Interesting reading about all your techniques. Although I haven’t built many lures in quite a while my friends have put the bug back in me. I’m working on getting a small garage shop up and running for some winter builds and wanted some consistency, the Vega duplicator was an option but wasn’t sure if it was absolutely necessary and cost was another issue. A used one would work if the price was right. The home made duplicators would work and be cost effective as long as I can build one and know it would be safe. Any plans out there on how to build one?
