  1. New jointing method for Swimbaits?

    Musky, I think you are right..I found some of this at Cabela's and order it in the different sizes they had ...They aren't cheap...your at a little more than a dollar a chain!!..I just want to check them out..I still don't know if it is a usable option..Nathan

  4. New jointing method for Swimbaits?

    Definitely have to use SS..I was doing some research and this stuff comes in all sizes.. Mark, I wouldn't cut my bait in half..Just drill out each side slightly larger than the chain, a little 5 minute epoxy on the chain..a little down the hole and feed the chain down the the hole with a tooth pick..etc..let dry on one side then do the other side...What do you think?..Nate
  5. Has anyone seen this method before?....looks easy enough..and bead chain is fairly strong...Nathan

  8. Women's nails as diving bills

    I've been reading about guys using these nails on fly patterns to make them swim...These things come in Clear and several colors as well as a bunch of shapes and sizes...Anyone tried them on crank baits?...It would be easy to tune them with a set of nail clippers!!..Nathan

  12. photo wrapping short round crankbaits

    I use the spray on laquer you can get it at Walmart in the spray paint section...Just a couple thin coats is all you need...I think it works better than spray on poly a Riki's to coat the decals with..Nathan
  13. KBS and Glitter

    You can mix your glitter in with a little poly acrylic..that way you can put the glitter where you want it and it will stay where you put it..also you can use different color glitters if you choose too...a little green glitter brushed across a brown back..or a little pearlescent on a white belly...etc..Nathan

    You may want to look into decal setting solution..after you apply the decal you brush some of this on and It softens the decal and makes it lay better...... Some also claim that vinager will do the same thing..I've never tried it Anglinarcher was right about the warm water to soak the decals in too..Nathan
  15. KBS and Glitter

    I do all the time with no problems..but I put my glitter on BEFORE I top coat..Nathan
