How Much Weight Would You Add To These Cranks?

4 posts in this topic

I'm trying to make a WEC Wobbler and E1 for my own use. I was trying to see how much weight to add to them. Or if you don't know the weight, how many percent under the water should the baits be sitting after everything is installed?

Thanks

The total weight of the WEC is something to think about. You may be using wood with a different density - balsa varies between 6 and 18 lbs/cu ft. If you have a specimen E-1, weigh it and work out the amount of ballast for your copy by subtracting you copy's component weights (raw wood blank, lip, hardware, estimated finish) from the specimen weight. That's why a digital scale is so useful.

Perhaps another TUer has an E-1 they could weigh for you?

Thad,

Start with a 1/8oz of ballast for the wobbler and 3/16 for the E1. I have not forgot about your wood, I will be mailing this sat. I did not have a box on hand.

No worries, to be honest I forgot about it. I need to paypal you. Thanks for the tips too, I'll try them out. You got an email too.
