  1. Twitchbait what am I doing wrong

    Put a square lip in. Those round lips are what's giving you the slow wobble with belly roll.
  2. Airbrush needle removal

    I push mine out through the front when cleaning. Put it back in through the rear.
  3. Holographic fish scales

    Looks like a lee lures pelagic in whitefish.
  4. Centering Ballast Holes

    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.
  5. Centering Ballast Holes

    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.
  6. Possible New Clear Coat

    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.
  7. Possible New Clear Coat

    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?
  8. Possible New Clear Coat

    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?
  9. Looking For Small Belly Weights

    Could you use drop shot weights and cut them to size?
  10. What Better Time To Work On Cranks?

    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.
  11. Making Eyes

    Here is what I do. I use e-tex that is left over and pour it into my empty contact lens containers. I wear disposable contacts and keep them all. I usually make 6-10 at a time. Here is what they look like when I put them on lures.
