Sinyo - looks great, I know you guys in Indonesia have been making these for a while now -- Do you paint the lips or just leave them white.

Also, I sincerely hope you, your family and friends have been spared all the tragedies in Indonesia lately, our thoughts are with all of you.pete

I have a couple of Sinyo's lures and the pipe works fine. It has just the right curvature and looks right.

Because the pipe is opaque, it has to be painted. I don't know how it would cope with a rocky enviroment, but that is generally not the problem over here. PVC will not snap, but would probably take on a few dents, which can be easily cleaned off if they bothered you.

A cheap, simple solution using readily available material and easy to work, with hand tools.

@hazmail : thx for the commiseration..

back to topic : in some lure I leave them white...some I paint it in red for imitate bloody mouth..it depends on overall paint of my lure.

@Vman : yes I always thinking about it too..can it survived in rocky environmental ?

but I never got a chance to answer that question because I never fishing on those environmental...because majority pond in Jakarta has muddy bottom..

maybe someone out there can test it n give their judgment in this thread....

Ernest,

First let me add my hopes that you and your family have been spared, and to say my family and I are thinking of those of you in Indonesia, and Samoa, who haven't been so fortunate.

Second, a lure question.

How in the world to you cut a slot for a curved lip?

I know it sounds simple, but I can't figure it out.

My solution would be to cut a slot wide enough to fit the curved lip into, and then fill the voids with epoxy.

But I'm hoping you have an elegant solution, like a piece of bandsaw or hacksaw blade clamped in a handle or holder of some kind so that it has the proper curve. I haven't gotten it right yet.

@mark : thank you very much..me n my family all safe..but I lost contact to some my high school friends:(

back to topic:

unfortunately your solution is my solution too LOL

but in some bait I sand back part of lip so it's little bit flat so they can fit in smaller slot

Just brainstorming here, I think the easiest way for attacahing a curved lip (without cutting a big slot and filling the voids with epoxy) isn't to cut a curve in the lure, but make the back end of the lip straight.

How you go about that, well I suppose that is tricky with pvc pipe but as sinyo said, you can sand away some of the back portion to make it so you don't need AS BIG a void that needs filling.

If you heat PVC pipe with a heat gun you can clamp it in a vice or something and it will cool flat and rigid, just heat one end and you can still have the curved lip!! - I'm always flattening PVC out to make 'no rust' brackets for your boat etc etc, it's very strong and workable. If you want to make a large flat sheet just split the pipe, heat it up and roughly flatten it , place it between 2 pieces of ply, heat again and weight it for a minute and you can have a 1' square perfectly flat sheet to play with.pete

@ sinyo

Thanks for your mini tutorial , could get very useful to me some day:yes::worship: !

@ mark poulson

I have made lures with Finnish style "saddle" lips , these don't have a plane base to glue into a slot as well .

What I actually did is cut a regular narrow lip slot under desired angle as usual and utilized my "Dremel" with a small 2 mm router bit to extend the lipslot's upper(forward) portions to accommodate the cupping of the lip .

This way one can fit in the lip in quite firmly ,...... the epoxy glue will later fill up the gaps at the bottom side of the lip .
