I'm not very happy with the wood filler I have been using. The only way it works is if I wait a full 24 hours and then it still has some soft spots in it. I have also been using epoxy putty which works great but I am concerned that in some cases it may change the balance on some of my glider baits. I would like a product that dries hard, fast, and has little weight to it....is there such a thing?

I use something called Ronseal wood filler it's fast drying( a few minutes )and weighs less than a butterflies wing.Thats here in England I don't know if you can get it there,but it's hard to believe there wont be some kind of equivalent stuff.

You might try autobody filler, I have used it on vintage wood lures with no loss in action. In addition, they make 2-part spot putty that works well also.

Try this, very light, extremely hard and ready to sand
in seconds. Put a drop of super glue in your hole, add
a little baking soda and start sanding. Donot use on
balsa. You will sand the balsa away and leave a hard

I have used for wood filler an Epoxy like product. It is tuff as nails and its called Loc-Tite. Its a two part A & B and needs to be mixed like the Epoxy. I bought it at the local Sears hardware. It dries pretty quick and it is as I said, super hard! Cody

Hey some great ideas, thank you! I find on my gliders to get the completely horizontal balance I want it will sometimes be the difference in just a few specks of lead added or taken out. This is why I am concerned about dropping in several large chunks of epoxy putty. Thanks again.

Try Epoxy Plummers Putty. Cures in 5 Minutes and is stronger than the wood you're using it on.
