Made my own Ned Rig head mold (vulcanized)

Recommended Posts

So I love to make YouTube videos and here is my latest and how I have started making vulcanized rubber molds. Yes, there are a couple of issues that are easy to fix (better master, proper hook size) but I am happy so for...

Where did you buy the vulcanized blank? Seems like it has potential. I've been using high temp silicon to make 2 part molds for the last couple years. Works well, but they don't always last.

Very interesting. I wonder how it holds up compared to my method. My guess is a lot better! Thanks for sharing.... other than you just filled my Amazon cart.....

Another source https://www.ottofrei.com/Castaldo-Econosil-Price-Per-Lb

they have whole line of castaldo mold making supplies.

Wonder where I can get a bigger frame than the standard 2 x 3 inches?  Thinking of making one using square aluminum tubing 2 x2 inches ... Also I have t-shirt press which supplies heat and pressure, not sure how well that would work.

Great video Mad Moose.

What purpose did the alum frame serve? Very nice idea.

The rubber would spread/flatten to much during the heat/compression process

Have you been able to find other sizes? I found 2.5 x 3.75 x 1 HERE

Sorry it took me a while to get back to you!

Actually didn't see yours! I had found a couple of videos where the guy makes pendants and went from there. 

Did find your post via search just now. Nifty jigs!

Great topic and video !   Instead of cutting a sprue afterwards a worm weight works great for a sprue shape . Drill a small hole in the master  jig  head just big enough for a short piece of spinnerbait arm wire . Put the wire in the hole you drilled and slide the worm weight onto the wire up against the master . Check alignment to make sure it's straight for a clean parting line .

Awesome suggestion! I have started making cones from polymer clay but this is even easier.

I do something similar. I use the sprue from some of my Do-it Molds.
