I like that Maypol. I have lately been changing from hemeostats to my normal holders and back again, this should solve that. Thanks for a good simple solution. pete

Maypo,

You're a clever devil! Who'da thunk it? Hemostats and magnets!

It's a great setup.

If you make bigger baits, you can cut a couple of plywood wheels, mount them on your shaft, and suspend the baits between the wheels to dry them.

One other thing I am going to do is take a steel piece of bar approx 6" long, and install it vertical onto some sort of base and use this to hold the bait while airbrushing in the spray booth.

WayUpNorth36,

The magnets that I purchased from PapaJohnsToolbox were Rare Earth Magnets rated at 8 Lb Pull. These are very strong for their size. I dont think an ordinary magnet would hold the weight being cantilevered like this. I am not sure how heavy some of the Musky baits are, but I will run an experiment with this setup if you let me know. I purched 3-1/2" Hemostats, but I think for the larger baits you may want 5" long minimum. I kinda wish I had purchased 5" hemostats myself, but the 3-1/2" size seems to be working OK.

Hooked Solid,

If you are intested in building something very similar I can send you some sketches of the wood pieces I cut up. The whole thing is approx 36" long. The (2) vertical pieces are on 32" centers and if you look close at the photos you will see (2) eye hooks. I use these to hang the rack from floor joists in my shop.

Thanks

Maypo
