Powder coating of spinner bladed
« on: 06/14/17 08:58 UTC »
So new to forum and to lure making.
I have been using powder coat paint for my spinner blades bu
When trying them out in the water they will not spin
Until the baits are traveling very quickly.
My suspicion is that the powder coating is adding too
Much weight to the blades, if this is the case, do I need
To change my method of painting to an air brush method?

Fluid bed or air brush I think would help but I'm no expert in painting spinner blades.

Pretty sure if you heat and dip, even in a fluid bed, powder paint will add a bunch of weight to your blades. Some guys have some success using a powder paint sprayer to put thin powder on blades. TJ sells those.

Paterry....

Welcome to the Do-It forums.

I don't powder coat spinner blades of any kind. I use either the Quick Coat lure dip or an airbrush and acrylic. The air brush will give you a way better finish if you are doing more than one color.

Again, welcome aboard!

What kind of spinner, in-line or safety pin type? What size blade? I powder coat blades and never had any problem with them spinning.

I've been powder coating my chatter-bait blades, seems to work OK but have to do a lite dip.
