  1. Thanks guys. Full was in the back of my mind but a little fuzzy and can’t locate any paperwork.
  2. I’m getting ready to put lead back in mine. Cleaning was a pain because it was full. Is it necessary to keep it full?
  3. Thanks for that link. That one is very close. I looked at their site and found mine. It is the 733.
  4. Where I bought this craw mold. There is no indication of any company. Do any of you recognize it?
  5. Wow it was nasty. It took a long time to clean it up. I even had to use a torch to clean the plunger. I will endeavor to be more selective in my lead and more diligent in fluxing.
  6. Thanks for the response. I think I will clean it out and be more careful in the future.
  7. I’ve had mine for 3 or 4 years and have done a bunch of jigs. I flux when I add lead. I have a variety of lead types from plumbers lead to printers lead and even some physics balls. They all get mixed in depending on how hard I want the lead. I have never emptied it and cleaned it like the Lee pot that I had. It isn’t flowing fully. I ran a spinnerbait wire up it and nothing changed. Do you guys run yours out occasionally and clean them?
  8. As for blade selection, for night fishing on Bull Shoals in AR, I’ve done best with a silver blade and black skirt. When running a tandem, Colorado copper blades with red/black skirt and with a bright moon everything white.
  9. That can be someone else’s decision. Mine is finished.
  10. I don’t know that there is one. The only problem I could see is maybe stiffen the silicone and create flash which lead to the silicone in the first place. I don’t want to go down that road again.
  11. I checked it this morning to see if it would flake off the silicone, no. I used aQtip and acetone to clean part of it. Next time I think I will just spray then clean up with acetone. It will be a lot simpler.
  12. Taping was a pain but worth it I guess.
  13. I got the mold taped up and sprayed this morning. I’ll let it dry while I go fishing.
  14. Ted I have a silicone mold just laying around. I sprayed it and the dropout stuck to it and won’t wipe off so I guess I’ll do some taping before spraying.
  15. Cadman put me on to this several years ago. This stuff is great. I have cleaned and recoated several molds. However, I have a mold that I modified with high temp silicone and had to redo some of the cavities. In this process some of the drop out got removed. My question is: should I cover all of the silicone before spraying or just spray over it.
