Pvc Bait

8 posts in this topic

Go to Home Depot, Menards, Lowes, etc. Go to the lumber section and look for deck boards. You'll see the PVC material boards back there. Also, you can look in the edging section (boarders for floors, doors, etc), there will be some PVC material in there too. Also, do a search here, there are lots of posts about what kind of PVC people are using and how it works.

The brand I use, AZEK, is carried by both Lowe's and Home Depot. Or they can order it.

There are other brands.

I've found the PVC trimboard is the most buoyant, even within the AZEK line.

I'm pretty sure it is in other brands, too.

DON"T try and use Trex! It sinks like a rock.

Some wood is worse than other wood. There are (mainly) tropical species that cause severe allergic reactions. But the common inexpensive woods we tend to use for carving are not on the whole dangerous. 

 

Inhaling ANY particulate compromises respiratory function, and is best avoided. 

 

Inhaling synthetic materials is another matter. Inorganic substances do not on the whole degrade in normal environments (such as your lungs) so any that you do aspirate are going to be there a very long time. 

 

DO NOT INHALE PVC DUST. You only get one set of lungs, and they are useful. Ask anyone with reduced respiratory function, it is not a good life.

Amen!!!!!!

 

A dust mask is mandatory, or you'll be in trouble real quick.  The dust has electrostatic charge, so it sticks to everything, and will, at a minimum, raise hell with your sinuses.  But breathing it into your lungs is a disaster.
