  1. Tally, like you and many others I used to be on here a lot. Used to custom build my lures from cedar and white pine boards, turn them on the lathe, cut lexan for lips and custom paint. The old gentleman who taught me passed away years ago, with that and as you put it “burning out” a bit, I lost interest in it too. But as you noted, I’m getting the bug again. Hopefully I’ll be on here more too as I noticed it’s been 9-10 years since my last post. Nice to see a couple familiar names. Scott

    My first lure

    Nice looking job on that there plug, congrats on it's ability to catch fish. Now the madness begins!!!!
  3. Where did you get the prop bearings? I've been looking for those to no avail. Do those sink or are they topwater? It looks great!! Scott
  4. Vinny, The website is Fish Decoys, Wooden Fish Spearing Decoy Lures by C.M. WIGGLE BAIT Co. Scott
  5. Whew!!! False alarm. I rebooted my computer tonight and low and behold everything is back to normal. Don't know what happened, but I'm a happy camper now. Can't say that the other morning tho.
  6. the most popular brand name of this product is called AZEK. Due to popular demand, they started making one side smooth and the other side textured (like ruff lumber). This is due to homebuilder demand for a ruff texture on trim boards (this product was invented for exterior usage on home building to make wood rot extinct) Be forwarned it comes in 18' lengths only, and most places will not cut it, and it is EXPENSIVE!!! Try a local lumber yard instead of the Big Box stores, they should have it, and may be more inclined to cut a piece for you. We sell it where I work, and we don't cut it very often, but do make an exception now and then Scott
  7. O.K. guys, I need HELP!!!! Looks like my computer crashed erasing all my bookmarks. I had several websites saved from info I got from you guys. I am needing two very badly. One had ordering info for the 2 part lure box, like the old time lure boxes. The other was a web site for fiber optic rods for making eyes for lures. Any help would be worth the price of a if we ever meet up. Thanks again in advance Scott
  8. I always clear over my eyes, I think it just helps to keep them on. I also put a decal of my logo on my baits and clear over that too. Scott
  9. I've got a 26,000 gallon test tank that works pretty good. Only thing is my wife gets kinda mad when I'm testing crankbaits and she's trying to swim. She gets pretty mad when I snag her bikini top:eek:

  11. Two very well done baits benton. If I may ask, what brand and color or colors of paint did you use to make that pink? Very nice work. Scott

    Jaraal, You never cease to amaze me with your work!
  13. Ace hardware sells it. I use polyurethane to coat my lures, 3 coats, so far never had a problem with it.
  14. You should just unscrew the needle nut at the end of the needle, push down on the button you use to shoot paint and ease it out. Try unscrewing the tip nuts also to see if they may be clogged with something. Usually a very easy process. Use acetone or lacquer thinner, they will not harm any parts, I use them all the time.
  15. Fantastic thread Birdman, thanks very much. Now I got something to do Saturday, it's supposed to rain, so can't go fishing!
