Let's Get Started

STEP 1

Step 1

Begin by marking the location of two holes using a center punch. Secure the spoon in a vice and drill the holes using a 9909 tungsten carbide cutter. The holes should be large enough in diameter for a split-ring to turn into them.

STEP 2

Step 2

Secure the spoon in vice and cut off the spoon handle using the EZ456 cut-off wheel and the EZ402 mandrel. Next, grind the cut edge smooth by using the 932 aluminum oxide grinding stone to remove any burrs.

STEP 3

Step 3

Secure the spoon in vice and polish concave side of the spoon using 423E polishing cloth with the EZ402 mandrel and 421 polishing compound. Paint the convex side of lure using auto body touch-up paint.
