LURE BODY LURE
LURE BODY Lead
lure bodies are used to make weighted spinners or they can be used alone as
streamlined slip sinkers. The lure body is first molded onto a reusable steel
.040 core shaft (part No. 61-1924) to form the hollow core. The core shaft can
be stripped away immediately in the mold or later from the extracted parts after
they have cooled. One core shaft per cavity is included with each mold. Extra
0.040 core shafts parts are available to increase molding speed.
LURE ASSEMBLY: A
closed looped wire shaft of .024 - .031 diameter is used to assemble the lure.
Typically a weighted spinner is made with a stirrup
clevis and Swing Blade or French
Blade mounted on the wire shaft, followed by a small bead or two to provide
a smooth bearing surface. The lure body mounts behind the bead. A hook snap or
twisted eye is then formed on the end of the wire shaft to keep everything in
place. The type and size of hook is optional, but often a small treble hook is
attached. The hook can be used plain, dressed with hook tubing or material, such as bucktail, can be attached to dress the lure.
