Sweet vid man. I would love to see what it looks like once you get it painted and put hooks on it.

Nice video nedyarb! I liked how your hammer strikes to flatten the wire loop matched up with the beat of the track! However, my 9 fingered Junior High shop teacher is tearing his hair out somewhere watching some of that drill press work!!!
making my favorite crank-bait, very nice find!
That is pretty sweet i would also like to see a few finished.
Here are 5 I made last night. In the spring I would like to send a few out to some nefga members so I can get some feed back on howthey work, and what people don't like about them. BTW I need some airbrushing classes!
Paint looks good. Do you get the wood textured Azek?
You using plumbers epoxy to seal the weight?
I put 2 lead balls in for rattles. Then a split shot that weighs 1.8grams. And glue it in with gorilla glue. And seal it with a blue loctite putty from walmart. I think it is plumbers putty? It blue on the outside and white in the middle. Mash it up to mix the colors. BTW thanks to bradh I started this aout a year ago after reading his thread about his crankbait. Rob
I have a few airbrush videos you can get, I think they are helmets, tanks, and flames if I remember right. There might be some techniques that cross over. PM me if interested
They look great!
I have not worked with the materials you are using; do you think those hook hangers will hold up to big fish?
Rob, I have just the place to try those out!!!!

Holes would be drilled clear through the bodies and then the hook hangers were lengths of wire that ran the length of the lure body. Those were glued in place with 5-minute epoxy that was injected clear through those holes.
Daryl, balsa would be best with the wire through, but the pvc holds the hangers really good! Rob
That’s some excellent work. Sure beats the price they are getting for some lures these days. I assume the process would work well for the more elongated style crank baits?
