Homemade Metal Lip Question

5 posts in this topic

How can I make my own metal diving lips? What material? Where to buy the material. I'm making a replica creek chub pikie lure, they have a sharp bend in the lip. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thankyou Smitty

Most of the Creek Chub Pikie lips had 2 sharp bends. Rollie&Helen's carry

a few stainless steel replicas I think. The old Pikies had brass lips I think. I bought some brass replicas years ago but have no idea from where. If you want to make a couple buy the proper gauge brass and with some cutting, grinding, drilling and bending you should be able to come up with what you are looking for.

No, and 22g.

Click on the link in the tutorial for the SS. They are the cheapest you'll find and the material is primo.
