howdy yall! I was talking with a guy I work with about a mold I cut on my CNC mill at work. The mold was a tail for a cast swim bait, it turned out great! so I was wondering why not just print on my 3D printer! I did a few quick designs and printed them out. It works GREAT!! you can go from design to water in a day! I have attached a few pics, the aluminum tail mold and then one of a jig body (black mold) and the other (white mold) is a tail i am going to use on a crank bait I'm making. Let me know what yall think!
Hey guys I make 6.5" and 8.5" swimbaits made out of poplar wood and they have incredible action. However, I am debating on cutting down on the time of carving all of these out and switching to resin. I have no clue how to get started on this or what the best/optimal process is for converting my wood baits to resin. I dont know what resin I need, what mold making/silicone material I need. Should I cut the wood blank into segments before casting the mold and then piece it together after the resin one is cast? Or should I cut the resin into segments after it is cast? Can anyone give me a step by step process that works for them? Or maybe even a video? Thanks, Paden
Anybody know of a place to buy this at a cheap price? The Alumilite products are too expensive and the container is tiny and will only make 1-2 molds. I see videos on YouTube of people in other countries with Gallon jugs of it making their own molds, but have no idea where to buy it in bulk in the US.
