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.

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.

flat side baits are not on the lathe. we use bandsaws, routers after cutting.
