  3. Clearcoat

    wrong forum, try hard baits
  4. Wrap lures help

    Well not trying to be a smart arse but try introducing yourself and a little back ground. There is a search function you can look through and get a lot of answers and there are a lot of guys that will help and guide if asked properly. there is a member tutorial at the bottom of the forum which is a great help.
  5. Lure lip material option...

    are they for bass or another fish
  6. Lure lip material option...

    you'll have to weigh them to see there is any difference and best advise is to make a few with the different lip material and try them out. If your a bait builder you should always do your R&R on your own and see what best suits your baits.

    TYPES OF STAINLESS STEEL The three main types of stainless steels are austenitic, ferritic, and martensitic. These three types of steels are identified by their microstructure or predominant crystal phase. Austenitic: Austenitic steels have austenite as their primary phase (face-centered cubic crystal). These are alloys containing chromium and nickel (sometimes manganese and nitrogen), structured around the Type 302 composition of iron, 18% chromium, and 8% nickel. Austenitic steels are not hardenable by heat treatment. The most familiar stainless steel is probably Type 304, sometimes called T304 or simply 304. Type 304 surgical stainless steel is an austenitic steel containing 18-20% chromium and 8-10% nickel. Ferritic: Ferritic steels have ferrite (body centered cubic crystal) as their main phase. These steels contain iron and chromium, based on the Type 430 composition of 17% chromium. Ferritic steel is less ductile than austenitic steel and is not hardenable by heat treatment. Martensitic: The characteristic orthorhombic martensite microstructure was first observed by German microscopist Adolf Martens around 1890. Martensitic steels are low carbon steels built around the Type 410 composition of iron, 12% chromium, and 0.12% carbon. They may be tempered and hardened. Martensite gives steel great hardness, but it also reduces its toughness and makes it brittle, so few steels are fully hardened. There are also other grades of stainless steels, such as precipitation-hardened, duplex, and cast stainless steels. Stainless steel can be produced in a variety of finishes and textures and can be tinted over a broad spectrum of colors.

  10. Question About Selling Custom Painted Cranks

    And the IRS is ALWAYS watching whether you think so or not
  11. SolarEz... Am I missing something?

    check this out, you will be surprised on how well this works
  12. Decal paper

    I haven't used it but see no reason why it wouldn't work. I use " Tree House " high gloss clear acrylic. I get it a hobby lobby or micheals
  13. Decal paper

    I wouldn't use varnish as it will start to turn a amber color over time. Clear lacquer is best that I have found
  14. Decal paper

    depending on how big your bait is you can use small relief cuts along the edges to get the decal to lay down and don't wait to long to apply a clear coat to hold and seal the decal to the bait. I don't use decal set as I think it isn't necessary. And I let it air dry for about 15 minutes before I coat it. I don't use a hair dryer either to dry the decal. You will mess up a few before you get to where you will have it down pat, keep practicing.
