Just found it this and thought I would share it.

interesting vid. It's always neat to see how baits are mass produced. Crazy thing is, there wasn't a single guy among all those workers! Maybe they just wanted people to pay attention

I think so too. Seems I can find more videos if I just search using using foreign words for lure. I found this one using the word wobbler. There are three men by my count all working the more compiex machinery. But the women are certainly more interesting to watch. The blond early in the video is wearing her jewelry box by the look of it. I giggle every time I see her working with all those rings on. She definitly got the memo.

Some vids on lure production around , ...here is one showing parts of the making of the famous "Nils Master Invincible" at "Finlandia Uistin" in Finland ,.....appearing in the end of the video the two brothers Hannu and Kalevi Kangas , which founded the company during the 1960's .

The water is really moving in that river. Bet many lures lost there. Good for sales.

Here's another one from a Finnish private company, a little more detailed.

Very interesting , thanks for posting !
To me it looks like these wobblers do not have any lipslot , but get their lips glued straight onto the belly , ....they have a great swimming action , though !

I noticed the same thing before but I doubt it, he must be using some super super glue to hold it that tight, I guess it's just a very shallow precise slot. The action is very nice indeed, nice hunting action like most Finnish wobblers.

I really liked the punch for the lip quick, easy and precise.

They actually still tank test their lures. Like rapala used to(maybe they still do but my gut feeling says they dont) Remember back when rapalas were made in finland, and the lips on floaters and sinkers would have file marks from fine tuning? That is how i fine tune some of my cranks, by filing the lip. Thanks, nice vids.
