Anyone know where I can buy some lexan sheets?

Also, does anyone sell belly weights that are already cast. I have seen the excellent tutorial here on making them. Also, I have used some small, 1/8 oz barrel weight for smaller baits that seem to work OK. But wondering if there is something out there especially for lure making.

Here you go:

Type in lexan or polycarbonate in the search box at the left side of the page and away you go. Everything from cheap to $$$$. also have a link to a robot combat site that used to sell it, but has their polycarb page shut down (???).

Try your neighborhood glass shop. Flat glass, not auto. You can compare their prices to the online places.

You may get lucky and be able to buy cut offs for cheap.

Is the .063 inch thickness what I want for lips?

As for the weights, I notice those at NJ Tackle are 0.15 oz., which would be less than a quarter ounce. Believe some plug makers on here have recommended a quarter ounce on larger, Poes-sized lures.

1/16th inch.063(.060) is fine for bass lures....if you are building musky you may want to go a little thicker....see riverman for details not sure. He builds alot of musky baits (gliders)...
