Threw Wire

3 posts in this topic

this morning i shaped a lure it came out just like i wanted it to then I used a dremel an cut a groove along the bottom from tail and lip slot. Then I drilled two holes in the lip for the line tie, every thing looks good so far. I'm stumped on the lip on if i should expoxy the lip in the bait or should I wait an try to expoxy after i have completely finished the assembly. The wire going throught the lip i have it going back into the body. I'm thinking I could expoxy the lip in then when I put the wire through the 2 holes in the lip i could just wrap instead of going back into the body. Looking for some ideas here thanks guys

hi. you can epoxy the lip in. for our wire thru we also pin the lip from underneath. that will remove any doubts.

I'm just working on some as well(just two out of 1 1/2 dozen pictured) , .......I ALWAYS start to lead the wire through the lip bending the line tie , then I'd procceed bending the ENTIRE wire form to shape and glue the lip and wire form in together , as they are now connected .

With a dry assembly I can even determine about the ballast now , at least when using PVC as lure material , ....... not wood .

I would find it too complicated leading the wire through a fixed lip and still even do the wire harness afterwards .

good luck , diemai :yay:
