  1. Larry announced on a recent show that he and the www.makelure.com site were running a lure making contest with the winner getting a chance to have their creation manufactured. Sounds cool. More details at http://makelure.com/BuildOff.cfm.
  2. redg8r, much thanks for all the upgrades you have done to the site. This has obviously been a challenging transition, but the site looks better everytime I log in.
  3. I'll vote with a thumbs up. Some posts are still overwriting the ads on the right side but it's getting better. May just be my resolution as I'm using a square LCD panel rather than the newer wide screens.
  4. Bill was one of the last shows that hadn't turned unto a 30 minute infomercial for their sponsors. But even he is moving in that direction.
  5. Hang on until January. Most of the fishing shows will start new seasons then. In the meantime, you can get your 'fix' via MyOutdoorTV.com.
  6. I pondered building one too, but I watched the sales at Harbor Freight Tools and picked up a full size lathe. It has an all steel frame, a good sized motor and will handle stock to 40". For around $80 shipped I figured I'd have nearly that much in a homemade lathe by the time I got a comparable motor and the other parts needed. http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=38515
  7. I found a 12 pack of combs at the local $1 store. It had several different sizes and spacing. The $ store is a great place to get small clamps, etc.
  8. Has anyone tried to turn the brick molding size on a lathe? Seems it would make a good turned topwater bait.
  9. This type of violence has become all too common. Our prayers go out to you daughter and your family. Stick with her and help her heal. Thankfully the child wasn't injured. God Bless.
  10. Back in my Navy aircraft mechanic days we called those Safety Wire pliers. We used them to twist safety wire to secure engine bolts from loosening.
  11. I used some of the Rustoleum Hammered plastic paint to repaint the plastic fenders on my trailer and used the metal version on the bolts. It's a good looking finish and matched the galvanized trailer nicely. I'm not sure either used alone would be durable enough to use for a lure finish. If an epoxy top coat would adhere to the hammer paint, you should get a cool looking lure.
  12. I have used both suppliers, and they have good products and great shipping and service. Gary
  13. I spent 18 years in the Navy Reserve. I was one of the last piston engine mechanics and I'm sure the military version of these pliers cost 100s of dollars, but these should do well for luremaking. Here are the links for the two sizes: - Harbor Freight Tools - Quality Tools at the Lowest Prices - Harbor Freight Tools - Quality Tools at the Lowest Prices Happy twisting. Gary
