  1. C-Bore and Thru holes detail.
  2. Material: 1. Hard wood handle is salvaged from a broken rubber mallet. I knew I saved this for a reason. 2. 1/8 Hard stainless wire .o62 with loop. This was purchased but not used because it was too hard for a thru wire lure construction (cost .99C). Process: 1. 1/4" Counter bore 5/16" deep. 2. .0627 holes 2ea spaced as shown. 3. Cut handle to desired length. I cut mine to allow material to extend past my hand on both sides when held. 4. Insert SS wire and trim to fit mold; then smooth cut end. 5. Wire is held securely with friction. If wire is ever needed to be replaced just push out the old one and replace with a new one.

  5. Fly drying motor

    This motor is the one I use for fly tying. 5 to 6 RPM is a perfect turning speed with enough torque to turn flies. https://m.ebay.com/itm/New-Stock-Synchronous-Synchron-Motor-50-60Hz-AC-110V-4W-5-6RPM-CCW-CW-J96J-/262352585850

    Nice Mold is that your design? Do you mold in SS wire or sinker eyelets?
  7. I recall reading certain colors signified they were a better grade and suitable for production. Colors were Green, Red & Blue: Does anyone know which color was considered the best? Color coding is not done any more as they are all painted black.
  8. Help With DYI Pull Pin For Egg Sinker Mold

    Cadman thanks for the info. I got a new old stock mold that didn't have a pull pin (thanks for size). These will not need to be painted but it's good info if I decide to use molds that do.
  9. Help With DYI Pull Pin For Egg Sinker Mold

    Agree, stainless should keep it's shape and remain smooth. Didn't know to use oil, definitely cheaper than drop out. Thanks for the tip.
  10. Mold: Do-It EG-5-LA Egg Sinker I never used a pull pin before and need to make one for this mold that I just purchased. What is material of choice and size wire to use to make pull pins from? I plan on coating pin with drop out to prevent sticking in the mold.

    I remember those.... soft baits with 3 blades and a tapered cylinder on top. You're right a helicopter would work.... how about this. Attach a wire to the tail of the lure, thread a helicopter on, next put a bead on and bend the wire over. The wire would act like an axial and the Helicopter would spin.
