    Airbrushing clear coat

    2X what 21xdc said. I sprayed clear coat and never will again, dipping is better and safer. Make sure if you chose too, get a sealed motor and a good respirator. Just cleaning the gun is bad enough. Wayne

    underwater photography

    One more question, did you ever try a stiff wire leader to lure or camera. Wayne I will be placing a order soon.

    underwater photography

    Thanks mudbug I think it will work for me but does the vibration from the lure mess up the video. It doesn't look like it I will just have to get one, it will also look good in a pool. Thanks Again Wayne

    underwater photography

    Thanks Walking Dead I would really like to get a video of the lure in natural surroundings bouncing over some rocks plus whatever there is. I think I will go to a shallow area that might work. I do make some pool video's. That little underwater camera works great. If I get this done before the water hardens up here I will post it. If anyone has a gadget that works let us all know. Thanks Guys Wayne

    underwater photography

    Does anyone make any underwater shots of the lure bouncing the bottom. Other than scuba gear, I would like to come up with some kind of a rig in front of the lure to photograph. Wayne

    Jointed Muskie Crankbait

    Thru-wire or screws is the same to me just epoxy in the screws. I made some jointed with screws and had no problems. You can always put in the screws after painting and coating both half's. Wayne

    CAD programing for fishing lures

    Well that helps a lot. I thank both of you for your insight, I will start looking into it and see what the local tech school has to offer and probably find that I am way over my head, but thanks again. Wayne

    CAD programing for fishing lures

    First I know nothing about CAD. Second I would like to try my hand at it for designing lures. I make bass to musky but would like to try my hand at it and get a 3D printer. I am retired and time is of no importance. What can you suggest something for me. Make it easy too. Not the best at computers. Wayne

    Help with jointed glide bait

    I hope I am not on topic. I plan on making a sub surface jointed swim bait. Question is hinge type, fiber type, screw type or pin type. Flat maybe 6" to 8" one or two joints. Never made one yet but seems like a challenge. Any advice. Thanks Wayne
