  1. Went from Wood filler to Bondo to Baking Soda and Thin CA glue. The baking soda and CA glue is the best hands down. Just cant fill a deep hole in one shot. Dries instantly and like others said drys hard as a rock. Easy to file or sand smooth. Just be prepared for super glue fingers.

    Looks great. Love the wire holder. Thats a great idea.
  4. Got it. Thanks Working on a small glide bait now. This will prove helpful im sure.. Ok now for my first dumb question, How are you determining your wood density? I see you are using Body Material volume (L x W x H) X (0.265) How are you determining the Density value of 0.265? I see charts on the web listing wood density as cubic kg/m or lb/ft https://www.engineeringtoolbox.com/wood-density-d_40.html
  5. I would love to try this out and provide feedback. Thank you for sharing this. I make allot of one off baits and this could prove very helpful with the design and speed up my tank testing. Currently i fill the baits with more lead than i need and drill out. Float test. Drill Out Float test...... repeat........ Until i get the result i want. Thus the baits tend to have the weight higher up in the belly and require more filler. mmanolis2001@gmail.com Thanks

    SF true smelt

    Is that foiled or all paint with texture from the mold? Those look incredible. Love your stuff.
