Lure Making
« on: October 30, 2010, 12:27 PM »
Thanks again to everyone for taking the time out of their schedules to make the class.  I think it went pretty well and I really hope you all walked away with some tips to get you started and have as much fun as I do making my own.  If anybody has any questions I am more than happy to answer.  We covered quite a bit in 3 hrs.  I will also post some info on things I don't think I covered in enough detail below.  

I would also like to extend a special THANK YOU to our friends at Alumilite and Larry Dahlberg for their assistance in making the class a reality.   I could not have done this without them.

Here is a list of resources and some pics from the class below:

Some more info:

Volume Calculator:  This is an online calculator to determine how much material will be needed for making molds and using casting resins (plastics).  Molds: You will need enough for the size of the mold box minus the volume of the parts you are making the mold for.

http://makelure.com/CalcVolume.cfm

When making your mold, predetermine if it will be a one or two-piece mold and A) How you are going to pour the finished pieces and B) how you are going to remove them.

Types of Materials recommended:
Lead Molds:  Mold Putty or Quick Set
Hard and Soft Plastic Molds:  High Strength II or III

Bouyancy:

You can add materials such as salt to increase weight or Microballons to increase flotation
Hard Plastics: Alumilite White or Regular - add microballoons to make a top water lure
Soft Plastics: Alumisol

Always remember safety when working with these products.

Im putting together some of the video we shot - this was a introductory class on several different types of lures.  If there is interest I'd do it again and try o get into more specifics on one type of lure - maybe even over two nights so we can make molds the first night and make lures the second night

Interesting.  Good Stuff here.  How about Jig heads/hooks.  I was thinking of getting a mold ... probably a 2, 3 oz shad head.  Thoughts?

They sell swimbait jigheads fairly cheap on eBay. I bought 25,  3 or 4 ounce, and it was only around $25. They come unpainted which still catches fish. But I powder paint mine then bake them so it cures hard
