Balsa Carving Machine?

6 posts in this topic

I would like to purchase a machine that carves balsa (or other wood) into crankbaits. If you check out on YOUTUBE the video entitled "Austin Outdoors: Makin' Crank Bait", they have a machine that carves automatically to the shape they want in 50 seconds!!! Can anyone tell me what that is???? Or any other you may know of? Thanks for you replies, and good luck bassin'!!!

There were TU discussions about it when the video originally came out. It is a custom made machine that would be pretty costly to reproduce commercially - I think $20K was mentioned? I also remember seeing it for sale at some point? Anyway, a couple of TUers know the owner/builder, who I believe produces On The Line crankbaits. Pretty neat piece of equipment! There have been other threads about reproduction machines for crankbaits but I don't know whether anyone is currently marketing one.

It was for sale on the old site in the classifieds for $13K I believe. Not sure where we can find that on this site. Some of it isn' working yet and I don't see a classified section yet. Anyway, there is a discussion just a few posts down about people making machines that do this.
