    Posted: 30 Oct 2018 at 11:31am
Hi all,

Anyone have any leads on any Australian people/companies that have experience in producing aluminium soft plastic lure moulds for hand injection?  I've spoken to a few injection moulding places but they work in high psi injection and more rigid materials, and regular CNC machinists don't have the experience in mould design...

Cheers,
Nick.

Joe Warmisham from Warisham Lures was advertising mould cutting a few years ago, no idea if he still does it. Apart from that there’s no one I’m aware of, most are in the US, UK, Russia, Ukraine, or Israel

Thankyou edgecrusher, I appreciate you taking the time to comment - I wasn't aware of Warmisham Lures, I will check them out...yes it seems that most of the time us Aussies can get cheap moulds from overseas so there has been little demand for custom (and probably more expensive) services here.
Cheers!

Not sure but I thin it was on this site a few months back someone was advising of some ubute work in this field they had done in china at a very reasonable rate.
Might be worth a google search
My son had a level winde for a long line turned up in stainless steel, on bearings ready to go for I think nealy $2000.00 less than Australia.
Sure some one was posting here about overseas moulds they had just had made

Thankyou Kimo and Doc :)

Kimo yes it's certainly cheaper overseas though as I have a proprietary design I am looking at local options first.

Doc I can't seem to be able to access private messaging...? My email is ndiggles@hotmail.com, would be interested to know how you can help!

Cheers,
Nick.

Hey mates just popped in been gone a while so I'm out of the loop some . Health has not been tip top . I saw this post and thought I might have another option for ya . There is a mold maker in Israel His name is Vitaly Osti . He can be found most easily on Face Book . He does custom molds for far less than U.S. makers. I have 5 from him and his customer service is very good. Hope this helps because I know you blokes are kept at a disadvantage . STILL you make top of the line products .
