  13. Help--which Wire Bender To Buy

    Hello forum I'm getting ready to teach myself how to make spinner baits from beginning to finished bait...I've got just about any tool that I might need..I tried needle nose pliers but was disappointed with the final product ...SO I think i'm going to invest in a wire forming tool. I would really like a Worth Bender but can't afford it [800.00+] .so I'm looking for something a little cheaper by about 700.00... I wanted to know if any of you have any experience with the Twistech former or Boggs or any other bender for that matter..I guess i might be able to make one but I don't care much much for the trail and error part of making one .... thanks a lot for your time Ken chantil@roadrunner.com
  14. Wire Benders

    Hey guys , thanks for the rapid response"s .I guess my post was a little vague . I have decided to go with the Boggs bender. I plan on building all sorts of wire baits , spinners and in line spinners etc .... Where do most of you buy your wire in spools?? TIA Ken
  15. Wire Benders

    If someone on this forum was in the market for a wire bait bender ,what brand would you buy? Would you buy wire that was already bent,instead of a bender? Is a bender even needed? thanks for your time Ken
