Bluey, were you 'Balls ' in another life?? LOL On second thoughts I think 'Balls' lived in Darwin somewhere, I have not heard from him since I posted his rattle idea for him a few years back-- I have some of his lures,-- nice.

Bubble Float Lures
I may have posted these before??
I made these out of bubble floats a couple of years back- I thought they would be just right for Bream, got heaps of hits on them but they seemed to be too fat for a Bream's mouth-- they would certainly work on Jacks.
What I like about these is you can add or subtract water to set your depth (same as the float) and they cast a mile-- Once you get set up, easy to make too.
 
The newer versions with the tapered centre plug, inserted from the rear are best.
Pete

Thanks Aaron, I saw that too- I have tried all sorts of trendy beers, but I keep coming back to Melbourne Bitter,( NEVER VB)- -------------------Except when in U.K,Sweden/ Denmark, I could not believe how good their beer is ---AND I'm not really abeer drinker!!
You will need to stick some weight in those floats, I used some 'shot' out of shotgun shells.

You can get very small wad punch sets  from craft shops.

My lure making has been very slow of late , other projects have jumped the queue.
 
Bluey- I was looking for my small wad punches yesterday to make a gasket for my air brush--didn't find them, must be lost in all the rubble here- had to make do with a paper punch.

AHHHH chris, finally someone has posted one of their treasures (secret treasures)-- Iv'e seen a few lip presses (on this forum and others) and they are all the same principle even though we all are beavering away in isolation - Eric Moller has one on the 'meet the makers' thread and it is pretty much the same principle as yours/ mine but it's probably 50 years old.
Great to see I was on the right track 25 years back, I did not get past a round bib though - the old B&D drill press, I eyed them many a time but never had the cash, way back then I also looked at wine cork presses and beer cap presses - If only Eric you and I (and probably a heap of others ) had got together we would be 10 machines down the track by now.
Here's mine, (with some plans) punch is made out of a truck shock absorber shaft, then I got a backyard engineer to 'turn me the die, worked well, I used to cut 20mm Al, brass and Polycarbonate bibs with it-- I still punch a few for 'Nicho' because he's into "Retro" stuff  LOL LOL---how times have changed !!!!!.
Thanks Chris for posting yours.
Pete
Sorry Tony for all the pictures but I thought maybe someone may want to make one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is the old lure I used them on (50mm).
 
Punch
 
 
Die, what the punch fit's into.
 
Punch and die together with a sheet of Al ready to punch
Punch and die with slot in side for sheet
 
 
Then a mate welded up a handle so I would not have to use a hammer--get set up and you could probably knock out 100 in half an hour--eats polycarbonate.
 
Here's a drawing:
 
To punch that small hole for the tow wire to go through the bib I used/use a cheap 2 pin paper punch.

I got tired of my bib templates moving when tracing them onto the polycarb, so took a couple of rare earth magnets, a nail and voila:





I will cut the head of the nail off and glue it on permanently, but a steel template would work even better. These RE magnets are damn strong, so they hold it on strongly. These were what I had on hand (they hold the wings on some of my RC planes on), but a square or round flat one would work even better.

Just slide the whole thing along and it pivots easily into a new space. No clips, clamps or tape and only needs one finger to stop it from spinning if you push too hard.

I get my magnets from http://www.frenergy.com.au/ really great service, pretty good price and they're local.

Steve

Nice one Steve, I'm a fan of these magnets too, I have used them  'extensively' in the van to keep drawers closed, bed legs up and down etc--the thing I don't like is when they are 'mating' in the magnet drawer, you need a referee to separate them.
Thanks for posting.

that bib press of yours is a ripper Pete,i like the round bibs and they work well its a pity there arent more lures out there with them.you would've liked the motorized brake presses that I used to work on mate,they'd press thousands out in an hour, i have often though of buying a small one and setting it up in my shed with a die that did half a dozen different sized bibs at once.

Acquired this around 12 years ago been resting, and accumulating a lot of dust , belt may now be suspect.
At the time I was told it was a  Lapidary  Machine
I bought it   for some type of fishing application, yet decided.
 
Some of  the machine Guru on the site maybe able to work out a suitable application
Some photos follow.

Hey Chris, I worked on small brake presses also when I first started at Chrysler. It was agood job. You could press out enough bibs in one day to do you a life time with one of those.

John- Looks like that is a saw to cut stones, add a fine timber blade and you have a saw for wire slots and/ or  bib slots - It's pretty heavy duty! the rusted bed sort of indicates wet cutting, which is what they do gem stones with. I have something similar but its made from modern day aluminum, no rust LOL
I have often looked at those cheap, wet tile cutting saws at Bunnings, thinking they would make a good mini saw.
Thanks for posting John, good find.

Thats them Verlon,you can pick up the small ones here at machinery auctions occasionaly for less than a thousand dollars its just a case of changing the 3phase motors over for single phase ones
then.the dies are a different matter though,you'd pay anything from $500 to $2000 for the die
 
that lapidary saw looks interesting John as Pete said it'd make a good bib slot saw

Here's a handy little gague:

 
 
Called a 'Sewing and Knitting Gague' , it's thinner then 'Vernier calipers” but not as accurate, but because it's so thin it's good for measuring bib slot depth, wire slots etc- you can buy them here –


http://sewing-online.com.au/haberdashery/hand_sewing/sewing_aids/Sewing_and_Knitting_Gauge/


I bought mine off an 'Amish' lady on a farm in Missouri (another story) @ about triple what this local site is selling them for.

Has a sliding stop, so if you are like me you don't have to remember the measurement.

are the edges of the die or the punch sharp and what kind of pressure do you need to exert? Might see if i can heath robinson something up using my champagne/beer capper.

Pete, just found this thread some great stuff on here.
The 'Balls' you refer to is a chap named Wayne Baldwin, he made lures from timber with stick on halographic eyes and they were originally called 'Two Dogs', (probably after that old Red Indian joke years back). Then I think he changed them to 'Scurvy Dogs'?, or so a bloke told me recently, this chap has a few. I purchased a few from one of Wayne's mates in the early 90's. Don't know if he still makes, but he's still in Darwin, as his name was in a recent newspaper fishing report. I remember him from my days with the Darwin Game Club, maybe you can make contact through them, I'm no longer a member. Someone told me he now works at N.T. Fisheries.

Steve
 
Steve- sorry for the delay, I have been away for a while.
The face of the punch normally is just ground @ 90 deg to the side if you can call that sharp--it acts much like a guilotine in that the force applied and the close tollerances between the punch and the die just sheers the metal / plastic or whatever to the shape of the punch, in my case I just ground the angles / facets I wanted impressed in the bib, so first it bends the sheeto this shape, then cuts the outline, in my punch it's round, in more advanced ones like Puglees its an actual 'bib' shape.
Really not much force involved, but this would depend on the size of the bib (diameter+ thickness  = Kg' / sq Cm  etc)-- the one pictured is only a 20mm x 1mm thick disc so you can press them with one arm (with a hand lever of about 50Cm).
 
Hope this helps.
Pete
