This is a very long video.  It is part 1 of 3.

Channel:  Bob La Londe
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h8FkXnEII48
 
It showcases 2.5D Operations with CamBam with credit to HSM Adviser, Camotics, and ViaCAD 2d/3d Pro

Part 1:  This part is about designing a simple wacky rig bait mold that can be cut on any CNC milling machine capable of facing, drilling, slotting and engraving aluminum.  I do not guarantee you can cut this on your machine with the settings I use in this video.

Part 2 will not be published on this channel.  It will be published on the "CNC Molds N Stuff" channel.  Part 2 will be about cutting the mold and making any corrections and adjustments.  After the mold is complete I'll show the basics of injecting the plastisol (soft plastic) into the mold to produce single color wacky rig baits and two different styles of two color baits.  

Part 3 will be published on the channel "Five Minutes On The Water."    It will cover rigging and fishing the bait on local public waters and hopefully some of the first catches with the bait.  

About the mold:  If you want to make your own have at it.  If you fish and own a CNC machine this might make a great fun project.  

If you want to buy the mold I will offer them for sale at http://www.cncmolds.com after Part 2 has been published.  Just enter Wacky Winger in the search box.  The mold will not be available for sale until after the part 2 video is published.  

WOULD YOU LIKE TO GET THIS MOLD FOR FREE???
I will be making three of them to give away for free as 1000 subscriber celebrations for each of my three YouTube channels.  

1.  Bob La Londe
2.  CNC Molds N Stuff
3.  Five Minutes On The Water

Rules:  You must be a subscriber of the channel to have a chance to win the mold given away for that channel.  You must like the video on that channel that is part of this three part series.  You must make a 1st level comment on the video for that channel that starts with the words ENTER ME TO WIN.  1st level means, "Not a reply to another comment."  Whenever the appropriate channel reaches 1000 subscribers I will randomly draw from those entered to win and make a reply to your entry comment letting you know you have won.  From there we can make arrangements about how to get your prize to you.  Yes, if you subscribe to all three channels, like the appropriate video, and post the ENTER ME TO WIN comment on each one you will have three different chances to win.  There is absolutely no cost to enter and the winner will be decided by a random number generator after I count the entries.  

Eligibility to win is open to anybody who does not live in or have a shipping address in a nation restricted for trade or other reasons by the USA.  I will pay shipping.  If your country chooses to charge a duty or tax unfortunately you will have to pay that yourself.

David, Andy, If this is to spammy let me know and I'll edit the post.  I doubt anybody here has any interest in buying a mold from me.  They would just make their own.  I was just hoping the video might be useful to somebody from a learning to use CamBam point of view.

It takes a lot to get me to watch a 36-minute vid.  But that was fascinating, Bob!  Good job.

If it wasn't for 4X speed on the machining part and 6X speed on the plastic making parts Part (2/3) would have been unwatchable.  I agree.  I actually only watched it thru once myself.  Just enough to see my two little caption notes were a minute or so before the video they applied to.  LOL. 

Video Part (1/3) was more for the 50 or so guys who follow me on my personal channel for information on using CamBam.  It was totally unwatchable for me at well over an hour.  More of a taped live stream than a produced video. 

Part (3/3) should be more fun.  It will be a highlights video of the first day I spend on the water fishing the bait.  Probably not much use for you guys, but it should be a better produced video if I can talk my son or one of his buddies into being an active camera man for me.  I like outdoor videos shot by a camera man much better than body cam and selfie stick video.  I'll probably run a body cam, and maybe an under water cam, but I want a live camera man who can follow the casts.  Of course if I don't catch anything it might just be a bloopers reel. LOL.

NOT PART THREE

This is a spin off video on rigging the bait produced in this mold.  Its only 8 minutes long so not much of a chore to watch.  LOL.  I have not yet had time on the water to shoot part 3.

Heh!  I watched it, Bob.  But I was never a "serious-enough" fisherman to ever develop all that vocabulary.

Heck... I didn't even know such terms existed!

I still fish (and catch) -- mostly still-water fishing.  But I have to be amazed at how 'technical' the sport has become.

The most competitive sport fishing in America is probably "bass" fishing.  That is largemouth, smallmouth, and the closely related **spotted bass.  Interesting they are not actually in the bass family.  They are in the percidae family.  More closely related to perch and freshwater sunfishes like bluegill and shell crackers than bass.  They have been miscategorized more than once.  One colloquial term once used for largemouth is "green trout."  They aren't related to salmonids either.  LOL.  Anyway, "bass" (even smallmouth) have a very large mouth for their size, and an appetite much larger than that.  I caught a 4lb largemouth once that had the remains of a channel catfish stuck in his throat.  Based on the head and skeleton I pulled out I'd have guessed the channel cat at around 3-4 lbs before its body was dissolved away by the digestive juices of the bass.  Its rare that you need to down size the hooks even for very modest size bass.  I typically tell people to use the largest hook you can that does not impede the action of the bait you are using.  I've caught smaller bass on lures that were longer than they were.  Their mouth isn't as big as some of the trapdoor mouth fish, but its big.  If you have a good bag in a tournament you can put your fist in the open mouth of the smallest one in your bag.  A bigger hook tends to mean better more consistent hook ups.  When money is on the line a missed fish means the difference between taking home a check and paying your expenses out of pocket again.  


Heh!  I watched it, Bob.  But I was never a "serious-enough" fisherman to ever develop all that vocabulary.

That's what competitive fishing does.  Its what competition does in any sport really.  It forces people to think and develop.  Its not static.  There is always that one guy who thinks outside the box.  I am fortunate in that I love fishing, and often I get to see other peoples outside the box thinking before anybody else.  Some of the most creative work I've done has been to figure out how to do stuff that other folks say is impossible or atleast impractical.  Sadly most of the really cool stuff I can't show you guys.  
  

** Spotted bass in this context are a freshwater subspecies very closely related to largemouth bass. Often people struggle to tell the difference, and its my uderstanding that its possible for them to interbreed.  They are not related to saltwater spotted bass that you might catch in near shore fishing.
