My first laminates


Recommended Posts

I'm getting ready to pour my first Do-It essential senko 5 inch worms.  Not ready for laminate yet but hope to soon.  Any hints you can provide would be appreciated.

The three biggest for me are. Steady even pressure, should be about a count of five to fill mold. Hold pressure for a count of ten once filled and top sprue off after removing injector.

 

Also purge air out of injector before shooting, either draw up a couple of ounces and shoot straight back into plastic and re-draw or turn injector upwards and push air out after filling injector. My injectors dont have a nozzle lock screw so I usually use first method trapping nozzle against bottom of measuring cup to keep nozzle from shooting off.  

 

And of course safety, safety, safety. No liquids around hot plastic, I do all my pouring outside, fumes. Gloves and glasses are a must.

 

 

Google, Worlds worst fishing.

No really... do you sell baits?  These look awesome, especially the color on the bottom.

I'm starting to give out samples to local guys mostly 7.5 ribbon tails, craws and jigs.

 

The open pours are pretty labor intensive, I'll have to up my game quite a bit to make any money on them.

 

I'll make some up and send them to you to review for me for free. GP it is, hope I can find my notes. I'll PM when ready.
