If you're in a place where you can't lunge him, take the same approach(making him work when he attempts to bite you). Back him up. Basically, take the kid out of the candy store. This is doubly good because, if he can't be in your space, he can't bite you.
You have to force him to respect your space. Eventually he will associate biting with having to work. It's the same idea as using a nail - the horse will associate biting with a negative consequence.
A horse is a mirror to your soul. And sometimes you may not like what you see. - Buck Brannaman
