■ GINEI Handmade Lure - Production Engineering "Pure Silver Foil"
■ GINEI Handmade Lure - Production Engineering "Finishing process"

【GINEI Handmade Lure Production Process】 We introduce "Molding".

■ Wood material
We are using the finest Yellow Cedar "Japanese name US hiba" of carefully selected wood material.
"Other names" Alaska cypress, Alaska cedar.
Through 50 or more manufacturing processes, we are making ultra precision lures.
When writing a lure type on a tree, it is important to look at the grain.
The position on the ventral side of the lure is positioned so that the wood grain is crowded.
If you stick together the left and right, the belly of the lure becomes heavier and the back side can be lighter.
A delicate balance feeling can be obtained by using the characteristic of the tree.




■ Outline Molding
After cutting "width" "standing width", it cuts it to a round shape.
Unless molded accurately, equivalent lure products can not be made.
I am forming with a knife finish sense.




■ Completion of cutting of outer shape
The cutting of the outer shape with the knife was completed.




■ Sandpaper Finishing
I am doing it beautifully with sandpaper hanging on the finish of the external shape.
We will finish with sandpaper to such an extent that surface irregularities disappear.




■ Precision molding
We will measure the error.
It is OK with each error 0, 5 mm or less.
The first production process becomes important.




■ Avoid molding errors
The error will be 0, 2 mm.
Each error is set to be within 0, 5 mm.
In the case of the same wood, an error of grams is usually ± about 2 g.
The difference in the number of grams will change with the weight of the wood.
Due to the difference in the weight of the wood, an error of about ± 5 g maximum appears.




■ Ultra precise wood grain
I think you can see that the wood grain is crowded.
If it is not "US hiba" material, "GINEI Lure" will not be born.

Up to this point, I have informed you of precise molding, but it is not a part that emphasizes only the precision difference.
Precision molding becomes a good balance and it is reflected largely in lure action.
We, the builder industry will be over 25 years.
We have been cutting thousands of lures so far so we can produce equivalent lure products.




■ Face
It becomes a process of facial carving.
Even in order to evenly carve the left and right positions, underline is drawn using the mold.







■ Face carving
After underlining, cut it with a knife along the underline.
We will scrape with the underline as the axis.
After engraving with a knife, we will finish sandpaper.
Formation of the outline was completed here.
By the way, the large lure does not have much elaborate lure.
We are pursuing a real difference by spending time and effort spending time to make a lure which is nothing else.





■ V shape of wood grain
I think that you can see that the wood grain is V-shaped when we combine the grain materials.
The lower side gets slightly heavier and the upper gives delicate buoyancy, giving an exquisite balance feeling.
Ultra precision shaping taking advantage of the characteristics of the material is the basis of the GINEI Lure.




■ Divide timber into two pieces
Divide the left and right wood that was temporarily affixed with double-sided tape into two pieces.
I peel off the adhesive cleanly.




■ Inner diameter structure
In order to determine the position of the center of gravity of the inner diameter, we draw an underline using a mold.
It cuts with a knife along the underline and carved with a sculpture sword.





■ Center of gravity movement system
We will set the inner diameter center of gravity movement system.
A moving ball uses a chrome ball.
The mobile room uses pure aluminum pipe.
Chrome ball We will set it so that we can afford to some extent.
I pasted an iron circle on both ends and made it completely waterproof.
By the way, since the center of gravity movement system has been doing for more than 25 years ago, I have been doing it from the early days in Japan.






■ Hook hanger
We will introduce the contents of hook hanger.
We are using 1, 6 mm of hard tone stainless steel wire.
We fix the folded part with repair thread in one piece, we are enhancing the strength.
No matter how big a fish catches, the hook hanger will not be destroyed.
Strip rings and hooks will cause damage.
The work of the moving system and hook hanger production has ended.
There are different versions of the same lure item by weight, position, length, number of chrome balls of the moving system.
In other words, depending on the type of lure posture another lure action is born and there are many version products.




■ Laminate the left and right wooden molds
Since the moving system, the hook hanger was completed, next we will begin bonding the inner diameter.
In particular, we strongly pour adhesive into "Moving System" part to enhance strength waterproofness.
Tighten the right and left wood with glue so that it does not get exactly wrong.
We use rubber to further enhance adhesion.
In order to enhance the strength waterproofness, we will reinforce the bonded part with adhesive from the outside.
After completing the right and left lamination, we will finish the sanding with sandpaper on the whole.





■ Specification of back scales pattern
Back scaled pattern specification, "Saury fish", "flying fish" It is the specification type which gave the wood grain.
Other back scales pattern specifications are also available in the version item.
Underline at 2 mm intervals.
Next, cut into the diamond shape with a blade along the line.






■ Outline Molding Completed
It is the completion of the back scales pattern.
Next, in order to give the texture of the wood, paint the oil stain.
In the case of back scaled pattern design, I will paint the entire back.
Oil stain coating completed.
After this, apply cellulose cement (film coating) twice.
