I'm not sure I can properly explain how this was made but here goes anyways
It's a motor off of an old chicken roaster, it runs almost exactly at 6 rpm and holds 12 lures, 6 on one side and 6 on the other, in total and are of 4 inch lenghts
The lures are held in place using a compression fit.
The screws are held by using inserts and a nylon nut on the end
Not sure what else to say so bring on the questions.

Wow that looks awesome! Nice Ingenuity on the Holders.

That's very nice design. I notice the bolts with nylock nuts on the side that tightens down on the crank bait to keep in place... Does the other side use only the wooden frame to hold the wire/hook in place? Any chance that that area may require additional reenforcement to prevent too much ware?

What tha heck!!!!!!!!!!!!! Man that thing looks like Frankenturner with all those bolts.Now that I studied the pics,I get it .Very good job.New twist on how to hold the lures.More and more every day I feel too simple minded to be a member here.....Really good job man.

I have small holes to keep the lure from moving around, look closely at the last picture, I think you'll see what I mean. So far this has worked very well. There's no need to reef on the bolt so there's very little stress on the wood.
The bolts are there because the unit needs to be expandable to hold 6 inch lures that I am developing, thus remove 4 bolts and I get to start all over again.
