Acrylic Duck Call Blanks, Hand Cast with 5/8″ hole and 5/8″ Tenon. Save Time! Custom Orders Available!

Acrylic Info Our acrylic blanks are all cast by hand using a special polyester resin. They turn very well and are not as brittle as custom-acrylic-blanksextruded acrylic. A drop on a garage floor from 8 feet may chip but usually won’t break, although like any call, they are not bullet proof. We do vacuum our resin an a chamber before casting, and while we take every precaution we can, sometimes there may be pinhole size voids in the blank. Most of the time these can be turned through with no real change in the call. There is almost always casting marks from the mold and mold release on the outside of the blank. In the instance that you get a blank with a large hole that cannot be turned through, please contact us about a replacement or credit. Holes may not be 100% centered so minor truing may be needed when turning the blank. The acrylic is made from polyester resin and does contain chemicals which may be toxic. Blanks should not be used for food usage

Colors When you see a picture in our store, this is the blank you will be getting or another blank from the same cast. There may be minor differences in color or pattern. Colors on the site are the best we can do by photo and may be slightly varied from color shown.

Pearl: Means this blank has mica pearl in it.

Glitter: Same as mica pearl but more of a bassboat look to it.

Transparent: Light will transmit through the blank

Semi transparent:  Light will transmit through the blank slightly but you will not be able to see through it. 

Swirl: two colors swirled together. May include pearl, transparent, etc. 

Barrel Blanks are 3″ +/- 1/8″. The outer diameter is 1.610″ and the hole is bored at 5/8″ (.625). Due to the casting process, inner bore may not be perfect center so minor truing of the blank may be necessary.

Insert Blanks are cast with a 5/8″ tenon. The tenon is 2.5″ long. There is a 1/4″ of taper then the bell size is 1 5/16″ diameter by 1.75″ tall. Essentially you should just be able to stick an insert blank into a 5/8″ collet chuck, turn the bell shape, drill the insert, and cut in a jig!

Custom Orders are possible. You need to contact us ahead of time as there could be up to a week lead time before we can cast them. We will do our best to get the exact color(s) you want. We CAN cast solid blanks without holes at roughly 1.5′ diameter and up to 9″ long.  To order custom blanks, please click here!
