  1. Countbass on ebay. Allen
  2. About 1 in 25 of the Gama 345 break for me but the Mustad 32886 is at least 50%. Allen
  3. About 50% of the Mustads I used broke but the Gama has about a 5% break ratio and are much sharper. Allen
  4. a\About $7k USD between the equipment and the mold making materials. Allen
  5. Interesting, I have used the straight shank Owner worm hooks before but never thought of using these? Allen
  6. 2/0 on the ones I have. Allen
  7. Thanks for the offer but I went ahead and just bought one of the molds off Ebay. Allen
  8. Spincast machine and vulcanizer arrived Monday, lead pot came today. I have some silicone on order along with some other supplies. Still need to find some of those metal gate former discs. Allen
  9. Not really sure what happened unless the original had a lot of tin in it? Hard lead used for spincasting is lighter but only like 5%. Allen
  10. Just looked up the weighted hook mold. I have this one and have been using VMC 30 degree EWG hooks with this one. Let me find the model number. Allen
  11. Not sure about the other mold but they do fit the casting jig mold. Allen
  12. Thanks for the offer, I have the Do-It ones and the Shawn Collins one with rattles. Hoping to find some Collins ones to use as spincast masters. Allen
  13. Anyone on here that has one that can pour me some heads? I have the rattle head one but I need some regular heads poured and don't feel like buying $350 worth of molds to get 50 jigheads. Allen
  14. Gamakatsu 345 that lurepartsonline sells is the best I have used. Never tried the Eagle Claw ones. Allen
  15. You are getting too much paint on the jigs if you are getting dripping or nipples. Allen
  16. Tried an engraver on some lead heads and it just isn't steady enough. Guess I will have to try some clay for masters. Allen
  17. Anyone have any experience on making lead masters? I have saved up enough to buy a spincaster, vulcanizer, and the other things to start spincasting. Duplicating say Ned jigs is easy as I can just put some good ones from a Do-It mold together. The two things that I cannot figure out are; how to get details in say a spinnerbait head? Do you carve one out of another material first, etc? and how to calculate weight. Lead I know has a specific weight/density ratio that probably requires math that I gave up on years ago but how to actually calculate is beyond me. So anyone with any tips would be greatly appreciated . Allen
  18. Columbia coatings is where I get most of my paint. Harbor Freight isn't as good as any other paint I have tried but it will work. With that being said I would stay away from it until you get more experience. Allen
  19. Anyone know where I can buy some clam shells for 3.8" Keitech style swim baits? Ideally I would like ones like SK uses but will take anything right now. Allen
  20. Lurecraft sells one with a 30 degree flat eye Owner. Allen
  21. Can I just mix say a lb of bismuth with 10lbs of soft to make it harder? Allen
  22. Let me know if you find some for sale. Allen
