I get 90% of my lure making supplies for luremaking.com but I find they don't carry the exact screw eyes (length/dia) that I want and just found that they have discontinued some of what I had used/bought before.
Hagens has the best choice but want you to but 1000 min and since I use 4 different I find having 4000 eye screws a bit too much.
Would you guys (and gals) mind sharing where you get your eye screws from for me please.
Thanks and yes I hate you all too

Type in another word like (Tackle ) in Google with those names and you will find what you need.

I thought Hagen's will do less than minimum, you just have to pay a little extra. It's in multiple places in their catalog (eg: pg70, yellow dot in the top right corner).

Also mailorder my components from Welcome to Moore's Lures , I suppose , it's a smaller business run by Dick Moore in Wisconsin . He stocks a large variety of screweyes , and they are all made of stainless steel(I had brass eyes of other suppliers twisted off in hardwood) .
You can download the catalog on his site , if you need advice about his components , you may also call , he is a friendly guy to talk to .

I'm working on a deal to start stocking the supply shop with everything needed for our lurebuilders on this site. If there is something you would like to see stocked in the store just send me a message and I will work on supplying it.

I just went to Moore's Lures to order up some eye screws and noticed they too have a minimum order or 500 eye screws one size.
Althought hey have n stock what I want/need I'm just not big enough to order 1000 eye screws.
Too bad I liked what they stocked.

I get my screw eyes from heb manufactureing. They have a 60 dollar min per size.My last order was 1.5 inch .072 and 1 inch .092 2000 of each and my total bill was $268 shipped

I don't understand this , in "Moore's Lures" catalog is stated , that they offer special rebates for items ordered in larger amounts , smaller amounts would be charged the full catalog prize .
I never purchased screw-eyes there more than 150 pieces per size , most likely far less than 100 pcs. , in the catalog they are sold per 10 pcs. minimum .
Are we even talking about the same supplier , from Woodruff/Wisconsin ?

If you received your Hagen's Catalog, read the first page titled, "Order Information." In the center column, about center of the page, there is a section titled, "Minimum Orders." It states and I quote,
"Minimum order quantities are listed with each product in our catalog. An additional charge of $1.00 per order line item will be charged for less than minimum quantities.
Example: Colorado 2 nickel spinner blade Catalog cost $17.60 per 1000.
The price for 100 would be $1.76 plus $1.00 for being under the 500 piece minimum. The total cost for 100 Colorado 2 nickel spinner blades would be $2.76.
Due to the cost of handling, any orders less than $50.00 would be subject to a $5.00 handling fee."
If all you ordered for that ticket was just 100 Colorado 2 nickel spinner blades at a cost of
You would still need to add a shipping cost. But you don't have to buy 1000 or 500 of an item Minimum.
Hope this clears up some of the confusion on this issue.

On sheet 2 of Moore's catalog there is a box which states min orders of certain items, including eye screws. I did not find any details on ordering less than stated amounts.
I fired off an email for further explanations/instructions.

Eye screws (sizes) and good split rings tend to be the tougher items to get.
