Plug Building party?

Are any of you interested in getting together for a plug building party. You know, smoke some needlefish plugcigars, drink some pogie oil, all that fun stuff. Maybe we can epoxy bassmaster to the workbench. We can all try different stuff and techniques and learn from each other. So what do ya say?

I could volunteer to have it at my place if it's central enough, we can just put my customers cabinets outside out of the way for one day I'll even clean up the shop. Figure after the fishing season is over OK? Maybe Bob can come and teach us about pouring rubba even.

Thumbs up

I'm in - either place - if there's room for someone who wants to lurk and see how it's done. I won't be doing my own stuff until I have my shed built - maybe next spring... Besides, I want to see the hazzard labels on the 'poxy that BM sniffs anyway

GS - all you need is a hotplate for the rubba - right? You could sell jerkbait mountain field kits: some plastic, tweasers, and a little Pam & Spam...

Fine by me, but I'll have to set up my hot plates outside, unless you have a good strong vent fan. Much to my wife's dismay, I set up on my kitchen stove and crank the fan to the max, which I replaced with the highest cfm exhaust fan I could find. Works pretty good, but it still stinks up the house for a short while. I can bring a few molds down, some plastic and pour up some various baits so people get the feel of how it's done.

Count me in. I'm a sucker for checking out others' workshops. Jealous mostly. Hopefully it'll be on a weekend when the twins are with my ex, as they have uaually found a way to find mischief in my old workshop. Hell, if the job market don't brighten soon, maybe I'll have to turn wood for a S-B.com online store!!!! JR my rates are very reasonable. JK

canalratt, cedar is fine. some of those needles are cedar.

GS, I have a paint room with 2 speeds of fan. One will change the air in the whole shop in no time(turbo) and the other is adequate for fumes. But no open flames in the paint room obviously.

Maybe we can set something up in Nov. on a Sat. or something.
Or even a Sunday and we can set up a TV for football in the background.
The 2nd or 3rd weekend maybe. If not then Dec.

I'd be interested. I would vote early December since some fish through Thanksgiving weekend. the biggest bluefish I ever got was caught a couple of days after Thanksgiving. They were 23 pounds AFTER gutting.

Cool I'll like to check in too...

I'll like to attend this little event too if there's enough room at Slip's house. I've been thinking about building some plugs of my own and this seems like the perfect opportunity.

Well 10x10, seems BM is ready to roll in the sand with just about anyone, so maybe sex is the ticket . Sounds good on the fan Bruce, what about BM and commercial molds for the get together. I've got a few which will be of interest to most, the 9" sluggo comes to mind . Unfortunately the mold from Lure Craft was only a single cavity and time consuming. I'm not sure whether you want to actually get into making molds, maybe just go through the motions and the how to's for pouring baits. Can we use the wife's microwave? Very, very important if you want to speed up the process.

Was at Homedepot this afternoon pricing out stock for a job tmw, and started working the tool dept manager over about the floor model lathe that was hidden behind another display and a solid coating of dust. Guaranteed that no one has even seen that lathe in months. Asked him to think about how much he could knock off the $279 list price...
