Modified Mold

Modified Mold

Had this old mold laying around, it doesn't pour very well and leaves alot of flashing. I decided to make it my test mold for a shaky head jig. Here is what I came up with.....

    Here are some jigs I poured using Babbit (sp.), The lead seemed to want to bend a little too easy. I am also considering running some wire in the bait holder......
    Looks OK, I have done this before and the bait needs to be glued onto the barb... I think a barbed 90* jig mold modifying it to take a 60* hook instead of a 90* would leave a better barbed collar to push the bait onto. Making a new path for the hook shank if you know what I mean. :)
