  4. Hi ben cheers for the comment. I must have misunderstood as I was trying to help the original posters question. ( I usually cut out the slots for my crankbait lips with a bandsaw, but it leaves gaps on each side of the lip. Does anyone have a solution to cutting out lips without making these gaps? ) cheers crankie

  6. Hi jonh if you look at the pic I put up you will see that by doing it this way it will be impossible for the lip to come out if it did move very unlikely you could epoxy it again never had a prob with lips l love them
  7. Hi Griffond I painted a trout parr using foam for dabbing and homemade templates. I then used the brush to create splatter techniques I used auto air paint maybe this is cheating but I still used the brush cheers crankie
