Default Re: Homemade lathe...

Hey guys, here are some pics of a homemade lathe I made in about 2 hours that works pretty good. My uncle gave me the motor which originally had a grinding wheel on it so I modified it to turn plugs. I use my dremel and sand paper to shape the plugs and I can usually turn 5-6 per hour. I have had some luck with my own plugs catching a bunch of bluefish and hooking up with a yellowfin tuna on a trip to the 100 square with the squid plug. I was using a rod with only 15lb test mono and even though it was only a 20lb fish it stripped all the line off and lost the fish and the plug. It felt good to hookup with a tuna on my own handmade plug. I figured i would post some pics to give some ideas on how to make your own lathe. Good luck this season and tight lines. Paul
