In addition to home-made spinners from improvised materials, they can also be made with a stamp, creating your own mold for stamping. Although the manufacturing process of such a mold is quite laborious, it justifies itself, since using the described technology you can make any number of fine home-made spinners, similar to your favorite.
Making homemade spinners with a stamp, making a stamp, casting a punch and die, stamping spinners.
The stamp for homemade spinners is made as follows. A rectangular piece of soft wood, such as a pine board, is taken. To its end with screws through the holes for the clockwork rings the baubles are attached, naturally, without them. Next, draw a pencil outline of the baubles. Now you can unscrew the lure and make a cone out of wood, to which then again on one side again fasten the lure. On the other hand, bolts of wood should be screwed.
The free space between the lure and the tree, as well as all cracks and bumps on the cone, are smeared with plasticine, and the cone and baubles are lubricated with lithol or some other grease. This is done so that the model does not stick to the plaster.
An empty box of suitable size is poured with liquid gypsum. The cone of the model is immersed in it so that the rail rests on the edges of the box. Please note that it is advisable to leave 2-3 cm from the surface of the spoon to the bottom of the box. It is good to put a thin wire in the gypsum – reinforcement for the strength of the form. After hardening the gypsum, the cone can be removed – the mold for casting the punch is ready.
The lure can be removed, cleaned with grease and plasticine and used again on fishing. The resulting gypsum mold is lubricated with lithol, a reinforcing wire frame is made. The ends of the wire 10-15 cm long do not need to be cut – later they will be used for fastening.
Punch and die casting for making homemade spinners by stamp.
The resulting form must be filled with gypsum. After hardening, the finished gypsum cone is removed – for this, the left ends of the wire are used. If you did everything right, then the mold casting mold is ready. Now, if necessary, you can clean the traces of the screws that secured the spinners in the manufacture of the model.
Punch casting is simple – the gypsum mold is cast with aluminum alloy. The first casting usually turns out badly – until the gypsum mold is heated. Gypsum can withstand 4-5 castings, from which you can choose a punch of normal quality.
Iron castings are taken for casting the matrix, an iron rail is placed on top, to which a gypsum cone is attached using the free ends of the wire. It must be ensured that the mount is parallel to the rail. The mold is filled with aluminum alloy. Usually already the second casting is obtained of a sufficiently high quality.
The edges of the resulting matrix are usually rounded, and they can be cleaned with a sharp cutter. The punch must be processed with a file so that it enters the matrix. Aluminum is fairly easy to process..
Metallurgy in the described method is the most difficult. Everything else can be done at home, but it is difficult to melt aluminum at home – the melting point is too high. But, having searched, you will surely be able to find a workshop where they will help you with this problem. Aluminum raw materials for the production of such a matrix are old cylinder blocks and pistons from motorcycles. Rejected matrices can also be reused..
Making homemade spinners by stamping.
After you have made the die for stamping, the manufacture of the spinners themselves is not difficult. First, a template is made, according to which the billet blank is cut. The workpiece is embedded in the matrix, covered with a punch, and one hit of a heavy hammer to make a spinner is enough.
Spinners are stamped from copper and brass up to 2.5-3.0 mm thick. In this way, it is possible to produce double-sided bimetallic spinners. The blanks are stamped separately, then drilled and fastened with two rivets. The shape of the finished spinner is adjusted by final stamping..
