  1. I’m trying to find a better option for sealing my weights in lure blanks. Right now I’m using plumbers putty and every now and then it’s cracking my epoxy topcoat. I believe it’s because of the hardness of putty and it’s pushing out on epoxy and cracking it when it gets warm out. Any suggestions?
  2. I have bill's number if you want to call him. Pm me if interested.
  3. I had to buy certain tails through bass pro due to other colors not sticking, however bass pro doesn't sell red tails. I really didn't want to add a coil, but it looks like that's my only option. Unless I want to start pouring my own but that's a whole other issue. I have enough on my plate now. I tried heating the cut end, acetone to clean and nothing seems to be working.
  4. I will look for it. Is there a brand name?
  5. I make musky gliders with a plastic tail. I had a request for a special color tail and when I received them they were coated in oil. I tried washing off with rubbing alcohol and dawn dishwasher soap to no avail. I need to glue them on to the back of the bait and I use pro soft bait glue with accelerator. Would not stick so I tried two different types of crazy glue and still didn't work. Any suggestions to clean them so they'll stick? Or if someone can pour me some 8 inch tails like these? Much appreciated!
  6. Put a square lip in. Those round lips are what's giving you the slow wobble with belly roll.
  7. I push mine out through the front when cleaning. Put it back in through the rear.
  8. Looks like a lee lures pelagic in whitefish. https://leelures.com/products/pelagic-10
  9. Yes a use a compass and scribe my centerline and an awl to mark my weight holes. I'm using a 1/2 forstner bit in 3/4 stock. I'm making musky lures so I have multiple ballast holes in each one. I'm sure my forstner bit is a bit dull as I've drilled hundreds of holes with it and my vise is probably not the best. I'm going to get another bit and see if that helps.
  10. Im having issues with getting my ballast holes drilled dead center. I'm using a vise and a drill press with Forster bits but it seems one or more will not be dead center. I'm using a micrometer to measure each one and it seems at least one will be off. Just wondering if anyone had any tricks to help.
  11. Watch what you mix this in. I had it eat through a plastic cup this morning and got it all over my garage floor. So far not impressed at all.
  12. I checked them this afternoon and could finally shut the turner off. Website says to let first coat fully dry before applying second coat. With etex I never let the first coat fully harden. What are you guys doing?
  13. I just tried it last night for the first time. 9 hours later and still tacky. It is on my lure turner in an unheated garage. I'm hoping it was the temperature that has them still tacky but am getting concerned. Last night low was in 50's. Want to add second coat(musky lures) but from what I read it says to wait until first coat is completely dry. Not sure what to do. Any ideas?
  14. Could you use drop shot weights and cut them to size?
  15. I work the night shift too and do all my building on my days off after 10pm. I'm usually downstairs until 1am or so. Don't do much during the work week other than some epoxying.
