  1. First off, I wanted to say thanks to all who make this site amazing. So much knowledge here. I have a family member selling off some tools, and I wanted to get an idea of some tools that I should be on the lookout for. I already called dibs on his belt sander and band saw, but I was also wondering if I should scoop up his router. I see people are always hand carving and sanding to round out their crankbaits and other wood baits, but I was wondering if a router bit would make this an easier task. I never see vids of anyone doing it that way, and I was wondering if there's a parti
  2. Here are a couple of simple homemade tools that are working out well for me and may be of some help to you too. Photos were necessary for clarity. The first two pictures show a simple homemade screweye driver for use in your drill chuck. If you have any access to scrap pieces of stainless steel or steel tubing, the first picture shows a short length of SS tubing that will not fit over the screw eye. By using vise to squeeze the end oblong, it will easily fit the screw eye. The screw eye will not go too far into the tool either because it does not fit into the unflattened tubing. Howe
  3. After giving it a lot of thought I've decided to try my hand at making wooden lures. There are several good YouTube video's on the subject and some that show a few of the tools needed to make wooden lures. My question is, What basic tools are needed to produce wooden lures, and are there any tools specific to lure making that I'll need? I'm primarily interested making my own in diving and vibrating baits. I appreciate any thoughts on the subject.
  4. Does anyone know where to get this mold to make crankbait belly weights with lead and wire? Or is there a video out there somewhere that shows directions on how to make one of these molds? I've tried making one out of RTV but the wire would not stay verticle in the mold when pouring in the lead. Any info on this would be great!.. I wish Do-it made this mold so I could just buy it and their wireform inserts for it..
  5. Here are a few tools that can be used too make Balsa/wood baits. Interesting enough some tools are used in the model aircraft industry. Tools like this can cut balsa to an accurate measurement and there is a planer if needed. http://www.nationalbalsa.com/product_p/bls.htm They also have blocks of wood. http://www.nationalbalsa.com/Balsa_blocks_s/216.htm Basically the model aircraft suppliers have things that can be used for hard Bait making.

    Drill Depth Stops

    My benchtop drill press does not have a drill depth stop. I was using tape wrapped around the drill bit to gauge drill depth. These clamp on aluminum collars are only a couple of dollars each. They are adjustable and will not damage the drill bit.
