Home made spinner

Postby APOSTLE » Mon Sep 17, 2012 1:18 pm

Threw this together last night when I got board. Modified a design I saw in a YouTube vid.

Internal workings here. Looking at a cloths line pully on a piece of 1/4 inch threaded rod with nylon spacer held together with 4 nuts. Also used the spacers as bushings in the side of the decoy. The glue u can see was used to glue the bushings to the decoy. The PVC T is to hold the conduit. I zip tied it to the shell and also threw a drywall screw in for good measure.

Here is a front and back view.

The wings are glued to a corner support from the shelving department which is shoved into the cloroplast. I then wing nutted the corner support to the threaded rod.

Will take any suggestions on improving the design.

I haven't had that issue although I have only tested it in my yard.

I tied a snap swivel on the line where it comes out of the decoy. You have to have the band tight and then tie the swivel on. You want constant tension so the string stays tight. Try that an let me know how it goes.

Looks good. Have you thought about mounting a small eye bold on the pole to run your line through so instead of going straight up to the deke it runs along the ground/water (or even under water) and then straight up the pole into the bottom of the duck.

I got the line tight and had no more issue with the line coming off. What did you use for your bungee

There is a video on youtube on how to make one.

OK, I gathered all the parts, and made mine today. I just need to do the wings. All together I think I will be in it about $10.

I am have the string running out the front right now, but I am going to change it to ren out the bottom and down the pole. Making an adjustable loop to run the cord through should not me that hard.

I am gonna do up a diver as well, just use one set of wings. Anyone else use a spinner for divers??
