    Home Made Lures...............Post Your Completed Projects Here

    my 2 cents ... have seen & tried spoons from that mold ... don't recommend them ... just a slab of lead. jigging/casting are not strong do-it strong points ... their molds are old old school. For the best, go west to japan/asian designs.

    Got Me a Flutter Lure Mold

    I think the hot stamping foil has a layer of adhesive that reacts to heat and pressure. The nail foils don't have any adhesive on them. There is also toner reactive foil that has adhesive that only sticks to laser toner or plastic. And a hot stamping foil that sticks to plastisol by applying...

    Making Your Own Metal Jigs

    Don't want to hijack your thread. It is indeed tricky to work with the nail foils ... do a search in tackleunderground.com forums for some answers. The key is to find an adhesive that sticks well enough to the jig that it isn't pulled off by the foil. Try precoat adhesive layer, dry and make...
