I use another brand plastic, but no chance in he** that it becomes bouyant enough with microbaloons alone, so I make mine with a foam core, but that is almost impossible with the really small stuff.

Micro spheres work fine for small stuff, haven't tried to pour a bigger bait yet because the material is too expensive, cheaper to make it out of wood, even with the labor involved Check out Smooth-On Feather Light - it floats on its own, but its quite pricy for big stuff

I have the understanding that smooth on has some great products for this, but it will be too exspensive to order for me, i manage fine with my foam cores, for now...

Basic to you, still amazing to us That transparent red on the foil makes a kick-**** candy effect.

I mentioned the jig I made up to cut lip slots with accuracy and repeatability...

First here's a shot of the device used to push the wood through the table saw...actually this is from one of my other saws, but I wanted to show a picture of the device before anything is attached to it:

Tackle Making

Now here's the jig... note that I first set the push bar guide (can't remember the actual name of it at the moment) to exactly 90 degrees. I checked the 90 degree angle with a carpenter's square.

Then I attached a piece of wood to act as a wall to which the jig can be attached. The 'wall' is the darker wood in the picture below and the lighter wood forms a frame against which the bait is placed before it is clamped and pushed through the saw. The picture should explain it better than I can but let me know if you have any questions.

(I removed the blade guard just long enough to take the photo...don't use any of your equipment without the guards!)

Very Nice.What angle are you using?And is the jig adjustable should you want to change the angle?

good looking scale patter dude, looks very uniform it shows that you have been practicing that.

Solar, one of the things I enjoy about your baits is the fact that they are displayed with excellent photography. The book should be a winner.

Donkey the angle is one I arrived upon by trial and error many years ago. Have not really put a protractor to it. Thus, the jig is not adjustable, but a key slot in the bottom set screw would be easy to add if the angle needed to be tweaked.

Vince- Thanks for the jig pics and description. That's good stuff for a newbie like myself with a head full of questions.

Solar- More fantastic work as usual. Please keep posting!

Well, I've got about 25 Flatshads started and about 12 others, including some 8.5 inch Flatshads and a jerkbait. Some I'm making from cedar and a few from poplar. Feels good to be building again, even if its slowing going.

Have you been out yet Vince? People were catching some nice fish during that early warm up. I didn't get to take advantage of it. Been having tow vehicle problems but should be getting it back tomorrow.
