rust preventive packets

7 posts in this topic

i saw on TV once, an add for a packet that you could put in your tackle box to absorb moisture to prevent rust from forming. and Ron Kline told me he uses the silicon packs that come with equipement to do the same. ok . my question is, does anyone know where to find these to buy? del

silica gel is available at Galyans. It is often found used in safes to prevent moisture. You could use a small mesh bag (like a spice bag ) and when you want to recharge it, you bake it for a while.

Run down to a welding or production shop, and ask a welder to give you the silica packs they put in the tubs of wire. Odds are good they have a lot laying around, they just get tossed out. The silica packs are about the size of a hand warmer pack.
They work well for preventing rust in Small to mid sized storage comportments and tackle boxs.

The welding wire tubes make for some good storage units too, grab them if you can talk them out of a few, bigger shops go through a lot of them.

I have the companys HSOforum saved to my favorites delmut. Its www.theinhibitor.com They seem to be pretty reasonable cost wise. After opening up my ice jig box this fall and seeing all the rust it seems like cheap insurance to me.

I got a bunch of The Inhibitor cards as a promo item and I'm trying 'em out in the box this year. The principle is that they emit a vapor which arrests corrosion before it starts. Just a little rust in a jig-eye is enough to sever that mono when you need it most!

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
