Hi all

Happy new year! Hope it is a fruitful one.

I have finally submitted my thesis for review so I am back in the fishing game. Was extremely disappointed to miss the Bulshoek KBT. I have decided to make myself a couple of plastics. Does anyone know of a supplier for the Plastisol and whatever is needed to make a mold?

Thanks for the help

Bombasstic has turned some excellent stuff on his lathe. Awesome skills. Don't know about Plastisol suppliers though.

Nutt (from RealBaitCo - follow link on the right) in Parklands is you man. He imports and supplies plastisol and might even be able to assist on any old requirements you might have0

Coling Harding - mobile number on his website

Thanks for the replies!

Any idea where to get the silicone rubber to make the molds?

Also search the sealine forum as there are guides as to how to makes soft plastics. Good lucks.

Post pics of your end product.

Hi SSS
AMT Maitland 021-5112669 - but before you spend bucks on mould making - you should get out here to me and learn from my mistakes.
one of your biggest chalenges is the "injection" process and I have made a injector that works a treat and costs very little to make.
Cheers

I might just take you up on that offer. What did you use for your molds? I asked AMT for a quote and it is quite a hefty price for the rubber silicone.

My moulds are made out of silicone rubber and they handle the heat with no problems. You say amt is expensive?
About R150 a litre and that could make 2 or 3 moulds.
You could pay about $600 for a mould from the states.[ATTACHMENT NOT FOUND][ATTACHMENT NOT FOUND][ATTACHMENT NOT FOUND][ATTACHMENT NOT FOUND]

OH WOW! You are so the man to talk to!

Is the silicone rubber not a two part mixing solution? Cuz they quoted me R150/l for the one and R850/l for the other so I though you had to mix them :eusa_doh: . Are you using MOLD MAX 30/15?

Nav / KD - Thanks. The fun part is actually working with the lathe and coming up with wierd and wonderful things that you think a fish would find interesting.

My idea is to make the bead "senco" (almost like something one would find at Adult World - so I've been told), because I just imagine a fish keeping it in his mouth a bit longer because it feels nice on his tongue? . . . then after I've made that mould, add legs to the plug and pull a "legged senco" mould . . . . then add a grub tail . . . .

A-N-Y-W-A-Y

SSS - I'm using mold max 30 with SM032 catalyst (dark pink) - all inclusive in the R150

PS . . . . not that it's for me to tell anyone else what to do, or not . . . but, as easy as it is to rip a mould off a ZOOM or YUM or whatever - personally, I don't believe it's the right thing to do . . . and it's so easy to make you own plug.
I've been involved in music all my life and it's very frustration when people "tape" your songs instead of buying the album because I go without my royalties . . . not cool. :eusa_hand:
"Stealing" someones design is much the same.

That's just my personal view point.
