  1. Boss powder paints

    Smalljaw do you heat your jigs initially with the toaster oven or do you use a heat gun? The website says not to use a heat gun, thats where i thought i made the mistake. Possible that the jigs did not get hot enough all throughout the jig for the paint to adhere properly.
  3. Boss powder paints

    Hey guys i have a question about Boss powder paints....I purchased a few different colors for use on some jigs. I did a few test runs with the powder and found out that the paint chipped of the jigs very easily after a short time on the water. I used a heat gun for the initial application the baked in a toaster oven. I noticed on there web site after the fact that they recommend preheating the jigs in the toaster oven for 10 min at various temps.depending on the powder... then dipping them into the powder paint, and returning them to the toaster oven to finish. Does anyone have any feedback on best process for these powders? Thank you guys! Jason

    Makes sense! My mistake...the blades were actually from Barlows. Kind of my Fault i bought 50 and all of them are sunken in slightly on the edge. I probably should try and return them to Barlows. Spent$66.00 on a Qty. of 50. If Small jaw is correct these are Worth spinner blades...Does not seem to be the quality you would expect from Worth.

    Good information smalljaw! Thank you...Yes the blades i bought where all the same size. I don't have calipers but looking at other spinnerbaits i have they are thinner. They are just not a smooth willow shape.. Will Worth sell smaller quantities than listed on their website? What i have read they are the best but i don't need so many as of yet!!

  9. spinnerbait blades

    Hey guys...received an order from LPO last week. On the order i received some of there so called Premium blades. They were willow blades in size 4. I noticed that they were not even uniform in their shape. The teardrop shape had a slight dip in the center edge of them and they seemed rather thin for premium blades. I've been on most of the major sights shopping around but dont feel like buying a bunch to find the best quality and the best price. I'm open to suggestions on where to buy. I dont mind paying a little more for quality... Jason

  11. spinnerbait molds

    so they hold through the aluminum? i'm just trying to wrap my head around the placement...can you upload some pictures?
  12. spinnerbait molds

    so you actually put them inside the aluminum mold? i was thinking of just attaching them to the side of the mold...

    Will the magnets hold the hooks? i just thought of this...what are the hooks made of. I believe hooks are stainless steel..magnets don't work on stainless. I could be wrong...

    Thats a great idea! it seems the hook just seems to want to move around in the mold...the magnet would definitely keep the hook aligned properly during the pour. One other question to guys...a lot of the store bought spinnerbaits seem to have a slight bend directly off the lead part off the bait rather than straight line to the r bend of the shaft. If thats the case is it just a matter of putting a slight bend in the shaft before loading it into the mold. The wire forms i bought are just the usual v shape which would be a straight connection to the hook in the mold. Hope this makes sense:) Jason
