  1. Do-It Molds WEY375 Wire forms

    Given the price difference I thought it was worth the trouble. Plus if you ever hang the blade on something you will more than likely get loose without loosing the blade.
  2. Do-It Molds WEY375 Wire forms

    That style will still get loose in the head . Needs to just be an elongated S hook.
  3. Do-It Molds WEY375 Wire forms

    Your welcome. I got pretty sick of those Do-It wires being loose ..
  4. Do-It Molds WEY375 Wire forms

    I use the Do-It lead spoon form (HM-34 I think) cut them in half then put a bend on the cut end to hold it way better than the Do-It wires . However you will need to do some measuring .
  5. Hook comparison chart

    Checked Barlowe's but forgot about the hook drop down . Thanks for jogging my memory.
  6. Hook comparison chart

    Yep tried the search. Guess I better spend more time with it .
  7. Hook comparison chart

    Well I've been out of circulation for a while now and need to know if any of us have put together a hook comparison chart for jig hooks used in molds that are not necessarily recommended for a particular mold type. 2nd which mfg makes the shortest 90 degree bend from shank to eye. They are probably going to be crazy across the board but had to ask . If I had been smart I would have done a chart over the years . However I ain't the sharpest tool in the shed.

    If you guys just have to order from anywhere other than the U.S. or Canada Please order from people that support the U.S.A. and vice versa. I prefer to order if I order outside the U.S. to use Print-A-Lure in Israel. Generally get it in a couple weeks once it is made. Vitaly Osti is his name He seems to be a decent fellow bent on good service.
  9. Hard to find hair?

    Thanks for the info. Push come to shove I'll try it if I can't talk him out of trying to simulate it .
  10. Hard to find hair?

    I guess I should ask , What is the best , closest thing I can use in place of polar bear hair . I can't seem to find any optic fiber in a small enough diameter to tie with and still have any action .
  11. Yes, another powder coat Q: best coverage for multiples

    I used electro static for along time . I covered exposed wire and eyes with low residue painters tape . The coat was consistent and baked out well. When I started scaling back and only do lures for myself and choice friends I went back to vinyl paint with an epoxy coat .
  12. Anyone Developed a Weedless Underspin Yet?

    Oh Lord Pard , your trapped in Oklahoma Too. The moss grow'ingest most'us brush' log and tree filled water outside a swamp there is I think . I was looking at Long Lake Lures Pics . I have in the past used The titanium weed eater line for things like that because it stood being poured in lead . I then put on a blade and swivel by folding a loop crimping down the tag end with a brass or steel sleeve . Don't know if that will be worth anything to ya down the road or not .
  13. Best finish coat to use over CS vinyl paint

    I've used klass Kote for years . But I do very little spraying epoxy coats . I dip or Brush where possible .
  14. Hard to find hair?

    Tie it up and put them out there for sale . Surely you know somebody that buys jigs from you that would like to have some vintage lures.
  15. Hard to find hair?

    Looks like I'm up a stump on this one . Time to do some bear research . I'm wondering what gives the bear the special hair quality we crave as tiers .
