    Hi dan, I will be doing more of these at some point, if you're on Facebook send me a friend request - Peter Temple custom jerkbaits (scotland )
  2. Chuck, I think there's confusion across countries with the names and meanings of various solvents and laquers etc. Bin is alcohol based pigmented shellac. I use it -as opposed to airbrush primers because when doing a lot of large baits it gives a perfect white base coat/primer over scuffed, epoxy sealed wood lures. Because I shoot through a spray gun ,the bin can be used in much thicker consistency than possible with an airbrush /airbrush primer. One coat on an 8 inch lure takes about 10 seconds, 2 coats 30 minutes apart gives complete coverage. Let dry for 1-2 days depending on temperature e
  3. Ddl, I take it you are making muskie size lures ? The rattle cans are great if you don't intend making too many. If your making a fair few regularly then the spray gun is the way to go, you will need a different hose and fitting from your airbrush hose. I'm sure as big blue says, you'll get a suitable set up from harbour freight. We don't have harbour freight over here but I can have a look to find one similar to mine, this is basically a generic cheap gun, 1.4mm nozzle . Zinsser bin slightly thinned is still VERY thick compared with anything you could put through an airbrush. ..
  4. I use bin after sealing, as a white primer prior to paint. Use a cheap auto type spray gun, lays down very well. Dries flat. I find it very good for priming large lures very quickly. Had zero issues with water damage even when top coats are pierced, which they are regularly with pike. I've left a floating lure (which had caught lots of pike) attached to a bhouy underwater at mercy of waves etc. For 3 months as a test. No issues - cleaned the algae and dirt off and good to go......

  23. Living near the clyde, I go for 'clyde built' - drill holes,scuff and slow cure epoxy !
  24. Don't listen to woodieb8 dinger, your not doomed getting into making wood musky /pike lures. Its an easy and relaxing hobby ,and think of the thousands of pounds you could save. Nor does it require 70 hours a week, 40-50 hours per week is fine to start with for first year or two !
