Looks nice. It also looks like you have some adjustability with the wheels, also nice. I had a similar set up with that same motor but the noise drove me crazy. I ended up finding a rotisserie and hi-jacked the mechanics out of it. Works great and is whisper quiet. Looks like you have a fine collection of baits spinning on the wheel. Look forward to seeing the end product.

Yeah, noisy as hell but it works. I would interested in seeing what you did to quiet yours down.

The baits are a Balsa B2 nockoff (Been some talk in here about Balsa B's).

I'll take some pics and post them. I'm in the process of adding some bearings one the ends of the main spindle to make things a little smoother. Right now it's metal on metal.

I think your design is brilliant. It's the same design I used. :lol:

I made my drying wheel the same way, and used a rotisserie motor, and it's quiet.

I posted a pic. in the gallery last year, I think.

My motor is 1 rpm, which is plenty fast for the Etex and Nu Lustre 55 top coats I use.

I made my wheels a little bigger, so I could coat 8 jointed swimbaits at once if I wanted.

I think that the two wheel design, with a positive attachment at each end of the lure, is a very secure method of mounting, and it gives me access to all sides of all the lures as I coat them.
