  2. tuning balsa crank bait

    I am new to trying to make balsa crank baits and have used this forum extensively for info. When trying to tune my baits I damaged the lure because my twisted wire line tie is too rigid. Have read from this forum to use soft tempered stainless wire or dowels. I am glueing in some dowels as I write but can anyone tell me where to get soft tempered wire? Thanks! .

  4. Best Keitech swimbait mold

    Just got the ES ripper and boy I'm digging it, I've yet to pour but I have other ES molds so I expect it to do well. I have a single cavity one from Bass that works great but it is a single and better priced than the ripper aluminum from do it, I got a 4.8 from them as well i am looking forward to pouring this bait,

    So you are trying to clean your shooting star with this solvent?
  9. Crankbait Help

    I use egg sinkers and split shot, pinched onto my trebles, to determine how much ballast my lures need. I like my divers to hand down head first, with a steeper angle on the deeper divers. My maximum angle of hand down is 45 degrees+-. Like Anglinarcher said, I think the ballast point should be somewhere between the front and middle belly hangers, so I would add ballast to both of those hooks until I got the angle I wanted, and then weigh that ballast and add it between those two spots. I think right below your gill lines would be the best location, but, since you have two identical lures, you can try different locations to see which one works best for you.

    Thanks, guys. I’m familiar with MEK and was reluctant to have it around due to the low flashpoint. I went to the lead tech at our linings division and he suggested a product by VersaFlex called Dzolv. Flashpoint above 200, organic with no solvent smell. He told me to heat the pot(s) to 140 and flush with that. I have a gallon, will try it and report back.

  18. Shrinking tube stencil?

    Getting both sides to match can be done - even by those who do not have a great eye. There are always points of reference on a lure blank. They will be transfered to the stencil you make - like where the lat line meets the gill plate and the rear end of the blank. So here is what I do. I create my clam-shell stencil and cut the stencil on one side. Then I tape some tissue paper to the hinged part. Next I put the paper between a lure blank and the cut part, close the clam-shell, and paint the paper with dark detail paint. Next mark two reference points on the paper. Then remove the blank, push the paper to the other side, reinsert the blank, and line up those reference points, and back-light it. You can now use a sharpie to duplicate that pattern on the other side. What can I say, those who lack the talent to do things by "eye" have to compensate with other talents.
  19. Shrinking tube stencil?

    I have tried with partial success. IMHO you would need a true vacuu-form machine that preheats the plastic sheets. Or possibly preheat the sheets on a frame in your oven. Also you would need to create a positive slightly bigger than your lure. Also since the sheet would have to stretch the full depth of your lure (instead of just 1/2 needed for stencils), you would have to have a strong vacuum and a good seal.
  20. Videos for R Bends/Hagens Tool Loops Only?

    I have a Hagens tool and a tool that I believe is for R bends but I am struggling to find a good video to show how to make the spinnerbait bend. Mine are not very tight and do not look right for some reason. Help would be appreciated. Can I use the Hagens tool for those or does it only do loops? Thanks!

    Pete, Zman is now making a bucktail chatter bait that is sold exclusively in Dick's Sporting Goods. It may be on Zman's website though, would be something worth checking out for ideas maybe.
