  1. I'm trying to make some lures with my lathe. The lures have a fixed bill also turned. The problem is that theywill not walk straight even not after tuning the screweyes The wobble is almost null
  2. This lure was turned on the wood lathe. The stripe down the side is inlaid maple. The spot is inlaid cedar. Hooks, hardward and bill are all brass. Eyes are brass brads with painted spot. 5" long.
  3. I recently purchased a workbench wood lathe from harbor freight and so far its been treating me pretty well. I've been researching turning plugs for quite sometime now, and today I finally turned my first two lures. The top lure was supposed to imitate a Hula Popper, and the bottom is going to be a pencil popper. The Hula Popper is made from basswood and the pencil popper is made from eastern red cedar. Any critiques would be greatly appreciated. Also if anyone could provide some info on how to cut the angle for the pencil popper mouth I'd also appreciate that. Thanks in advance!
  4. Looking to purchase a light weight lathe that I can pack in my luggage but will still be capable of making normal size topwater baits. Was thinking about purchasing this one, but wanted to get a better opinion as I am new to all of this. Is this going to be too small for what I need? Thanks in advance. Tim
  5. I want to begin making some more professional looking lures and would like to buy a lathe and an airbrush kit. I would like to spend less than $200. I already have a dremel 200 which allows me to make extremely custom and unique lures, but I would like a lathe to speed up the process. Here are the best values I have found on lathes-tell me if you know of any other values or are selling a lathe yourself. - http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_00922106000P?mv=rr - http://www.grizzly.com/products/H2669 - http://www.harborfreight.com/garage-shop/stationary-wood-lathes/8-inch-x-12-inch-bench-top-wood-lathe-95607.html - http://fortmyers.craigslist.org/col/tls/2816616599.html Lathe tools- - http://www.harborfreight.com/8-piece-wood-lathe-turning-tool-kit-3793.html Airbrushing supplies- - http://www.jannsnetcraft.com/createx-airbrush-paint/ - http://www.jannsnetcraft.com/paasche-airbrush-sets/460160.aspx - http://www.jannsnetcraft.com/fishing-lure-paint/023025000411.aspx Tell me what you think.
