  1. Tackle Show Opinions

    There's 3 people who make money at a tackle show. IT AINT YOU It is however.... The Hall The Show promoter ...and the IRS.......... Tackle shows are a complete and utter waste of time and money. Glorified flea markets in most cases.

    I agree but take it one step further. Get yourself thin, medium and thick CA glue and some accelerator. I use CA to hold the nose loops in on my darters. In EVERY test I have done pulling, pushing, twisting, etc you will BREAK a .062 stainless wire before the CA bond will fail. The thick will fill gaps....
  5. Kbs Diamond Top Coat

    Hi Nathan unfortunately there are some things I cannot show. There are some very specialized purpose built machines here that I cannot let be viewed online. I show a few of our machines on Youtube but there is stuff that would get cloned in an instant if I showed in operation. That being said if you are up near Boston please look me up I'd be happy to give you the .05 tour.

    LOL Hi Mark!
  8. Kbs Diamond Top Coat

    ? 2 year old thread? Not going to waste my time researching this. It's a well known issue. Still bubbles with this product today. Not sure what your beef is that you bumped a 2yo thread...
  9. Bob Smith Epoxy

    BSI 30 min with one coat is a pretty substantial thickness coating. Highly recommend a real camels hair brush to lay this stuff down. Use Acetone to clean the brush after and can be reused over and over as long as you clean the brush well. It's a 93 gloss coating. IMO one of the best to use on home builder baits. Sensitization is a problem with any epoxy resin. Gloves are highly recommended also. PPE first.

    I'm drawing a blank here.
  12. Kbs Diamond Clear Coat Aerosol Can Update

    I recognize those lures
  13. Tester Paints

    Testors and Bob Smith Epoxy work fine I can tell you this. 2-3 drops of denatured (NOT RUBBING) alcohol. People pick up these lures constantly and love the finish on them.
  14. new luremaking software

    Google Sketchup works great. Many free or low cost out there. All can be converted to gcode.
  15. new luremaking software

    It's free but you get nothing out of it. They don't give you any gcode etc. You have to buy from them.
