  1. Well forget it the flash will stick together so not a good idea. Well we live and learn! Wayne
  2. I guess so will I also. Wayne
  3. Can flashabo be painted or dyed. If so with what? Wayne
  4. If you are going to carve for making a mold to reproduce a lure then I would go with Basswood, if you are carving to use as a fishing lure I would go with Cedar. Wayne
  5. Are you looking at 4" or 3" Wayne
  6. Well when I use up my KBS I will get a small amount of DN's or what ever and give it a try, by the time I use this up (KBS) there will be enough answers answered! Wayne
  7. Mark No what I was saying that I would let the poly settle and just pour the poly into another container, while I flush out the whatever settles in the bottom of the pint can and wash that out so I have a clean container to pour the poly back into. Do not stir the poly up just let it settle. Then I could use what was needed to mix my glow powder into a plastic cup and it was ready to spray. When you first open do not mix pour it out then wash out the pint can then you have a clean can, the poly works as a medium for mixing.I have not mixed anywith Createx but will try that out. Wayne
  8. One thing that I found out that not stirring the poly helped me in using it as a medium for glow paint. I just bought a pint and poured it into another container and washed out what was left in the bottom of the can. You might have to do it several times to get all of it out. I never mixed Createx with it, but it worked with the glow powder. Wayne
  9. I think I will just stay locally and through a web site. I am to old to fight any competition so I will just keep making what I make Musky, Northern or Bass I just like making them. But I will change most of my turning a lure in the summer and paint in the winter with a cap on how many to make and sell. Then enough is all I will make, and fishing them and selling at flea markets, which I enjoy telling new builders how to make their lure ideas come to fact. Like they say a patent is cheap but defending it is where you need more lawyers than they have,$$$$$ Wayne
  10. Depends on what you want to do with your carvings. If you want to look at them I would go with basswood, if you want to make a lure for reproducing with a mold then basswood or maple, if you want to make them too fish with I like white cedar which is good for all depths with proper weight maple is also good for deeper depths. Then there is the size of the lure you want too carve small lures balsa is what you should be carving. I am not a carver but use the tools that I have band saws, wood lathes, and sanders plus hand work. I make my musky lures out of white cedar then go to silicon mold then white resin making of the lures. Vanbass welcome to a bunch of good and help full guys. Wayne
  11. I use a Exacto knife also but if you take a set of tweezers and grind the edge to your liking I think that will work for you. Don't think to much just do it. Wayne
  12. I like to do my painting and pouring in the winter months and turning wood in the summer. I poured some resin in a very humid basement and it blew out and resin was breakable up in hand, winter is best for me. The White does not seem effected as much as the other resins. Wayne
  13. Disc Cutter Set 7 Sizes 1/4"- 5/8" Cut Circular Metal Discs Round Jewelry Shapes 53926784165 | eBay I bought one of these, looks like I can make different size rattles. Wayne
  14. Thanks sounds good to me I have tubing and some SS balls don't laugh. Wayne
  15. Anyone know how to make large rattle chamber for musky baits Wayne
