  1. Has anyone ever used a thin superglue (penetrates well) and accelerator to instantly cure the glue used to seal the thread? If so, did the accelerator leave a residue on the material (natural, silicon, or rubber)?
  2. I’ve been using Loon’s UV clear fly finish THIN to coat and secure my swimjig and bladed jig 3D eyes after sticking them on. I’m finding the coating insufficient at times as the eyes are breaking loose every now and then. Thin is awesome on the threads as finishing cement, but I’m wondering if UV THICK would be a better choice to finish the heads/eyes. Any experience with both to confirm I’m thinking correctly? thx!!
  3. I’m using Gorilla Super Glue Gel (have also tried locktite gel)... seems like every other head turns out like this because the tiniest bit of gel squeezes out around the weedguard. Is this just a case of “tough luck use less glue” or is there a super glue (gel or otherwise) that truly dries clear/leaves no hazy residue?
  4. So I’ve been making jigs for a few years now and from time to time, some type of residue stains my jig heads after I cure them in my toaster oven. It seems that you can only see it on the white or lighter colored jig heads. I first started noticing the residue in the racks in the toaster oven. Thought it was rust at first so I bought a new toaster oven, but the first time I used the new one the same thing happened. All of the hooks I use are black nickel finish. Could that finish be melting off in my toaster oven? If so, am I getting it too hot? I usually bake my heads for 25 minutes on 350 degrees.
  5. Looking for some references to get a custom jig mold created. I have hand drawings of what I’m looking for. Just need someone to put it in CAD and then Mill it. also - does anyone know the cost of getting spin cast molds made? I’m trying to figure out the numbers to go from hand pouring to a spin caster.
  6. Hey all. Have a few questions but I’ll start with 2 and go from their. 1-whats the easiest way to foil some saltwater diamond, flutter, speed jigs as a diy from home. 2- where is the best place to get foil that have nice holographics or even better would be have fish patternes. Thanks.
  7. I'm looking for a jig vise that can hold heavy jigs. This looks like a vise that can hold heavy jigs. Any one got one? I'm tempted to buy one to tie some heavy saltwater jig from 4 oz to 16 oz. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01LG4PP6W/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A2NFPA6A0EUMO0&psc=1
  8. I am still very new to airbrushing custom fishing lures, I was wondering if I can use my airbrush to paint lead-head jigs?
  9. i'm thinking of making own jigs,chatterbaits,spinnerbaits and buzzbaits out of tin or Aluminum. has anyone had any success trying this?
  10. I'm looking for a company that makes finess skirt tabs. I know fishingskirts.com has a selection but Its very limited
  11. I tried to upload a drawing, quality didn't work out. Deleted post.
  12. I am looking for a flipping jig head with a horizontal line tie like below. The lead head appears to encapsulate the line tie, has a weight forward design and is a little wider than some jigs you find. I just want the jig head, no weedguard, unpainted, no skirt, with a Gamakatsu hook. 1/8" hole for weedguard is fine. 5/16oz and 1/2 oz are preferred weights with corresponding hook sizes 3/0 - 5/0 regular round bend Gamakatsu Hook. Where can I find this? I'd love to find a place or person who makes custom jig heads I can order in bulk but no luck so far. Don't want to pour my own heads, just want to paint, add weedguard and skirt.

    Perch

    Rabbit hair Perch . I used a minnow head and powder coated it with a technique I have developed over the years. There are four different colors of paint and some glitter. Five coats of clear finish. No two paint jobs are the same. There in an orange piece of rabbit on the belly and fire tiger holographic flashabou on the flanks. The length of the jig is approximately six inchs

    Making myself some jigs for rock fishing.
  16. Last year I was asked to make a few Christmas ornaments from hair jigs. This is what I came up with. I made one today for a friend. anyone else make an ornament?
  17. Any recommendation for any metal available on the market that is around 25% less dense then lead and a still good metal, or metal mix combination, that will be good for pouring jigs? thank you in advance
  18. Does anybody know of a process that will keep paint off the swivel on a horsehead/roadrunner jig?
  19. This jig was designed by BASS pro Lucas Ragusa. It features a monster Owner XXX Strong hook, and the perfect head design to slide through the thickest of cover. This skirt is his go to color. When the bite gets tough, you bet this is in his hand.

  20. Does anyone know where to purchase the twisted wire used for weedguards in some jigs. I have also seen it used on PJ's Lures Shakey Heads. Thanks
  21. I'm new here and tried to search for bleeding colors with know results. Hopefully someone can help me out. I pour crappie jigs and then use the VPI paint to color the tops of them. Works great on all colors but Pink and or Orange. Does anyone have any ideas? It doesn't matter if the jig is char or white, or even clear. Orange or pink sprayed on will result in bleeding after a few weeks. I have had this problem with the pink and orange when I use those colors in plastisol as well. They will bleed over to the lighter colors. There has to be away since there are so many plastic jigs and worms on the market thta have char and pink or ornage in combimation. ANt help would be apprciated. Thanks
  22. Anyone know what causes pitting in lead pours. I'm pouring 2-3 oz lead jigs, not smooth. the mold is smooth, but I get little craters all over. thanks for your input
  23. This is really important where can I find this skirt material without the blue flake in it and maybe black fish scale instead of the brown I would really appreciate it if you guys would help me out !
  24. Hello all, I want to pour my own jig heads using a 2-part pop mold? Has anyone ever done this? My mold is completely dry. I have seen videos on Youtube showing lead being poured into wood molds and I have read on here about silicone and possibly bondo, but nothing about Plaster. I use 2-part pop molds for pouring plastics and have no issues with flashing. Basically, on Christmas day I am going to try this, but I would like to know if any of you have tried this or know about this and what help/info you can provide me. There is enough safety info on this website that you can't miss it. So, the only question I would like to have answered is simply "can you use POP molds to pour lead jigs?" Thanks in advance for any help/info you can offer up and Happy Holidays!
  25. Hey everyone. I've really enjoyed making my own jigging spoons thanks to the help of the great people on this site. Fishing has been very good thanks to my custom lures and others have noticed. Which brings me to the question. Are there any legal issues in selling jigs made with a Do-It Mold?
