    As a fan of ghost lures I'd like to try making some lure from lol clear materials ( eg cast acrylic) . Anyone have experience of working or turning with anything like this.Am told you can turn acrylic on wood lathe but must be cast rather than extruded.Any information on this or other clear materials much appreciated.

    As a engineer acrylic tends to frost when turned and yeah you can turn it on a wood lath my advise would be to take small cut at high rpm with a sharp tool and dont let it get warm or it ul frost for deff
