  1. Excise Tax Questions

    Hughesy is correct if you just repaint it the lure is not subject to the FET tax........ now if you take a piece of wood and build a lure from scratch it is subject to a 10% fet tax.........as well as any component you produce like lips and bodies or weights wires all of that is subject as well..........I have been visited 3 times by Uncle Sam.........
  2. Ok guys I want to clear something up..........the big companys don't just screw a tailwire into soft wood.... there is a pilot hole drilled and filled with an epoxie paste........that soaks into the wood grain giving it a lot more strength than you can ever imagine........ I have never had a wire to pull out......
  3. Lexan Lip Cutter?

    That one is D2 Tool steel.......hardened to 60 on a Rockwell scale..........
  4. Lexan Lip Cutter?

    I made that one myself........I bought an end mill and a metal lathe so I could do everything....In House.......that one took a couple of dys working on it in spare time after work.........
  5. Lexan Lip Cutter?

    I see someone has been looking through my pics.............LMAO.........
  6. Tracy they will be available as well..........I have another way to do them as well........
  7. Guys my baits are still being made if anyone needs anything just shoot me a message on facebook......also just to let everyone know......I also build Flatshad baits now as well......Last summer when Sonny McFarland Retired he passed all of his equipment and templets to me.......I took some time off from building baits to build a larger shop to work in.......I am also kicking around the idea of selling lips ....belly weights and doing some custom flat bait Bodies as well.........Kind of a lure builders supply if you would say...Thanks Rob..."Jawjacker"..Cochran
  8. Scale Material Knicks Paint

    try this.....a lot of guys try to stretch the material to tight to get it to form to the bait......that is the wrong thing to do.....as when you try to remove it..... it simply smears or scratches the paint.....also try soaking the material in some sort of solvent to soften it up.....I shoot laq. paint so I clean my netting often and very rarely scratch a lure......

  10. Stanford Lures

    There are no set topcoats most of us use a MCU of some sort to coat our lures...... You just have to use what works best for your system
  11. Any homemade lure making machines?

    guys you can cut bodies on a cnc machine..........they will be 2 part bodies.......one will run around 3 grand for them and they do a gr8 job
  12. Crankbait Machine

    Socal is right..........Jawjackers machine........that's a j1 body being cut........
  13. What Is The Best Dipable Top Coat?

    Ok I am going to chime in on this....I don't post very often but I have built lures for 20 years and have been tought by the best builders in the country......if you are going to use MCU.....you will have to do large batches of baits to keep from loosing the topcoat.......it does have a long dry time but it will cure to the toughest finish you will get......I know someone will disagree with me but that is what I have found to be the best way to build baits and make them last......
  14. Stanford Lures

    Ok guys ......those are finish nails that the baits are on......they are cut one at a time on screw machine........built by sisson........and you can shoot the netting on them that close without overspray........been doing it for close to 20 years this way........a lot of the overspray you are seeing dissolves when you dip it in the topcoat.........Dieter and I use the same system........
  15. Diy Crainkbait Bills?

    I guess im as ready as I will get .....there is a couple thousand baits done.....but I am sure there will be someone that wants something I don't have.......LOL
