    Wooden molds..can it be done?

    Thanks for all the help and feedback guys!!..Nathan
  7. Ok guys..I’m a wooden bait guy..I haven’t poured plastic in years and even then it was nothing like you guys do now.. I also tie fly’s..attached is a picture of a dragonfly pattern I’m working on.For the butt I used a Trout worm which worked perfectly but the worm is to stiff for my liking so I thought I’d pour my own.I’m looking for a easy mold to make...The diameter is about 1/8th inch and about 2” long.I thought I would add about 1/4” section necked down to a 1/16th” so it’s easy to tie to a hook. My Thought is to take two halves of wood and drill out with appropriate sized drill bits where the halves meet then spray the heck out of them with high heat paint to seal them up ..I would add appropriate spue holes at the top and bottom..What do you guys think?..Thanks..Nathan

    Loon mixing cup

    Just wanted to pass along a useful tool...I’ve built wooden Baits for over 25 years and just came across this a few months ago...buy one of these Loon mixing cups...They work fantastic for mixing up your top coat.Because they are made of a silicone type product the epoxies won’t stick to it...when the left over epoxy in the cup is dry..just squeeze the cup and the epoxy pops right out.It will be the best 8.00 bucks you’ll spend..They are available through Amazon..Nathan

    Glue for soft fins in hard swimbait

    What are the fins coated with?..The fins I Make have clear silicone over them..The best thing I’ve found for holding them in is superglue jel..Nathan

    Lisa and eds eyes

    I received a phone call from Lisa from Ed and Lisa’s eyes this morning.She was upset over the misunderstandings here.She was very upset over the problem with ddl’s order..just let me say..There are two sides to every story..and I’ll leave it at that. I couldn’t begin to tell you how many orders I’ve placed with them through the years.I’ve always received great service with timely shipments and at great prices..Nathan
