  1. If he's using those pouring cups he can't put those in a micro. He'll have to get pyrex cups to do that; But I do agree that a micro is easiest of all.
  2. I wouldn't mess with a burner. Get yourself a hotplate. Much easier to control heat.

    I hear you. I've got a wall full of trophies fishing my own stuff. Most people don't understand that in well fished lakes the fish start to learn what hurts them.

    I like the way you think. Outside the box has always been good for me as well.
  5. worked pretty good. Feathers have nice action when you pulse the retrieve.
  6. I have but I use a pinch of white pearl powder with it. Comes out just fine.
  7. I think you might be refering to me for the 3 color hand pour. I do it with a pyrex 4 cup. The divider is a one piece folded into a "V" and JB welded into the cup. The center section is about 1/2 the volume of the others. If I remember correctly I posted a pic of the cup in the gallery. I just checked the gallery. The pics of the baits are there but the pic of the cup is not; along with most of my pics. Don't know what happened but maybe one of the Admins can help.
  8. Littleriver; Seems to be but those are just plain silver. You want something that is holographic.
  9. Don't use an open flame on the glue; you'll be sorry. Lay the foil on the glue which is on the bait. The burnishing is done with a tool ( I use a plastic stick that has a soft end so as not to tear the foil). You rub or "burnish" the mylar that holds the foil so it sticks to the glued areas. Then you peel the mylar off and the foil transfers to the bait.
  10. I don't paint them; I apply a photo finish on them.
  11. Mark; It's not the feathers you have to worry about. lol
  12. Just look at history. "Everything old is new again"; sooner or later.
  13. I've had a split cup and used it in the micro thousands of times over the last 10+ years with no problems. I also made a cup with 3 chambers. What you have to worry about is the shiny parts of the metal showing; those will spark in the micro. I use a black marker on the outside of the cup to hide the edges of the metal that show through the glass. If the cup is done correctly it will work in the micro; I'd be more afraid of the griddle as I have had pyrex explode on me before. I was never so thankful for wearing corrective glasses.
  14. Monte; do you have LC's natural? If you do try a drop at a time till you get what you want.
