Showing results for tags 'lip slot'.
I am new to making wooden lures. I have gotten decent at shaping the baits. But every time I try to cut a lip slot I end up ruining the bait. I know a band saw is usually used to cut lip slots. But I was trying to find something that works but is cheaper, while I am still figuring out how to make baits.
Here is a jig you could use. Best with squared stock. but you can also use balsa wedges to hold rounded bait in place. The saw is a couple of hack saw blades glued together. Assemble the jig first, then cut the angle to depth with table saw blade set at the proper angle.
