Do a search for "duplicator". It will give you plenty of reading to get you started. You can also google "lure duplicators" and get even more info. Here's a link to get you started of a You Tube video that Jerry (redg8tr) made of the lure duplicator he built.

jwfflipper When you say your next purchase, is this type of wood duplicator available for the public to purchase? Or do specifically know the owner of this individual duplicator and going to purchase it from him?

I know the man personally and new ones are pretty darn expensive, not for your average builder unless you you have about $15,000 you can dropped

woodieb8 are you able to duplcate flatsided crankbaits with your lathe duplicator? The mass production is not my concern as is an accurate duplication just for personal use and a hobby.

Seems I remember that the duplicator like the one in the video was somewhere in the neighborhood of $10,000. If you can afford that kind of money just to build a few cranks for you and your friends then I need to talk to you about a long term, low interest loan. :teef:
