Making your own pop r's/chuggers

5 posts in this topic

Can anyone tell me the best way to make the concave mouth on these pop r's? I can turn them on a lathe easy enough but that's giving me problems. I figured there has got to be one of you out there that has figured this out. Thanks guys!

Yeah I think like those. lol. My pc is a pos so it's a little hard to tell but if it's anything like the rebel pop r, yeah. There is a tutorial on here about that but I'm actually missing a quality drill press so I'm wondering if there is another way. :rolleyes:

Thanks

Get an attachment for your hand drill to make it work like a drill press

they run about $20

they work but not as good as a real press. pluss your limited as to how big a hole you can drill

Thanks. Also do you know if on these flat-sided cranks like Coley is making on the tutorials, do you sand (round off) the edges on those also so they look like a rapala? I think you make similar cranks also. I'm venturing into something new so I'm a little green.
