Best Filler To Use

28 posts in this topic

My method is similar to yours, I collect the sawdust powder from my band saw, then pack it in around the weight hole and smooth it to match the belly contour then drop a couple of drops of thin CA on it and it is done. I am not a seller so if it is just a little rough, I don't mind. I have sanded it smooth but it is very hard, almost like trying to sand steel.

When I remove ballast from a lure because it's too heavy, or it's in the wrong place, I pack the hole with a piece of paper towel, push it in just past flush, add a drop of two of thin CA, and then bondo over that, to have something to shape and paint.

Great idea Mark, I will be giving that one a try. Thanks
