  1. Cool, good luck. Have you watched these videos? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eVtfDFUlDD4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QrbFT3GOmwY
  2. NO - Make sure to warm your Injectors & Laminating Block also. Plastic solidify/hardens quickly in a cool laminating block.
  3. Watch and listen to what this guy does in this video. He loves to talk, his technique is at the 22:50 mark. Hope this helps. Good luck. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aglkJ1BO-nQ
  4. Lower the temperature of your plastic. About 320* Hold pressure for only 10 seconds. Make sure the sprue has not harden or sealed up. Top off sprue with hot plastic from your injector and or cup. Get a Sprue Extender. Sprue Extender gives large cavity molds additional hot plastic to draw from as the mold cools.
  5. Clear Dipping - After gluing on the eyes, dip your swimbait In clear plastisol covering just past the eyes. The top swimbait is Clear Dipped.
  6. Watch this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c8nxe8E66AQ&t=9s
  7. I do not have this mold, but the web site spells out 5 cavity. Also under Accessories you can buy extra rods. There it says "Molds originally come with rods". Try calling A.I. Hope this helps a little.
  8. Check out this old post https://www.tackleunderground.com/community/topic/7629-need-recipe-for-blue-fleck-worms/
  9. I have a bottle of it. Yes it is a purple/plum color, you use blue flake in your plastic. Zoom and others makes Blue Fleck worms.
  10. In the first post Deadly Buck asked. What is the best clear coat that combines ease of use, smooth finishes and affordability? Devcon 5 Minute Epoxy is not it! Devcon 2 Ton is real good. ( You only get about 5 minutes working time ) Devcon 5 Minute Epoxy - Water resistant Devcon 2 Ton - Waterproof You do the math. It's a simple choice.
  11. Get the Basstackle Twinjector Kit 6oz It is expensive, but the best one out there. Just break it down for one color injecting. https://www.basstackle.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=TWINJECTOR
  12. Glad you got it to work. The reason I wanted you to try a straight stick, was just find out if you mold or your clamping method was bad. The plan was to eliminate things that might be giving you problems (no salt in the core). Clamping the bottom half of your mold could force the top to open up a little, so you need to clamp the top. A warm Injector also helps.
  13. First thing I would try is just a straight stick worms no rods. (you can keep remelting, until you get it right) Use a lower temp. and lighter pressure when shooting. Try shooting without the vise. If you have to use the vise, try using a clamp on the top. No salt in the core. Make sure you have clean/clear opening at the head of the worm. 350* for the cores should be okay. You might be shooting the cores with to much pressure also. If you have hot plastic and a open core, they should shoot fine. Good luck, keep trying.
  14. Try posting in the Wire Baits Forum You will be better off wire tying your baits
  15. All colors are different, some just flow better then others. Add a little clear power paint to your black, it should flow a little better. The better it flows, the less air pressure you need. Good luck.
  16. We're doing some updating! Our site's down for some awesome updates and maintenance. We'll be back soon, so don't go far!
  17. Search YouTube TreysArt one word no space
  18. Check out this thread. https://www.tackleunderground.com/community/topic/37277-dead-on-plastix-durability-issues/?tab=comments#comment-304361
  19. It is hard to get good consistent results. Read some of the posts here. (post 18 & 20?)
