    Update: Loving the Danville flat waxed thread and new ceramic bobbin. Thanks again everyone!

    Bucktails

    Yes I’m tying on trebles. 4,6,8. And what you said makes perfect sense. I was holding the clump too far back and wrapping to tight on the first wrap. Thanks everyone for the help! Also I’m loving the Danville flat waxed thread. I’ll never go back to GSP.
  3. When I lay my hair down and start to wrap the thread, on my first wrap the hair wants to wrap around with the thread. Is there a technique to avoid the movement with the hair? Should I wrap just the hair once or twice before wrapping it to the hook? Tying bucktails btw.

    Would a couple wraps around the hair itself help? Before I wrap it to the hook.

    That’s what I do. My problem is when I lay that 1/3 down and do my first wrap around the hair, the hair tends to slide over around the shank as I wrap the thread around. Just talking the first wrap.

    When tying bucktails for my spinners....how do I keep my deer hair from “wrapping” around the hook shank when I lay it down and do my first thread wrap? It always moves with my thread.

    Thanks for the advice! I will do that. I have a ceramic insert bobbin on the way too so I should be set. I think my current bobbin is burred which is causing my problem. As always great info on here. Ty.

    You are correct. It’s GSP 200 from Jann’s. I had to poke through the tip of the bobbin with a needle to get the buildup out. I just have a thumb bobbin from Jann’s but will be ordering a ceramic tip soon. Hopefully that will solve my problem. If not I guess I’ll try a different thread like nylon or UTC maybe? Thanks!

    Thread

    Been tying my own bucktails for a bit. Question is: I’m getting a lot of build up around the opening of my bobbin. I’m using GSP 210. Should I go to a UTC ultra or Danville flat waxed, stay with what I’m using? I will be ordering a ceramic tip bobbin soon so that might help also. Any suggestions are much appreciated.
  12. Nice work on those blades too btw.
  13. Sounds good. I really appreciate your help!
  14. Ok, I’ve got what I need to make the fluid bed. So if I have this right, I heat the blade with a heat gun, dip into chosen paint/paints, apply dots, stripes or whatever with a template, allow to dry and cure in the oven at 375 degrees for 20 mins? Am I missing anything?
