Dan, somehow I missed that one and using "solarfall" as a YouTube search term is like looking for a needle in a hay stack. Can you give us a link? Thanks!

Gret looking scales Dan!:) I'm gonna have to give that a shot!

-

A bit off topic, but on the 'lure painting tutorial part3' about painting fish eyes, look at about the 50 second-1 minute mark. That metal contraption with the clips on it to hold the baits is pretty nice. Not sure if that's mostly homemade, but could anyone point me in the direction to find something similar?

-

I'm not real happy with what I've got now to hold my baits. :(

Harbor Freight sells that contraption (lol) it as a soldering 3rd hand jig.

I thought I saw something like that there before, but searching their site; I'm coming up empty. :blink:

-

Would it be called anything else? (we have a Harbor Freight 10 minutes from my house, so that would be nice if they carried something like that)

They are called 'helping hands' http://www.maplin.co...x?moduleno=4017

Any local electronics components store will certainly stock them.

Yah, I googled 'em, and quite a few came up. Good call on the electronics store. I'll definitely be stopping by one! ;)

Back on topic! Thanks for posting this too Dan. I was wondering how to paint those cool scales I've seen around. :P

-

(And that's what they're listed under on Harbor Freights site too, just found 'em! ;) )

Those scales look as good as a pro. I haven't tried that style yet, but will soon. It looks kind of easy. Thanks for sharing.

I just wanted to see how it would work so I grabbed an old reject from the bin and I must admit it looks kinda cool!

-I agree, it looks very cool. I hope to give it a whirl this weekend myself. ;)

(also, for anyone wondering about the 'contraption' (or maybe it was just me), I picked one up at Harbor Freight for $3. Hopefully it'll get a workout this weekend.:D )
