    SS Wire Tensile Strength

    Any idea what the tensile strength of .041 SS wire typical of the wire forms sold at Lure Parts/Janns is? If its like most 304 SS wire 205,000 psi should be the tensile strength. Regards, Blades

    Weld or Solder SS wire to Brass question

    I actually did use a cheap steel Colorado blade and steel piano wire. But ultimately I want to use a plated blade and SS wire. Don't mind polishing off the plating down to the brass on the blade but SS won't solder to steel or brass unless I braze it. I don't want the final product to be steel music wire because it will rust. Regards, Blades

    Weld or Solder SS wire to Brass question

    Thanks guys. I was going to try and attach a blade to a SS wire. The wire would be part of the lure so brass won't work because of poor strucutral integrety. Tried some different methods using epoxy but again the blade/wire are part of the structural integrity. I did an experiment with steel wire with positive results. I think I'm going to abandon the idea. I sincerely appreciate the help. Regards, Blades

    Weld or Solder SS wire to Brass question

    Hello all. I'm experimenting with a new concept on a lure. Will be glad to share the final results and design once I figure it all out and have a final product with no rework . Issue: I want to attach (weld/solder) a .35 stainless wire to the underside of a Spinnerbait blade. (currently an Indiana blade or Colorado Blade.) I am struggling with this as I have tried several methods without much success. I do realize I need to get the plating off the blade or at least on the area I am attempting to attach the wire too or just work with a plain brass blade. I am going to experiment with some silver solder paste but am waiting on it to be delivered. Has anyone here attempted this and /or is anyone willing to share some knowledge based on there experience ? Thank you in advance. Regards, Blades

    best paint over powder paint?

    Yes sir. Polytranspar was a Wasco Taxidermy inc. Product and Mckenzee Taxidermy purchased them. There in North Carolina and can be found on the web. Regards, Blades

    best paint over powder paint?

    Yes sir , airbrush. I use RM Lacquer which is vertually impossible to source anymore but Polytranspar (brand) is very good and can be bought in small quantity. Not to discourage you but lacquer is a totally different animal than water base paint. ( Another subject altogether) I haven't searched the forum to see if there is info on basic use. Mckezee (spelling) taxidermy supply is the source for PT. Regards, Blades

    best paint over powder paint?

    Powder Coat / Bake Powder Coat / Paint with Acrylic Lacquer / Clearcoat. Lacquer will bond to the cured powder and wont come off unless cured powder chips. Regards, Blades

    Crankbait lips

    Contact Joey at Blademaster Lures. He owns Suddeth and still makes the "Little Earl" Crankbait (which that is what your bait is isn't it?) He may sell you a few. I reworked his masters and molds not long ago and was at his shop the other day he has a load of Little Earl Lips. Regards, John Prior
