    Sorry about rule 10, I make specs for cabinets and we use only caps so that the specs are easy to read.

    Wire?

    Can I use any type of steel wire or does it have to specifically be made for tackle making. I am planning on pouring some jigging spoons and I want to make the wire into an oval shape. I notice that wire that was sold specifically for lure making was a lot more expensive than regular wire.

    Where to buy wire?

    Where is a good place to buy wire, What is your prefered thickness, and is there a specific type of stainless wire that I need to get to use them geared towards jigging spoons and through wire construction? would I possibly just get some at home depo, or are they expensive?

    Making a jigging rap

    I make my own jigs for icefishing, and I do very well on them. I also like to use jigging raps too, but they are a lot more expensive than a regular jig. At 5 dollars a piece I thought I would try to make My own. I have seen some home made ones that looked good. I am having a hard time locating the special hooks for them Does anyone knw where I could get those hooks?

    Cutting Balsa

    I am very new to making lures, I tried to carve one today out of balsa and it was quite difficult. I was watching these video's on youtube and the guys seem like it is no problem for them to slice through the balsa when hand carving these lures. Is there a different type of balsa that I don't know about or is it the type of knife I am using. I am using a pretty sharp pocket knife but I have a hard time cutting against the grain.
