Making your own lure's

Yeah that's a good idea Bloodworms easy to rig up too.. We used to dry matching plates when sprayed at work over a 100 watt globe so that mounted in a wooden box would also work, just have a little swing latch door at the front..

Damo like I said I dont make my own HB's but if I did & paint drying was an issue I recon I'd get pee'd off having to re do them.

Drying lamps are another option, saw those infa reds recently [dear as hell] @ a mates paint shop they're supposed to dry the paint from inside out opposed to the heat lamps which dry the outside 1st.

If anyone is thinking about making a mini oven look up in the yellow pages coolroom panel manufacturer's if any in your area pop in & ask if you can have any scrap pieces they'll be happy you're taking them away & should not charge you.

40 mm x 40 mm x 1.2 mm alluminiun angle a few pop rivets & there's your drying chamber.

Element ? cost you around $40 but if you come across an electric hot water system just grab element out of it.

Thermostat ?? around $40 again

Bear in mind I may out of touch with prices these days


But if anyone wants a ready made oven for drying keep your eyes open in say the trading post for any old pie wamers they'd be ideal most are only 10 ampers but even if you come across a 15 amp one just change the plug over.

Set the thermostat to desired temp & Bobs your uncle

Nathan you just have to think about the size of the lure and what your working with nothing worse than tring to fiddle around stuff...A wooden box would be fine just line it with aluminium foil...The thing with 2 pac is that the drying process is a chemical reaction just like areldite etc you can dry it outside but the mini booth would keep the dust off and harden the paint quicker because of the warmth..

I started making this lure a few days ago, it should dive pretty deep. Hope it works.

Asked this in Tips and Tricks, but thought I'd throw it on here too. What wood are you crafters using for your crankbaits/plugs?
Also need a source for 1 mm Lexan and Perspex (for testing).
