  1. I have almost a full box (973 pcs) of brand new Eagle Claw Spinnerbait hooks. L608 5/0, Lazer Spinnerbait, 1X-long, Needlepoint, nickel $95.00 shipped to lower 48 states. Cash or cashier's check only.
  2. I have them all including the Erie Dearie that Do-It mold made back in the day. However I am not parting with them yet. E-bay has them on and off occasionally. That's where I got the original Erie Dearie.
  3. Been doing that for years. Hell you can get a box of the long X-mas hangers after x-mas for 99¢.
  4. I know that a Owner #5318 3/0 will fit in all of the cavities of the the Do-It mold MFJ-6-A. I Use them for my customers. The only thing I tell my customers is by doing that, you will make the hook top heavy on the 1/16 oz cavity. If he doesn't care, then it doesn't matter.
  5. If you are concerned about lead seepage down a hook shank, well some times that is a good thing. Because, being a smaller hook, this will let air escape when your cavity fills with lead and not giving you any bad pours from trapped air. I usually just cut off the lead overflow down the hook shank with a pair of dykes. If you want to fill it use high temp silicone (it's red). Here are the steps. 1. Fill the cavity you need on 1/2 of the mold with High temp silicone. 2. Smooth over, so it's flat with the mold half. 3. Put the hook where you want it and press it in place. 4. The hook will displace excess silicon, so now remove excess silicon around hook shank. Make sure you hold the hook in place so it doesn't move. 5. Let thoroughly dry(cure) 6. Next day, slowly take hook out of silicone mold (you may have to slice it out with a razor). Be careful not to pull the silicone out. 7. Once you have the hook out, take a single edge razor blade and shave off (clean) all of the excess silicone on the mold half so it will close tight. 8. Do the same thing on the other mold half so both halve will center the hook in the mold cavity. If you want a permanent fix, you can use JB Weld instead of silicone .

    Teflon Inserts

    I have had the same Teflon inserts for 6 years. When I use them for paint, I wait till they cool and then I bend them slightly in the middle, and all the paint cracks and falls off. I never scrape mine.
  7. Did you try Lakeland or Hagen's?
  8. Very nice looking bait, glad everything worked out for you. Now you're hooked and you will stimulate the economy by buying more and more and more.
  9. Mark, That can't be true. Because if I was a magician, I would be able to load up the boat with fish and become a professional fisherman. Maybe my "Magical" jigs aren't really that magical.
  10. I have the Hagens wire former. I can tell you this. The Hagen's will form tight wraps up to .041 like the Twistech. However you have to keep pressure on the spindle as you push and turn the handle. I don't know if that is easier or harder then the Twistech as I don't own the other two. I will say when bending .062 wire, it is easy to do with the Hagen's however I find the wraps are a little looser, maybe because of all the effort it takes to bend the thicker diameter wire. Thanks for the comparison.
  11. Ramiro, Well I'm sad to hear. You have been on hear a long time and have contributed help to many here. You have helped me many times in the past as well. I hope all is well. Good luck in your future endeavors. Stop by and say hi to us here. Ted (Cadman)
  12. I checked my 5304 and they fit all the heads in that series. You have a PM.
  13. nwbass, I use both brush jig mold models with the #5304 hooks, without any problems. I just looked at my molds, and none of my hook eye pins have been removed from the molds. With that said, I believe that the hook eye pins are tapered. First of all what hook sizes are you wanting to put in what head sizes(ounces) You can't put a 1/0 #5304 hook in a 1 oz hidden brush jig. You can , but you will have to remove the hook eye pin from the mold, and like smalljaw mentioned you will have a lot of clean-up. So let's start with what hook sizes you want in each mold cavity, and then we can go from there. Attached is a pic of #5304 Owner deep throat hook in a brush jig. So yes it can be done with minimal effort.
  14. Hi Ron, I honestly don't know what the temp I'm pouring at as I haven't checked it in awhile. In my Lee bottom pour, I keep the dial at 7-8. Now I have a mixed lead alloy. So I'm not pouring pure soft lead. Sometimes 80% soft/20% hard and sometimes 70/30. I never pour with my pot maxed out especially when I pour 3 and 4 oz weights. I found with heavier weights, the molds expand especially after continuous non-stop poring, and the pours aren't as consistent. I have never heard of the alloys separating. How hot was your pot?
  15. I've found that to be true as well. I have spoken to Shorty's, and I believe they were looking into possibly stocking these. They usually have good pricing when you buy 1K at a time. I don't know if they have worked it out yet.
