Thanks for telling me about your post Flash. thumbsupsmilie

After I watched the footy (go tiges) I loged back on and read it all and I hope to pick up the lure making as well as you have in such a short time
very impresive lures mate bowsmilie

I see why you like the king billy - the carved ones are good enough to sell clapclap

I will look forward to seing you and your boys lures in future posts.

Cheers Rick

Thanks guys . dieter i find this particular lure swims like most lures with a nice shimmy and no body roll but due to its shape a not much ballast it wont roll over to the upright position if it lands upside down . Trawling only lure this one . Im in the process of making a huon pine one that i hope will sit right way up . Fingers crossed

Good luck with that one , FLASH , .......only crayfish I ever did a few years ago(turned down a segmented body on my lathe and attached moveable timber nippers with small interconnected eyescrews) was a proper reject , ....it simply would not swim , ........I reckon this failure scared me off up until today to make another attempt , .....but one day will be the day lol !

Glueing in the bib after painting means that no masking of the bib would be neccessary , so a little less working effort , ......at least , if things do work out fine -duh lol .

Issues may occur , when thicker paint or paint dripping flows into the bib slot and as a result the bib won't fit in anymore without having to re-work the slot .

Same thing counts for the final topcoat as well , ......overflow of this even more tough stuff would even be harder to remove out of a pre-cut bib slot .

I've seen a Finnish video , where a lurebuilder even CUT the bib slot AFTER painting , but prior to topcoating , ........I never went through such venture , as I'm pretty much certain to damage the paint job around the bib slot's position this way -duh .

Also have to consider , whether your bib would be pinned somehow and whether you would mind the pins(or even small woodscrews)showing on the finished lure ?

I usually glue in my bibs prior to painting and topcoating , I really don't bother about the added working effort , since I enyoy working on lures(also this seals the bib slot off more reliably , I believe) , .......but everyone has to decide for himself .

Also I drill holes and furnish some grooves or little indents with a Dremel router bit into the base of the bib(the part of it sitting inside of the lurebody) , this certainly provides a more reliable glue bond .

Anyway , if you want to glue in your bibs after painting , you should at least do the final topcoats with the bib already assembled , so you can be sure to seal off the bib slot properly , .........but as said before , there are advantages and disadvantages in both methods .

good luck , mate thumbsupsmilie , ........cheers , Dieter howdy

Thanks mate . The last lot was cleared before the bibs went in this morning . Tricky not to damage the slot as you said . The next lot i intend on painting then glueing then the final clear . I hope this will satisfy me . Every lure i do i learn a little more each time .
Cheers FLASH .

Well its been to long since i posted here so i thought i owed you blokes and answer . The truth is ive rekindled on old love . I sold my old dirtbike and bought a newer one and am still in the honeymoon stage . So from me to you im sorry . But the good news is the pedder home bake is on again this year and ive decided to finish a few lures and rip into a few new ones . The first cab of the ranks is the last yabbie i was building . Dosnt swim as nice as i would like but its still looking good nonetheless.
