  1. make your own. sounds smart assed, but its probably the best way. Realistically, the first one I made was a daunting task, took about 2 hours, After making the first one, others take 25 to 45 minutes, There is a post buried somewhere in the archives I used the information made mine from some 1/2" thick 1 1/2" wide aluminum plate. And have two bending arms, lay my wire in, get it oriented, Bend the first end, then the second and remove from bender. I made mine for the 3 sizes of CC forms I use. I also made one for the tail spin mold

    Pompano jig mold

    you may want to call Ace Hand molds http://www.smacktackle.com/acehandmolds.html
  3. Rather than chance it, I just bought a new pot and stopper rod. Its about a 10 minute change over and no worries
  4. Windshield washer fluid works well for me. Gallon jug less than 3 bucks and no ammonia Used to add alcohol 25% but did not see a difference. Some of the off brand acrylics I will add a couple drops of dawn detergent, . Ive started a final rinse using lacqure thinner and no dirty gun since
  5. raw blanks I wash with dawn detergent and hot water, quick rinsne them never touch. glove may help but touching or even sneezing can leave some oils that are hard to remove. I have used fish eye eliminator from auto paint store with success and you can get a spray oil and silicone remover spray and clean with that. Both work but are expensive
  6. Ive used a number of automotive clear poly urethanes but usually use diamond clear I do my own, use automive clears when a buddy can spare a couple ounces. they have limited shelf life once opened. If you are painting, the Diamond clear is a good option to try, Sorry I only paint my own
  7. Not suire if your reel is in this list https://www.reelschematic.com/reel-schematics/shakespeare-reel-schematics/shakespeare-spin-spincast-schematics/#gsc.tab=0 then my favorite source http://schematics.mikesreelrepair.com/thumbnails.php?album=24
  8. Figure out the wire size of the desired hook and use that to select your bit.. Just go a tad smaller than the wire
  9. Ive bought from these guys https://www.ebay.com/itm/Glass-Worm-Jig-Fly-Rattles-5-MM-x-16-MM-50-Rattles-ship-from-Ohio/172120485029?hash=item28132e2ca5%3Ag%3AdmMAAOSwzgRW104x&_sacat=0&_nkw=glassrattles&_from=R40&rt=nc&LH_TitleDesc=0|0 and for large qty, https://www.ebay.com/itm/50-100-Worm-Jig-Fishing-Lure-Glass-Rattles-Insert-Tube-Rattles-Shake-Attract-Fly/331756317251?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D52885%26meid%3Dacc527b4ea3c4caeb4b98ca2571baedd%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D6%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D132701904374%26itm%3D331756317251&_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851

    Jig mold suppliers

    I ran across these guys a while back, bought one of their Blade bait molds and was very pleased. a bit pricy, but well worth it. https://m.facebook.com/Thirdcoastmolds2017/

    Which Lee Pot

    even better a new pot and plunger about 20 minutes and you are back to like new condition. you may want to drain and clean your pot, use some valve lapping compound and lap the seat, keep mine going for a long time, I still have the one I bought in 1978 and it works great with very few drips.
  12. Very similar to do its trokar jig
  13. good idea, ive used those quite a bit but finally settled on 2 15 watt appliance bulbs. gives a nice 95 degrees and added benefit of some light
  14. Its a linen fabric of some sort, it was sold as a backing for drapes. I bout a remnant 4 yards 54" wide and used to have the number and when I tried researching it, it was discontinued and the number was a hobby lobby internal number. Ive played with ballistic nylon and they work but I like the linen the best
  15. Ive tried a lot of media for the filters and since cups are so inexpensive to make, decided on a fabric from hobby lobby. a couple yards of it and I will never run out. I cut it it in 3 1/2" wide strips and glue a dozen or so cups to the strip, clamp it let it set and next day, cut them apart, trim the edges and got a new supply of cups. a 10ft piece of pvc gives me 40 cups (i cut to 2 7/8 long which for me is the ideal length. I usually work with 1/8 or smaller jigs. I have some very nice filter cloth but it gets pricy and in reality did not notice that much difference. So I played with different fabrics until I found one that works.
