Plastic Cranks

6 posts in this topic

I am wooden crankbait builder who is very interested in attempting to build plastic cranks as well. I remember quite some time ago a tutorial on plastic crank mold building being available but I cant seem to find it anywhere.I have very limited experience in this area but am very curious about it.

Thank you in advance.

Hoosier, I am not sure the knowledge data is back up yet. I am still having to learn this new format but the (tut) you are looking for is in ther.

I believe it was put there by Artbrush(shawn)

Maybe someone else like Tally can direct you.

I just read through your tut Shawn and that is wonderfully done. You cover everything needed for a begginer like me to get it right the first time. Thank you for your knowledge and helping us beginners avoid some mistakes I would probably make.

Gitzit,

There is one revision...

a more fool proof spru and vent system can be seen here. I refer to it as Vytautas's Twin Tail Ports.

The mold in my tutorial needs to be shaken nose down to release any airbubbles that get trapped under the lip notch when casting blanks. Vy's ports keep the lure nose down while casting thus releasing any air. That's the only revision I'd make to the tutorial. Thanx for the kind words.

Tight Lines,

Shawn
