  1. This is my first winter doing soft baits should I be concerned with freezing temperatures, and leaving the plastisol in my unheated garage. Temperatures go down to 20 F , sometimes lower.
  2. The 300 series stainless steel is non heat treatable, so no it can not be annealed. The 400 series stainless is hear treatable and can be softened or hardened. There are many options to stainless steel and many series including 700 series. Inconel, nickel, monel, bronze, nickel bronze, are also to be considered if available check you local welding supplier sometime they have rolls of stainless that can't be used for welding, for one reason or another, and you can get real cheap..
  3. There is a company in Windsor Ontario, Canada. Bondy Baits They make a lot for Bass Pro
  4. OH I agree there is a wealth of info from some great people on this site. Thank you all.
  5. In the past I had purchased some finesse minnows from Bass Pro they had a glow tail . Anyway half of them fell off before I got to use them. They must need a much higher temp to fuse.
  6. LOL You don't have to pay for advice, if you are near me we can meet . PM sent
  7. WD-40 works great and only takes a couple drops.
  8. Your from Alaska , China may be closer. lol
  9. I know I'm kind of new at making soft baits. I have been using MF and Lureworks. But my main colourant has been Tremclad Paint, this started when I could not fine any yellow or black . Now I use them all. I do not know if they bleed, or will have a negative effect on the finished product, eventually I will find out.

    That will be good for Halloween, but might scare the fish. LOL
  11. I'm confused I started making soft baits for myself and family, Had no intention to sell then. Except to a few friend I fish with. Now I am having a hard time keeping up with people ordering them . It does not make any sense I am selling them for 1$ each , you can purchase them at Bass pro 10 for $4.59. The reason I sell them for a $1 is that I do not want to sell them. I getting orders for 10 dozen , and 500 from different people I do not know. Can,t figure it out. But at that price I can't stop making them. What's your thoughts on this.

    Wobble event?

    Every Friday night when the bar closes in every town in America.
  13. I'm still old school, I get mine free from tire stores . All wheel weights half or no good ,but I get 50 lbs from 100 lbs of wheel weights. I would rather buy lead but can't find ant around here Ontario Canada. You did very well at a buck a lb.
  14. No need for a rag after, just wipe off the plunger.
  15. WD40 works great, after shooting for the day I give it a spray work the plunger a couple times and I'm done.
  16. I use Tremclad oil base paint and it works great
  17. As long as they catch fish who cares what they look like.
  18. Bubbles are in the mold not the plastic. Need better venting of the mold.
  19. welcome lots of good info and people here.
  20. I put mine in a water bucket with cold water, if anything it teaches them to swim.
  21. I shook and swirled the one gallon contained very well. Now it may be compacted on the bottom that I did not check because it was full and I had just received it from the supplied. Any way he has it now.
  22. Master Anglers ( Canadian company)
  23. LOL I was a salesman for 35 years, had I not been on commission's I would have told a lot of the to kiss off. I considered most of them as street sluts, they drop their pants to save a nickel.
  24. I mixed it 3 times and the last time for 3-4 minutes. The company I purchased it from is replacing it no questions asked, can't beat that anyway.
