Lure Turner

7 posts in this topic

Hello everyone just wanted to share an idea I am now using. After searching for a cheap lure turner, I finally have one.

I took an old microwave with a working turntable and converted it to a lure turner . Very easy and cheap. It also makes a

nice dust free environment for the lures to dry in. Plus it has a built in timer. Just disconnected everything except timer and

turntable. Lay it on it's side and install something to attach lures.

Caution microwaves have a very large capacitor high voltage

known to kill. Be careful!!!

This one was over 1200v and the size of a small army canteen. Exaggarting a bit on size but

I would not want to be the dummy load on the other end of it.

Here is a pic of turner. I am going to add a round piece of wood with holes in it where the platter normally goes.

One can then place several dow rods with lures on them in the holes holes.

Thats kind of funny every one else takes them apart and only takes the motor. Build a control panel. Then builds a box. Then puts a light in there to heat it. You just take a microwave cut two wires shove a stick in it and start working. I love it, your a genus! The only thing I think I would add is extending the wires for the light and putting a hotter light in there to help the curing. Thanks

Sound Advice Kelly. Only reason I disconnected my light was because it attracted insects. Often I work at night in an exterior gargage with door open. Maybe this winter when I move things indoors I will turn the light back on.

After looking for cheap lure turner motors on ebay that met my specs, I realized a microwave would be great. I started my search for a free broken one with a good turntable. As luck would have it in two days time I had my free microwave from work. It took longer to get the approval to take home than to convert. I think in about 30minutes I was turning lures. Hardest part was finding center on top of box for the upper shaft( bolt). I see them all the time going out with the trash. That is alot of good turners going to waste.

Just my 2 cents, I found a rotisserie on craigslist pretty easily. I just plug it in and fashioned some dowels to stick on the spikes that hold the meat on.
