I am having a hard time removing the pull pin from my Egg Sinkers once casted. Is there some sort of trick?

If the sinkers are allowed to cool removing the pin can be difficult if not impossible. The pull pin should be oiled slightly or smoked with candle soot before starting and occasionally during the pouring session. An oily rag works well. Insert the rod from the hinge end of the mold. After the lead is poured into the cavities, the pull pin should be removed immediately using a twisting motion. Failure to oil or smoke the pin before the first pour, or allowing the lead to cool in the mold will make withdrawal of the pin difficult.

When pouring jigs, I can only get one or two good jigs out of ten. What am I doing wrong?

How much thinner do I need to add to CS Coatings Vinyl Jig & Lure Paint?

Vinyl paints will appear thick when cold. THIN WITH CAUTION! First warm paint to room temperature by placing container in a warm water bath. Next, stir paint thoroughly with a wooden stir stick, being careful not to damage can lining. If paint still appears heavy, thin sparingly with appropriate thinner. lf paint is thinned too much it will lose its ability to cover.
