Bulk lure drying wheel

4 posts in this topic

Just wanted to give back to what I think is the best message board I have even seen. I have learned a lot from some very talented people on this board and hopefully this will help some of you.

I needed a solution for drying large amounts of jigs/spinnerbaits and concocted this drier using a rotisserie motor similar to what others have mentioned for hard baits. I stole the motor from my own grill so don't tell my wife. I mounted the supports on a wooden frame, hacked 6" off of each end of the rod and inserted into either end of a wooden dowel. I then wrapped the dowel in closed cell pipe insulation attached by tie wraps, which make replacing the insulation a breeze when it gets torn up.

It does a great job of avoiding sagging in the topcoat even with the slow rpms. I have had as many as 90 jigs at a time on this baby. I have attached a few pics to illustrate my babble. Thanks to all of you who have helped me so much....Vince

And I thought fishing was an addiction...it started with me 20 yrs ago when I spun my first diamond wrap on a rod blank, then building spinnerbaits/jigs, now plastics and molds. My wife is asking when the bass pond is going to be built in our back yard..followed by NOT!
