Copy lathes

Post by froggy06 » Wed Aug 20, 2014 9:05 am

Can anyone shed any light on when lure makers started to use copy lathes for the production of their timber lures , and what makers adopted this method . I have some well " known " hand carved timber lures that I paid big money for that I am now being told "may" have been produced on one of these machines . I have searched previous posts and can't find anything that claims anything different.

Froggy ,

Some that had their own copy-lathes include.....
Jamie Flett
Paul Knellar
Newell
John Bennett
Terry Leadbeater ( built 3 for himself )
Marzy
Steve Jolly ( bounty hunters )
Graemme Forrester & his brother (Darwin )

Others that had their lures made on copy-lathes , but I don't think they actually owned the lathes are

John Ellis
Dave Killalea

There would be many others , but I cannot confirm them.

Thanks for that information Rob , I didn't realize it was such a common practice , but it would make sense as more lures equals more money crazysmilie
