I was casting some crankbaits the other day when I had a blow out on a mold. I thought to myself "What in the blue bloody blazes is going on". So I picked up the mold and demolded it before it had cured (first mistake) well resin was a drippin all over the place so I started rocking the molds to keep the resin from making a mess. In my distraught frame of mind I noticed that the resin had set with a concave profile. I took a solid bait mold and poured half of the normal amount of resin and plugged the fill hole with petroleum jelly and began to turn it off axis to coat the inside of the mold till it set. So low and behold I made a ! peace hollow body. So I started a new mold that has a solid plug with a modular type bill slot that can be inserted for cranks or removed for top water baits and a pin system to keep the line tie and hook hangers in place. The line tie pins are in 3 differant angles so I can adjust whether a crank chugger or a stick bait. I built a lure turner type rig that spins the mold in an off axis fashion to flow the resin evenly in the mold.
Has any one had any luck with this type of spin casting? A enquiring mind wants to know
