Trying to repaint a bunch of jointed shad raps.
Came up with the ideas to glue a bead in between the section to hold them stil during the painting.
That way they would just be like working with a solid crank.
Then I would just cut out the bead with a exacto.
Just not working that hot the crazy glue keeps letting go.
Any body holding them together to paint.
This is fast high volume get them all done in in a few air brush cleaning type work.
Any ideas????

why not use a spring to hold the bait stretched out., or make a holder with 2 alligater clips.

build a frame 10"x10" place screweyes on each side paralell to eachother attach springs from cheap pens open all springs so you can put the lureeye on it & it will stay put til your painting is done .just turn it over for other side
