    It's weighted, really nice popping action.

    I like this one. If you don't mind my saying, the eye socket will come out much smoother if you drill a shallow hole with a forstner bit the size of the eye, then use a larger round ball burr to get a smooth socket. The only catch is that you need a drill press.

    Spun this one up to see if it would work. Got the idea from an e-book. Tested great.

    Envirotex lite 30 min epoxy mixing

    Interesting. I use these motors a lot. Thanks for the idea!

    Duck season

    Splitting the feather was the easy part! I'm not used to such small hooks. It's a lot harder to tie them than I thought.

    Glitter and Epoxy

    ddl, I was using it on bucktail jig heads. I think Nathan has an excellent suggestion for using it on lures. Mix it in some polycrylic and apply with a brush, then top coat.

    Lure eye placement

    This should take care of the lathe tools: https://www.harborfreight.com/wood-lathe-turning-tool-kit-8-pc-62674.html This is where I found my ball burrs: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006KVG8FO/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s02?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006KVFBJ8/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s02?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I paid $36 and $23 at the time, they are now $31 and $12. Looks like I'm ordering a spare set!

    Lure eye placement

    Hey Mr Stone, I remembered you saying you don't have a lathe, and I just received an email from Instructables on turning without a lathe. The method uses a band saw: http://www.instructables.com/id/Woodturning-With-a-Bandsaw/?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email There's also this from Izzy Swan on how to use a table saw as a lathe:

    Whopper Plopper knockoffs

    I watched a video the other day of a Whopper Plopper repaint. She uses the lures sold by River2Sea. She buys them in the "powder" color, the lures are already based out and just need a repaint.

    Glitter and Epoxy

    Nathan, I like that idea. More control and glitter is definitely not going to be a problem under two coats of epoxy.
