  4. Thank you so much Bobp & Chuck for your prompt information. I got confused, all my lures are made from yellow pin, same design, bib angle (40 degree), through wiring, split rings & trebles an d weight almost same as 24/25 gms. I need not have to worry on the sitting position on the surface of water because almost all my lures sit nicely and 90 degree to the surface after i test them once curving is finished . Few sit head down as i have placed blast in the front of belly eye and these gives good action compared to those where i have not placed a single blast. The follow
  5. Hi, I have been looking around to find answers to some of my quries, i am into the addiction of timber lure making as hobby. Spend 9-10 hours on job and remaining hours on lure making and love wood carving. 1). does lure requires weight even whenit sit horizontal on the water surface and gives a good head to tail side to side action. Does it requires to sink down the lure slowly or fast either way to reach at the depth of getting the target species of fish. 2). i have seen in majority of lure making tutorials the weight is placed one at front and other at rarer of belly eye.
  6. I regret for very late replying, because i was going through another challenging task of saving my job here in Dubai. Thank you all for your feedback, infact there is saying "need is the mother of invention" so here we are. Commercially available scroll saw here in UAE are very expensive and cannot think of buying one for my hobby. Thaught better to do something at a very low cost, collected idea from various sources and started the project. It was challenging because i have zero knowledge of carpentory work, i finished few lure as follows:

    Top coat Help

    Hi guy's thanks for the suggestion, advise and probably cause of problem. What glider said was correct: - I did first coat of epoxy after putting foil and then applied color - 2nd it is also correct I put more color to hide the foil on the belly. (I used jacquard colors which comes is pre reduced form but are too thin to apply single coat unlike createx) - 3rdly I gave enough time for drying 24 hrs before applying ET . Do I need to apply epoxy to the affected part only after light sandling to save my hard work ( it's a pain to loose lure after so much hard work)

    Top coat Help

    Hi I am in the process of completing another 3 lures, while doing top coating with envirotex lite I came across following problems not able to sort out. How I did it ; First I clean the lures with rubbing alcohol and put them on my drying wheel. Mixed resin & hardener thoroughly for 4 minutes before applying on the lure and start my drying wheel. After 15 minutes I use hair drier to blow away air bubbles if any. Kept the lures on drying wheel for 4-5 hours and then stop keeping the lures still on the drying wheel for curing. The coat was uneven at all the places wit

  13. Hi I want to share my home made Scroll Saw from jigsaw, it works fine and as expected. It was amazing journey of last 6-8 months to reach a final mile stone. As history tells us that need is the mother of all inventions which proved true in my case as well. By mistake I purchased Jig saw with a view to cut timber as well as profile for the wood lures. I tried a lot with jigsaw but could not handle it even while cutting the timber for lures forget about cutting out profile of the lures. This was a great set back for me and spend good time on internet to find any sour

  15. Thanks BobP, for sharing your first hand experiences, do these colors needs special precaution while handing them. I do the same way, MonteSS. Thanks for be there for the help, I have very limited experience of painting lures with airbrush. So far could manage to paint 5-6 lures, sometimes Opaque white gets thin and most of the time not. I have seen that its basically used to paint the belly of the lure. You know when you have carved a great lure are not able paint it because of color in-spite of all option and end up spoiling the bait its so frustrating. Y'day i was trying to
