  1. Duplicating Machine capable of two two baits at the same time in less than 50 seconds. Will run approx. 100 in an hour. Comes with enough cedar to cut over 3000 baits. Let me know asap, it won't last long!
  2. to run the machine you need a 110 outlet and a 220 outlet, no ventilation required but you will need a dust collector. It's free standing and measures 38x29 and stands 4 ft. tall. There's a demo on you tube. Search for Austin Outdoors.
  3. Send me your phone # and I will call you. I would like to come and take a look at it. Thanks, Mike

  4. The machine is a duplicator. It requires a mold of the bait you want cut , then it will cut the bait as it follows that mold. It has two sides so that you can cut two baits at a time or you can just run one side. It takes about 45 seconds to cut a bait out. There's no changing blades or retooling. All you have to do is change molds and make a few adjustments and your ready to cut.
  5. I,m selling it because I have a son that is 10 years old and I've been putting way too much time in making crankbaits insted of making memories with him. He's now at the age where he wants to do alot of things with me so I want to give him that time. I'll always be able to make baits but he's only young once.
  6. Crankbait machine seen on you tube video for sale. Included is enough cedar to make over 1000 baits. $13,000.00 firm.
  7. I have to cut the lip slots after the baits are cut. I use ,as someone on here mentioned, a primitive wooden jig to cut my lip slots. I had stainless ones milled but I chose to use the wooden ones I make because I can adjust them and they are much faster to use. It's much harder with a round bait but afer you cut several you get the hang of it. Every step I do has evolved greatly and is still evolving. I learned along time ago I never stop learning and by all means I am no where close to knowing everything. As for the second question the machine uses a circular saw blade to cut the baits. I'm a carpenter but I have no clue when it comes to machines. Most of the other working parts in the machine are foreign to me.
  8. I don't know what else to tell you guys about the machine. I bought it used and had to learn how to use it myself. It was home made just to make crankbaits. I do know there are others around. Some of the larger companies use them also. I've been told new ones sell for around Twenty Thousand. They are very rare. It took me over 10 years to find this one. As far as the clear coat, I use strictly lacquer and I dip all my base coats and clear. I use one special clear for a color lock before I dip 3 coats of clear lacquer. I'm not trying to be a jerk but I'm not willing to give the color lock up. I think it's the key to the finish. I can cut baits for you guys so you don't have to invest thousands of dollars on a machine. Believe me it's hard to recoupe that investment. If you need to ask me anything else, don't hesitate.
  9. I own the machine in the video. It's a homemade machine that I purchased used. I can cut baits out of balsa, cedar,basswood etc. If anyone is interested in unpainted bodies just let me know.
