  1. Just for reference on the drying subject, this is what I had happened on some 2.5's from several years ago. I sprayed the silver very heavy and hit it with the hair dryer, the surface paint dried but was still wet underneath apparently. It was dry enough the apply a stencil to the side of the bait and spray the stripes without messing up the silver base. After I dipped them in KBS they wrinkled as seen . I sprayed some other colorways at the same time that had less paint that didn't wrinkle. I make sure each layer is dry now and haven't had this issue since.
  2. Heat set each color(Layer) before the next unless you're applying very light coats. Paint will look dry until you clearcoat then you get an unpleasant surprise. I have a hair dryer next to the paint station, hit it with some hot air and you can see the paint turn opaque, ready for the next layer. I only intercoat over foil to protection the foil finish from future handling when adding paint colors. Hope this helps...
  3. It looks like one of these, I wouldn't know about the weighting of them though. https://www.lurepartsonline.com/Cup-Washers_2
  4. 6 Inch resin Wake and Crank, in Delta Craw, St-36 hooks, 2X stainless hardware, Lexan tail
  5. In tribute to EVH, thanks for all the great music, RIP
  6. Not a pro, I haven't used the JB stuff, have always used D2T. Devcon 2 ton epoxy, 30 minute not the 5 min. I also drill a couple small holes thru the lip where it slides into the bait so the epoxy can bond thru the lip from both sides, hope this helps
  7. I've used a number of different air compressors, California Air Tools are the best IMO. SUPER quiet and fast cycle times, you can spray in the same room and talk on the phone. I also have several Iwatas and would recomend them as well.
  8. I make resin baits. I bend the shaft of the eyescrew 90*, then place they eye in the appropriate slot in the bottom of the mold and pour the resin in. The resin sets around the eyescrew. The eye of the screw eye will fail before it would ever pull out out of the bait unless you hit it and crack the bait somehow. I've even done this with 3/4 inch .092 hardware, and they stay put. Not sure if this applies to what you are trying to accomplish.
  9. Cut the lip slot when you still have the square ends attached to the body, right after it comes of the lathe. I use a table saw. If you already have round bodies now, I would use BobP's method to orient your slot and use a bandsaw or a small hand saw to cut the lipslot.
  10. This stuff will work, but it takes some work. This stuff is covered with glitter that sheds on everything it touches. You really need to almost, roll it up or wad it up, rub it between your hands and smash it together to get all the glitter off so it's usuable without shedding. It's also only two inches wide so you are limited as to what baits it can be wrapped around and clipped underneath. Larger baits would have to be sandwiched between two pieces if trying to spray both sides at the same time. The darice comes in a 6 inch wide roll giving a little more flexibility for usea
  11. The answer is at your local fabric store or a Hobby lobby. There are numbers of materials that will give a similar effect. Try wired edge ribbon or Wonder Web. Used dryer sheets can be wrapped around a bait and shot thru. The silver stuff in the pic is what I use the most and can't remember the name of it, darine or darcine, something like that, maybe someone else knows the name. I suggest looking thru the fabric until you find something you think will work for you. I've found stuff at Wallyworld as well. Not a great pic but gives an example of a couple baits.
  12. It's one of three to be stripped, sanded and repainted this winter, all trout. Actually just sold the two on the left today...
  13. The red things on the assist line are something similar to shrink tubing that keeps the line snug in the groove. I've never had an issue with the line pulling out on mine. I even have a Negociator bottom hook that was converted to a top hook, homemade version and it holds well.
