  1. Just getting started! Obviously I am an amateur. I know I don’t have to start with the very best airbrush, I can work my way up. Has anyone ever used a Masters bran air brush? Also as an amputee, I sometimes have over use issueswith my hand. Has anyone used a trigger style hairbrush? Beginners question. Do I need an air compressor with a tank or can I just run off the small 1/5 horsepower compressor? How loud are these honey type compressors? Sorry for silly questions, but as a double amputee I don’t get to go see everything. Have to trust in others
  2. I am just getting started pouring. I have some questions about some things that I think are important. My first question is If i was to pour one 3 cavity molds of 3 inch grubs out of a do it mold, where about should i fill the pyrex cup to and how much coloring and glitter to put in?

  4. Hi all, I am new to the site and hard bait building. Last year I started lure making but stuck to easier lures like bucktails, spinnerbaits and some other hair/fur type lures.

These are for personal use only, I may give the odd one to a friend but I have no intention of selling them. I have spent the last several months reading a lot of material, includign a lot on here, and trying to figure out my plan of attack and have finally come up with the following process. 1) I will be

    Just curious if there are any other suppliers out there with plastisol, additives, colorants, etc. besides the basic Lurecraft, Baitjunkys, and Mudhole. Looking for decent prices for a beginner! Thanks!
  6. Hi! I want to get my brother a gift certificate for Christmas to somewhere online that sells lure-building supplies, but I don't know where to start.... Came across this forum and figured you all were the people to ask! Ideally, I'd like to find somewhere where he can pretty much get all the basics to make at least one lure. He's into fishing (obviously) and knife-making, so he may have some supplies and tools already from those, but I don't know what. I think he's most likely to be interested in making metal or wood lures... Also, he wants them for bass fishing, if that makes a difference. W
