    Well I got it done and it was a big failure. I built the frame that the grinder sits on out of aluminum angle. So it has flex in it and every time the tracer goes down the end with the grinder on it flexes and it cuts deep into the wood. I guess I have to get steel angle and start over

    What RPM motor are you using to turn the master?

    Interested in this one. Price?

    My issue with this is that I carved a bait and got it completely built and the action is great and it does exactly what I want it to do. I am not sure if I can carve anothe blank and get it right. This one was kind of an accident.

    I am waiting on one last drive motor to arrive and my machine will be ready to try out. How do you guys make the master you are duplicating? Do you make a mold of the part you want to duplicate and then pour a master out of resin or something?

    Thank you for the response. I am still building it and when it is complete I will post pictures and get opinions of the finished product. I am no engineer, I am just trying to figure out a way to make a few baits that is easier than carving and sanding it all by hand.
  7. I am in the process of building a lure duplicator and I was wondering if you guys could give me some suggestions on what type of blade or cutter to use to get the best finish. Any help would be appreciated. I will be using a side grinder for the duplicator motor.

    Next tool

    I have truly enjoyed all the comments on my posts so far on this site. Lots of great help and information. I am just getting into the hand carving balsa baits world and I have a band saw. My questions is what would be your next purchase as far as tools go for building lures. What would help my process and make it easier.
  9. Guys I am just curious of some of your setups for getting the same wood lures consistently the same. I want to produce multiple lures at the same time and am curious about how you guys do it. Currently I am cutting a few blanks out with a band saw and then using a regular drill to drill holes for hook hangers and belly weights. Then sanding each lure by hand with sand paper. I am planning on getting a small drill press soon and trying to make my mind up on a sander of some kind. Sanding each lure by hand is a pain. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    What type of concrete sealer do you use to seal before painting?
  11. I am wanting to pour a bait with one color tail and another color body. How do you guys do this? I would rather use a 2 part mold instead of open pour. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  12. Thanks for the reply guys but I ended up burning that motor up. I just wired it and plugged it in the wall. Worked for a minute. I bought a different style motor off eBay since that was 120v 3rpm and built a temporary drying wheel out of some scrap wood. Works great. I'm really getting into this carving baits and if I can just figure out how to get the lip slot straight every time and make the bait run right I will be on a roll.
  13. I got a turn table motor out of a microwave and I want to build a lure drying station. How do I wire this motor.
  14. What do you use to get the small specks or dots of black on the bait?
  15. Can you guys post some links to where I can get epoxy from to coat my finished lures. I am having trouble finding what I need. I have used gorilla glue 5 minute epoxy and it seems to work fine. I just wonder if I should be using something else and where could I get it.
