A Little Spoonmaking Video

13 posts in this topic

Hi , folks ,

Had some time to spare this afternoon so I've tried to make a little video out of a couple of pictures , that I had taken some time ago whilst making a bunch of my "DinnerBell" spoons .

First time I ever did such , and apart from two sequences it turned out quite well with my old computer !

Only pity , that "YouTube" did not accept my original audio track , that I had transfered from a CD into my computer files , so I had to choose a licensed audio track from "YouTube" , .........quite annoying !

Anyway , hope , that you'd still enjoy watching , ....any criticism and comments welcome !

greetz , diemai :yay:

Hey Diemai. Great Vid. Nice metal working skills too. Looks like you pulled it off with no major problems. Nice work. Look forward to seeing more of your vids.

Nice video (Thanks for not slamming it with rap or heavy metal.)

Excellent spoon design. Very impressive.

Nice spoon! Can you hear the dinner bell making noise at all in the water? I am just curious how it makes it clap against the spoon.

Thanks a lot for your kind words , folks , ...........much appreciated :worship: !

Actually I've started out my luremaking carreer about 20 years ago with building metal lures , spoons and inline spinners alike , .......got to wooden hardbaits years later .

I work in the metal industry , thus having occasional access to industrial grade power tools , that make the shaping of the lure blanks much easier , though with a bigger effort and some elbow grease I could do it at home as well .

Only stainless steel is a very tough material to work with just with hand tools , .......and hobby power tools are most likely not powerful enough for the stuff , ........but it still does work , though requiring a lot of passion for the finished product to ignore sweat and blisters on the hands :lol::lol: .

Anyway , I have made another bath tub video this morning displaying the swimming action of my "DinnerBell" spoons .

The clicking sound emitted by them is difficult to be heard on video , ........guess , that it is a microfone issue , since standing at the bath tub it is much clearer to be heard !

Anyway , if you listen closely , at 1:06 to 1:16 of the video you can clearly identify that sound generated by the metal beads of the rear harness of these spoons .

Please check

Thanks again :worship: , .........greetz , Dieter :yay:

Ill add to the compliments. That thing looks awesome. Have you thought about production of that? it seems pretty novel and maybe you should get that protected. Just a thought.

Thanks a lot , folks , .........actually I've just made six new ones to replace the losses of last season , ........I had lost a few of my annealed steel and tarnished plain copper spoons , as these dark colors were hot in 2009's unusual clear water .

@ atrophius

I have thought about having the design protected , as it is 100% my own , but there is this little imperfection of the "D"-limiter occassionally fouling with the hook !

To overcome this problem one would need a different metal part to lock the harness , and this would have to be factory made , as it is too tiny to be handmade .

The spoon seemingly can't be made in larger sizes ,......... I have made a few models in two larger sizes , but these would not swim as lively as this initial smallest version does , probably I should not have increased the sheet thickness and bead sizesas well , .......if lighter in weight these larger ones might probably still work well ?

Having a patent granted in Germany would cost a fee of several hundreds or even thousands of Euro's , I had heard somewhere before , ....... which the authority in charge of patents gets from the patent appliers , ............I am thinking , I might as well bet the money on horses , ...........and I never was a gambler to litter the money , that I sweat so much for at Monday thru Friday lateshifts !

I could go trying to contact one of the local big tackle companies to introduce the design to them , sometimes these take over designs of tackle tinkerers into line production ........but as said before , there is this problem about the "D"-limiter...... :huh: !

Apart from that , the local market for fishing tackle is not that large as in the US , ....not by far !

Thanks again , folks , ........greetz , Dieter :yay:
