Drying Wheel

15 posts in this topic

I thought that seen as its finished and the inspiration came from this site, I'd post a picture. The wood disks are 8" dia. The one nearest the motor is fixed while the other one slides and locks, I ground a flat on the axle to tighten a bolt onto to lock it. The motor is a glitter ball motor, 6rpm. The lures are held with springs and a piece of bent wire going from the belly to the axle. Its a bit rough and ready but it does the trick.

Tidy wheel, looks the business.

Have you tried without the belly wire or do you find that it is necessary?

Nice paint. What top coat are you using?

Good to see another Englishman here, must be half a dozen of us now.

Cheers Dave. The lures flip around if the hooks are not on. The springs and the hooks end up covered in epoxy, but a quck soak in thinners gets them brand new.

I use ex74 over createx auto air.

Hi Craig

Nice job and I know exactly what you mean re the lure 'Flip'. Maybe ok for small crankbaits but not for the jerks. Here is a little video of my luremaking shed come workshop showing the drying wheel I use. Just cick the image which is a link to the video on photobucket.

Very handy and creative work shown here!

PhilB, What kind of clamps are you using on your drying wheel?

Are they custom made or can you buy them online?

BTW, nice thermostatically controlled drying box you've built there B)

They are the heads from hand vises. They are supplied with a handle which unscrews off. The thread though is a weird Whitworth thread so I had to drill and tap them out to take a metric bolt. I cannot remember the actual company I got them from but originally found them on ebay doing a search for 'Pin vise' which then led me to the company selling online. I'm sure something similar would be available almost anywhere..

Thank you for the info

Whitworth threads? Hmm, must be British made? We have to deal with those threads now and then on Rolls Royce parts :blink:
