A good site to get an idea into float making is http://www.fishingmagic.com/features/howto/float-making.html The originator, George Lockhart, describes in detail how to make floats and paint them etc., and states he is also prepared to offer advice to any person that makes contact with him via the website. You don't need the mini lathe either as most parts, including ready sanded and shaped bodies are available on eBay through "father_and_son" and fibreglass and carbon fibre stems are available from "wilkeskf"
http://www.talkangling.co.uk/ forum also has several threads on floats and float making.
