Finding Tuf Board

11 posts in this topic

I have been trying to locate PVC board for making swimbaits. My local Home Depot seems to think they have discontinued it. Any ideas?

Go to a "real' lumber yard, home depot has a lot, but they aren't very specific on what it is. and most of the help, at least at my store doesn't know what really is what. I have had them tell me things are discontinued, then walk 2 isles over and find a brand new pallet ready to be stocked.

What is PVC?

cellular vinyl pvc. google it to get more info. it's all i use for baits. easy to carve, sand. no grain to deal with, waterproof so it won'f absorb water. consistant mass and very bouyant. go to a building supply place ( i get mine at Lowe's ) and ask about pvc exterior millwork.

Can you turn that stuff on a lathe?

You can use a lathe but you have to use sand paper or a belt sander to shape it cutters and gouges dont work that good

Finally found some, out of the 9 lumber yards where I live, the last one I called had some. Stuff is hard to find!

My local Home Depot does not have it but, my local Lowe's store does have it. That's where I buy mine. You have to go to the lumber section where they sell exterior trim. It comes in 4" & 6" widths X 8' long. Just be sure to buy the kind with 2 smooth sides. Some of it has 1 smooth side and one side like rough cedar. My Lowe's has both. You just need to look. Many of the store employee's just don't know.
