Another Lure Design With Shifting Internal Weights

32 posts in this topic

Hi , folks ,

Just made a little video tonite displaying my latest lure construction , still in a blank condition , though , ...... probably one or the other fellow carver in here could take advantage or gain some input from my work !

Constantly carving and turning new blanks these days , wonder when I'd ever get to feel like finally painting them :huh::D !

greetz , diemai :yay:

Great video my friend. I'm always amazed at how much thought you put into your lures. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you for sharing this great idea and taking the time to video it. Really answers many questions. I will be using it.

I can never really cast far enough when chasing breakers or fishing from the bank.

Interesting design. I liked the tip about using the straw to keep the weights from getting glued together.

Thanks so much for your interest in my work and your kind words , fellas :worship: , ......I appreciate it verry much !

On Friday at work I've had another idea on how to furnish sucha plug with shifting internal weights and instantly put it to practise Saturday afternoon , ........here is the outcome :

To me it seems that this one here is a tad easier to furnish , as drilling centered holes and turning down closure plugs is easier than furnishing a reasonably accurate deep groove and a matching closure piece .

Really looking forward to the first bathtub swim test of these pike plugs , ...........if successful , I'd surely do some other variations , ...only lack enough time for painting all of my blanks :huh::lol: !

I can see you cut a lot of hand work out of the process. I look forward to the pictures of the pike you catch on it. :yay::worship::worship::worship:

The passion he has for the hobby definitely shows in his vids. Would he be the resident TU Plug Engineer? :)

You are much too "humble"....which is not necessarily a bad thing. :rolleyes:

Looks like you really nailed it Dieter. Especially on the second bait. I've been building some longer minnow type lures lately and will have to give your shifting weight method a try. Thanks for sharing your work. You make things a lot easier for many of us.

Glad to see they work.

The less active swimming action should be good as a twitch bait for cold water, and the other for warmer water, when the fish are more active.

The weight shifting systems look like they are a success.

Congratulations.

Thanks again , friends :worship: , ........now I'm honing on an easier working process , .........just in brief , .......turning down the closure plugs first and putting the center bore thru an untouched piece of broomstick , .........putting in the lead balls and after glue in the closure plugs on eiter end , ........after curing I'd chuck the whole thing into the lathe again to durn down the lure's shape .

This way all turns out accurately aligned , ....made a test blank yesterday , ....I was first concerned , that the leadballs might get damaged inside of the bore whilst the lathe is turning for a couple of minutes , ....but they still rolled back and forth properly afterwards .

Gonna turn out some more pieces for display and put out a video on it during the coming days .

greetz , Dieter :yay:
