Lure Rotisserie

3 posts in this topic

Hey crew-

I would like to post my new lure turner. I have got a lot of very useful information from the site, and it would please me greatly to be able to contribute something of value!

I have had the motor for some while, but it was configured for single bait duty. I am hoping to go into small scale production to supplement my meager income as a student, thus multiple bait capacity (in this instance six) is in order, for what I would assume are obvious reasons. wink.gif

Detail of drive shaft linkage. There is a nail that has been cut off and pinned in place with a rare Earth (neodymium) magnet that secures the original rotisserie Bar-B-Que drive shaft to the drying wheel. I slotted the original drive shaft and drilled a hole perpendicular to the slot to accommodate the nail, which serves the purpose as a cotter pin.

This is where the line tie of the bait will connect with the wheel. I like this feature, and think it may be unique. The line tie sits inside the slit cut into the end of a door-stop. I cut off the door stop to length, and slotted it with the Dremel tool. A nail and magnet will secure it as with the drive shaft. I like this feature, as it allows a very rigid coupling of bait to wheel.

This is a very simple, but very useful feature. It allows the device to function with multiple lengths and weights of baits by facilitating lateral movement of the right hand wheel on it's drive shaft. By adjusting tension on the set screw in the threaded insert, greater or lesser length between the individual

wheels may be achieved. This is handy for going from a batch of seven inch baits to a batch of ten inch baits, and so forth.

I am confident that you crafty people will find way of improving on this design. I am pleased with the results of my plans, and am gratified to report that the construction of

this device was 100% without error or mishap. This is cause for celebration in my ham-fisted universe!laugh.gif

Cheers!

I compliment you on your wood and metal working skills, job well done. I have the same turner laying in the basement that has been waiting to be made into a turner. This will motivate me to do something along this same line. I don't recognize the "bolts" that are used on the left piece of plywood. The ones slotted to accept the lure end, opposite the spring. Thanks for posting. Musky Glenn

Those are door stops, the sort that screw into baseboards to prevent the doorknob from contacting the wall. I got them from Ace Hardware. They were a dull brass color and rather uneven in places. I cut the knob off the end and chucked up the bottom piece in my drillpress. I reshaped the piece slightly and cleaned them up a bit before I put them on the board.

The end piece that sets in the bearing and the male drive link are also door stops. They were critical to my interpretation of the mechanism.

Thanks for the nice words... I am a hack, but I am getting better. laugh.gif

Cheers!
