How to make an insert.

So I'm happy with the outcome of my lure so I am now going to make an insert for the head "the professional way" but also so I can weight it if I want to.

First I take the original plug and I need to sand the head into a rectanular shape just smaller than the head it's self.

You will also need to make it a little shorter so it is totally encapsulated in the head. It needs to be into the first skirt groove but not the second.

Then you can make a mould of this. Simple mould. Same as we did for the head but this time the need the tube to be held by the mould on both sides. This required that you cut a sprew into it afterwards.

I made my mould with a previous lure. Now I just cast a whole bunch of these and use them as required. Sometimes I need to cut them a little short or bevel the end...
You can also use the mould to pour lead to make a lead insert if you want to weigh the lure down. Preferably though, the mould should be made from Mould Max 60. See http://sealine.co.za/view_topic.php?id=86739&forum_id=78

Then basically wrap the insert in Holographic tape. I would recommend cutting individual pcs for each side, top, bottom and front. Cut it slightly over size, stick and trip with hobby knife.

Some eyes and decals.

I will cut basic eyes from vinyl free for anyone who is already at the mould stage. But you will have to pay for postage.

Refit the tube / 2mm wire and we are ready to cast our second lure.

TIP: If you struggle to get the tube back into the lure/insert. grab the tube/wire in your drill and "spin" it into the lure. Works like a charm.

This is also a nice idea. Same insert but I painted the insert with resin and covered it in glitter. Once dry I coated it with resin again before adding the eyes. The eyes are moulded in moulds I made.

The result. I added slight blue tint to the resin.

Bennie, where do we purchase the polish or is this imported? I see you use this for all your polish work. Tks, great post.

Hi,
I get it from Midas.
The polish is brilliant. I use it on everything from my lure heads to my spoons. But you must get the metal polish, they make different formulas like scratch remover.
