Plastic Formula for Hilts Foam Factory

7 posts in this topic

I have a Hilts Foam Factory that makes minnow lures out of hard plastic foam. I need a source for the plastic it uses, or the formula for the plastic. I've tried to get the info from Hilts, without result. Thanks.

15 years ago when I was a freshman in college, I had a 3" crankbait mold, I still have it somewhere. I probably only made 20-30 baits from it as the wire jig that came with it tore up really quick. If you have a kit, I would urge you to not use the wire jig that comes with and make one with nails in a board. It was fun and they caught fish. I never did put rattles in, but you could. I still have the mold buried in my garage somewhere. I should dig it out.
