  1. Just a follow up on this subject. After doing research it is recommended to use vegetable oil or baby oil. Now since I've never done this with the hot plastic I wonder how it is effected by the heat
  2. Thanks Les, I appreciate your feedback. It's not that I think people trying to sell me something are lying to me but I don't trust em. Some people will tell you anything to make a sale. I prefer to hear from the folks that are actually using the stuff
  3. Thanks Les I saw some different models and it started me thinking about that. I guess it really doesn't make any difference in the grand scheme of things
  4. Thinking of getting a dual injector, can anyone tell me what the center to center measurement is of the two tubes? Also is this measurement standard or are some wider that others? Adjustable? Thanks in advance
  5. That's interesting, I hadn't thought about it that way. I suppose that would work and if you decide to give it a try please let us know what you think and the results.
  6. Thanks Basskat, (I love the name) I kinda thought that might be the case. However coming from someone that has used different products it cuts downs a little searching and gets me pointed in the right direction.Your suggestion for lureworks is much appreciated . . . so many to choose from but word of mouth advertising is best in my opinion. Thanks again, keep pouring and be safe out there.
  7. I'm getting started to pour and was wondering if the colorants available from different company's are basically the same? Or does there appear to be a better colorant available from one particular company. Thought's, thanks in advance Roger
  8. The product I was referring to is Flotation Beads. I do realize it will effect the color, but I was just testing the waters so to speak. I want to have my recipe for the color to compensate for the color wash out. I know I can add them at anytime and I will probably will add them after heating but I was just curious. Thanks for your input
  9. Thanks Anglinarcher, I saw the Spike site, in fact they are where I found the Pourasol. I thought the right up on the product sounded good, but you know how that is when someones trying to sell you something. They make it sound like it's the best thing since sliced bread, I'm not saying they can lie, but people will tell you anything to sell it to you. Just wanted to know a little more about the product and the company it's with. Thanks again for your input
  10. I was wondering if it it possible to add a floating agent to the plastisol before heating? Currently hand pouring and want to maintain plastic temperature as long as possible.Thanks in advance, Roger
  11. Pourasol™ 4561 Medium Has anyone here used or familiar with this product? Results? Thoughts?
  12. I am green as grass on this subject, so as with many newbies, I could use some help from some experienced people to be open to share. I was intrigued by the thought of getting samples from some suppliers. I assume that by a sample they would supply pieces to feel the different soft to hard mixes of their product. Am I correct? Do you find that most offer this service or is it pretty rare. I have a restricted income so I can't afford to keep trying different plastisol to find the right hardness. Any ideas? Are there any here that might be willing to send me a scrap of one of their pours and the company they use. I'd be willing to pay for the postage . . . I assume would be the same as mailing a letter. What do you say?anyone out there wanna help an old man out? Thanks in advance, Roger
