building up my bench and storage area for supplies. Like the idea of zip locks for leftovers. Might steal that one for sure lol
  4. No usually a real good shake for about a minute does the trick. I usually shake mine really well and don’t have that problem. Did u heat it to 350 degrees
  5. Did u make sure to mix the plastic really well before heating it up?
  6. I like to hear everyone’s opinions and thought on this too!!!!
  7. All this is great info and tips one thing I make sure to do after I'm finished each day is to take the injector apart and give it a good cleaning inside and out. I use a baby bottle brush I stole from my wife's kitchen, with a tiny bit rubbing alcohol. And this helps me clean out all the plastisol stuck to the walls left over inside the injector. than I lube up the inside of the injector and the O Rings on the plunger and tip. Then I put it back together and pump it a few times back and forth and its ready to go the next time I'm going to shoot baits. not sure if it anyone else does this but man it works great and keeps it clean and lubed up

Here are some pics hopefully that will show better what I mean. Any help would be truest appreciated
