  1. Yes, as said above. Points on the package puts all the inventory on YOUR books (risk).
  2. Here is a picture of what I use - they are 3d printed then coated in UV cured epoxy. I apply the epoxy on my lathe then cure while its spinning.
  3. Thanks for the correction! not well versed outside of my own little bubble.
  4. Awesome - best of luck to those guys. All the back and forth about plastic mfg's is toxic, I would rather read about making baits... or making plastisol LOL. wish more mfg's would share their DOE's etc... but, business is business.
  5. that lure molds with inserts are easier to use. I haven't seen a multi cavity with inserts though - so your time investment will likely be the same. Someone that knows more than me will chime in hopefully. I have bee working on a collet style tail cutter to replace the rotary tube jig cutter I typically use, pretty far down on the old project list, though.
  6. Check lureworks... its hearsay - but the general facebook consensus is that dead on is just re packaged lureworks colorant.
  7. Yes - absolutely. I have been experimenting since then though - and I like them much better off a dipping rod.
  8. thank you for posting, cool Idea.
  9. haha - Yes, makes a little more sense in this hobby.
  10. When my hobby was building VWs and Audis instead of baits, it was always: Fast, Reliable, Cheap - Pick two. Cant knock anyone for wanting to save a buck though.
  11. .ai file will be the industry standard. Many companies will couple their printing with a large minimum order. That is all the information i have on the subject. I am sure someone else will chime in. Have fun and stay safe out there!
  12. Here are two "Cheap" options that I have personally confirmed. 1) Linseed oil based paints (these colors WILL bleed into each other) ~24 colors for 14$. Read again that I am telling you these colors will bleed into each other, but they are alright for solid color baits. so if you shoot a lam with a clear, your non clear section will slowly seep into the clear section. 2) Mica based powders - 24 colors for 13$ check and double check you are procuring oil based paint and not Acrylic or what some people pass off as enamel. Both these are water based and you will end up wrecking your plastisol with a million little bubbles. I have caught fish with both options presented. I would also like to take this opportunity to support what was said above. Sometimes its worth spending the money. Anyways good luck out there and stay safe.

    that is incredible
  14. Some good advice here - like others here I started becuase I wanted to make something specific. That spiraled out of control, most expensive glow grubs I ever bought. Anyway - like others said, I'd skip the starter kit. 30 bucks is a tough sale, I'll assume you have saftey glasses and oven gloves. The rest goes down like this: 10$ will get you a pyrex cup and microwave. 13$ will get you 24 mica powders on amazon so you can make your own colors. https://www.amazon.com/Soap-Dye-Pigments-Colorant-Projects/dp/B079CGQDGB?keywords=mica+powder&qid=1536112723&sr=8-9&ref=mp_s_a_1_9 That leaves $7 for virgin plastic. Might have to melt down some old stuff until you pull the trigger on some plastic. Good luck out there and stay safe!
  15. I use the Mica powders found on Amazon. They do not bleed and are pretty cost effective.
