    New to lure making, creating plastic molds.

    tell us, but start with 1 type of what you want to build. theres a million variables..if you want to pour your own thru molding try makealure as stated. you need a mold,then the correct resin,plastic,urethane foam. my advice read till your eyes bleed.then adventure into it.

    Crank Bill/Lips Lexan

    are you sure you used lexan? . we have never had this issue for over 4 decades.. im puzzled.
  3. the post above is sooo true. weighting can kill a lures action...a brief thought for myself would be to go to a smooth-on rigid foam in their 26lb urethane foam..you could adjust weight or more buoyancy with micro-balloons. .

    Lexan Diving Lip

    we build wih 1/8 lexan for lakes without rock areas. some guys use 3/16ths ..lexan is very strong on its own..remember to scuff the lexan lip before epoxing it in. it gives a stronger bond.

    Removing Masking Tape from Finished Lures

    we use green frog tape. there will always be a small paint parting line. that's how we do re-paints etc. on what we build lips are installed after clear coats.

    Painting bucktails

    rustoleum 2x white primer works well. .most guys are using a powder paint. we still use actual paints,we use stencils and spray. auto clear finish coat.

    Painting bucktails

    if your doing the blades you will need an acid etch primer..standard paints will not hold up without it. .you will need a blower system and respirator..this holds up on plated blades.

    Any "REAL" custom crank bait makers left?

    we still build customs for clients to order. to pay bills we have to do production..while we don't build smaller lures,mainly musky/pike baits.yes up here on the great lakes,it is a dying art..society wants everything yesterday.

    Top coat question

    hi first off. did you seal the wooden body?.. bubbles are normally moisture of to much heat applied to make paints dry.
