Hi guys, need help on where to find metal lips for a couple reproductions im doing. The two plugs Im making recreations of are the Heddon Vamp and the Heddon Midget River Runt. Does anyone know if there are any suppliers out there that have vintage style lips? So far my searches have come up empty handed. Thanks for any help or suggestions.

You can try Janns Netcraft. They do have a variety of metal crankbait
lips, Not sure if that what your looking for or not.
Good luck. And dont forget to post some pics of that river runt.

Timely subject.How many lips do you need?
I have ordered the tooling and a batch
of lips that will fit the old heddon river runts.It should also work on digits,punkinseeds( except tinys)and 110 wood runts.
I do not know how much I will be asking for them yet.It is a very expensive undertaking.
If anyone wants to have thier name put on a waiting list to be notified when they arrive, email me.It looks like early January for a arrival date.
