  1. Many years ago Like when I was knee high . I heard that referred to as a bird perch or a perch swing. Definitely one your gonna have to make yourself. I made a single blade similar to that for a guy about a month ago. The difference was the head swung not the blades.
  2. Are you referring to a twin spin where the wires are on the left and right or a spinner with 2 vertical wires.
  3. I am looking at the same problem after all these years. I always bought them cut and straight . But unfortunately now I have coils of wire sent to me by a former customer wanting me to make lures for him . At this time the only straighteners I have seen that work are extraordinarily expensive. The little hand held Dubro is made from brass . Stainless steel will eat that up in time . I will be following this.
  4. Save yourself some trouble and invest in an electro-static spray gun for powder coating. As mentioned above cover the points. Painting small parts by dipping can become very aggravating.
  5. The longer the feathers the higher the cost.
  6. Get ready to pay about 90 dollars a pound for long feathers. On big lures you can figure as a rule of thumb 1/4 oz. per lure give or take a little.

    Must be something wrong on my end . Won't let me click where it says photo files In the cube . After all these years I thought they might have gotten all the hinks out of the system .

    Don't see a price can't see a pic . Maybe a pm would help.
  9. Try Wolf manufacturing terminal tackle .
  10. Not unless you have a business permit or get it from China . Some fly shops might give you a break on a box. Might try Grandpa Bob's fly tying .
  11. Lat down a grip wrap on the hook shank going from head to point of hook and back to the head. Take 2 loose wraps while hair is in place . Pull tension on the thread and spread the hair around the hook shank with your index finger trying no to let loose of the hair . Pull tight and start wrapping back moving your fingers as you fell the thread make contact .Then add your chenille or whatever, finish out the jig.
  12. 21XDC I'll take a look at those. Thanks
  13. Thanks guys . I guess I,m still gonna have to pay the price since I don't have a tackle shop anymore or do production of lures as a business now .
  14. Just wondering if anyone has come up with an alternative to the WB400 wires or built a homemade bending system for them . Getting old and lazy and don't want to hand bend a bunch of them or pay the price. I can order bulk but 100,0000 for a thousand bucks but I wouldn't live long enough to use near that many .
  15. I just hang the heads in apple cider vinegar . Shiny and etched in a few hours.
