Multi Cavity Whiggley Mold Video

Just wanted to let you guys know I posted a new video of making a multi cavity production mold of my Mily (Larry's nickname for my Whiggley design). In the video, I show a couple unique processes ... first laser engraving RC-3 cast masters to give them detail and texture. Next making a 5 cavity mold using our Trans 40 platinum base silicone rubber ... which is a semi translucent silicone that allows you to see the masters and know exactly where you are cutting when removing them. Lastly, I will show you the exact percentages and process I use for pouring my Milys.

Hope the video is informative. Please let me know if you have any questions on any of the processes.

I was introduced to this rig from the guys at Hardcore Lures in Sweden when fishing their Pike Strike. It is a screw lock nose with centering pin and a leader attached to two trebles that are pegged by a pin for each treble. Looks like this ... http://www.makelure.com/shared/upload/mike_img3064.jpg

I love them because they are completely versatile to any bait I wish to make and throw. Am using them now for all the bulldawg style baits that we made off of real fish. So nice not having to make an insert for every single lure I pour.

It runs great as I'm assuming you saw in the video and is much easier to make the lures as there is no insert other than the bbs I add for weight when pouring my Alumisol.

I'm now making these rigs my self. Bought the components online from aliexpress ... which is similar to amazon but overseas.

Hope this helps.
