The Home Microwave

Recommended Posts

Just starting to recycle soft plastics in a mold. Is it ok to use the home microwave to melt the plastic or do i need to devote a microwave to luremaking. Wasn't sure about the fumes.

Thanks for the help.

I would not use the same microwave for soft plastics that you use for food.

I picked up the one I use at a thrift store for something like $14.  It is the nice older dial timer style too, which is perfect.  My toaster oven I use to cure powder painted weights and jigs was $3.   :whistle:

No reason to risk your health over a few dollars you'll be out buying a cheap microwave. I know I certainly wouldn't cure my jigheads in the same toaster oven my wife and I use to cook food in.

plastic is toxic stuff, not only will it stink up your house and linger for days, the toxins will probably stay in there for ever and activate when you cook your food in there.

 

i wouldnt even think about eating anything that came within 10' of my plastic microwave lol

Did it once, and Im never doing it again. The smell is terrible, and the baits didnt even look good becuase my mold ended up being crap. I am going to buy professionally made molds and go use my grill which has a burner on the side which is located on my back deck.
