Mine have been all done by hand, jig saw, pocket knife, wood rasp then sandpaper.  The paint is just some spray cans that I got at Bunnings so its a bit hard to add thinners to!  I'm mainly interested in just getting something that looks ok, has the strength to handle a king and that swims properly at this stage.  Once I've got that sussed I'll think about making them look more fancy but it is a huge learning curve and the possibilities for what you can do are almost endless.

Snap greenguy, I also have been building a drying cabinet...for lures tho. Are they lamps inside your cabinet? Are they for heat or better lighting when epoxying. Good work bro.

Hi Uncle
 
#14  & #20 refer to the gauge or dia rather than lineal with lower numbers being
bigger than higher.
 
From memory 20g is .036" (thousands of an inch) & 14g is .078
 
Rather than having to buy a spool of wire would suggest ss tig welding wire could be
a good option .... from a welding supplies outlet or a ss fabricator.
 
If using 304 or 316 then choose an "L" grade ( low carbon ) as it is a bit more easily
formed or twisted.
 
2205 duplex grade may be worth considering inasmuch as it has twice the yeild strength
allowing smaller dia to be used, also as better corrosion resistance & wear properties.
Most ss grades are subject to acelerated corrosion if enclosed restricting flow of oxygen
& would imagine passing thru wood could be bad for this. It is called crevice corrosion or
oxygen starvation & was the cause of keels dropping off yachts several years back when
316 was used for keel bolts which are enclosed but subject to retained seepage causing
extreme & rapid corrosion. However 2205 has good resistance under these circumstances
but take care tho to avoid if possible any deep surface scratching or scoring which could
lead to fracturing.
 
SS piano wire could be an option if springyness required but will have fairly low corrosion
resistance compared to other grades.

Marlin lure: length 350mm, head diameter 35mm, slant cut at 15 degrees.
Cost: $20.00 for the skirts, the PVC pipe was just lying around the garage and about a buck or two worth of resin.

Nice work GG would have taken a fair amount of time always a bonus when you wrap works out the way you wanted. 

Here is my latest working on a new 300 acid wrap also.
CTS 400 gram with a Stella 20000SW bolted to it and ICMNSG (super ocean) guides.

Just twisted a few eyes up with some 1.6mm ss wire for lures im making.. locked both ends with twists and tested them out on the 50kg scales. I was able to pull just over 40kg of pressure.

Should do the job :) . Think i will be investing in some 1.2mm or even thinner for the smaller lures after seeing this performance.Clap
here fishy, fishy fishy.....

I Can't get the boat in the shed so made this cover for the motor. Its zipped to the road cover and domed at the sides. The fabric is Sunbrela and I linned the insides with a none scratch breathable fabric. Easy to make and protects the motor and all the rubber and plastic fittings from the weatherThumbs Up
