  1. Judgie, I tried to wear out my personal stirrer by loading regrinds to the top of my presto pot. A half hour later I had liquid. I have done this at least 6 times and the results are the same.
  2. I haven't run one everyday. but I don't see why it wouldn't keep running. I have a couple that I have used for the past 2 1/2 years and the only thing I did was replace the controller because the original didn't shut off I would have to unplug it to stop it to fill the injector(s). If you are in a well ventilated area the motor will never get hot and that is what usually kills them. The maker and I found material that doesn't allow heat transfer from the pot to the motor plate so the motor stays room temperature. If you pour or shoot outside take into effect the sun light heating the motor. These stirrers allow you to keep a lower temperature and reduces scorching (depending on plastic). If you depend on regrinds a lot this might not be the stirrer for you. If you start out with virgin and add a little regrinds at a time this is what it was made for. We are making an affordable stirrer for the hobbiest not the full-on production crew. We will probably not make these again because of the costs and labor involved. Spend $60 to make $20 not including the cost of labor. Some of the materials are very hard to get right now (told production was stopped due to Covid and will go back into production later this year). We have found that enclosing or trying to insulate the motor just kept in the heat resulting in failure. If you are interested we are taking orders and as soon as they are ready we will notify you by email and invoice you on paypal. Thanks Randy! Once they are finished what ever is not preordered with go up on ebay for $95.00. COST: With shipping to the lower 48 $85.00 ipsenconnect@mail.com
  3. This is my personal stirrer I use all the time. Checkout the pic. I tried to to upload a video and it wouldn't let me.
  4. I am going to help the maker by doing some machining and handle the sales. He makes 2 models. I have used both models for the past 3 years with no issues. If you use a lot of regrind wait for the bigger motor if your mixing virgin the little one works great. My One with a high torque smaller motor and another with a little larger motor. They are high quality made with expensive components. Super simple to use and comes with a variable control that turns off (most don't you have to un-plug). $85 includes tax and shipping. We are wrapping up 15 units today and I know 5 are spoken for. You can email me at ipsenconnect@mail.com I will invoice you using paypal.
  5. This is a Contenti 12 inch spincast machine. I bought it used this past September for $1600. These are hard to find on the west coast. I kept waiting for one to show up in California under $2000, it never happened. I drove to Texas to buy it. I bought it to mass produce my weights but something bigger presented itself. It is made for 9" and 12" molds you can fit most molds up to 12 inch. It runs real smooth and quiet. I need to sell it no reasonable offer refused. If you are in So. Cal. and are looking to ramp up production without the super high costs this is the next step. Thanks for looking.
  6. I saw presto pot stirrers on ebay. They were made for plastisol. There were 5 on there and they are gone now. I put it on my watch list and contacted the seller. He got back to me and said he will post more when the parts come in. They were $85 with free shipping.
  7. I am currently shooting the do-it ned molds (midwest finesse). Does anyone know which shop cuts those molds? or a shop that can cut the same mold? I don't have $1000's so I prefer someone who is already cutting that mold. I was quoted $1400 just to do the drawing. I draw in CAD, I just need a shop. Thank you for any help you can give me.

Being a tool and die maker I have produced a lot of my own molds but i don't have a reliable CNC shop to produce my spin molds. Do you have a reliable shop? Thanks Randy ipsenconnect@mail.com
  11. I am wanting to try the LBS shad mold made by CNC molds and stuff. I here it is good replica of a real threadfin shad but know one has figured out a good way to rig them.

  12. Mark, thanks for the tip I will try that.
  13. Do you have a couple more for sale?

  15. Who makes an IKA mold (or just the body). I have two molds that are 8 cavities, but I don't know who made them. I bought them from someone on this site. Thank You for any help you can give me. Randy, Tournament Strong
