I have been looking for cup washers that were used for lures that were made in the early 1900's. They are like a cup washer, but the inner portion is cylindrical and the only thing that is seen is the screw eye and the rim of the washer. You see them in the early Heddon and Shakesphere lures. I don't know what they are called. If anyone knows what these washers are and where I can get them, I would greatly appreciate it. I have been making some replica lures of the oldies but goodies, and these washers would greatly enhance the lures. Thank you for your time. :

old wooden Bomber??

The closest thing I've found is a grommet. You can get various sizes of small ones in the Notions section of a fabric store. They should have brass ones and painted ones. You can see a grommet in this picture:

Try www.luremaking.com, Steve has cup washers. Also try Moore's lures, not sure of the web addy though.

Jann's Netcraft has them. You can also find them at Hobby Lobby and other craft stores. They are sold as shoe eyelets.

Thank you guys. I picked some up at the local A.C. Moore Arts and Crafts store. Those were exactly what I was looking for.
I had all the tackle making catalogs at one time, but my wife went on one of her cleaning sprees because of the holidays, and, of course, they were deleted from this household. I nicely told her, "DO NOT TOUCH ANY OF MY FISHING THINGS IN THIS HOUSE UNLESS OKAYED, PLEEEEEASE!!!!" I think that when I get my supply catalogs stocked up again, I will make a storage unit and put them in there, downstairs in my workshop. She doesn't go down there very often. But, I will lock them up anyway.
Again guys, Thanks for the help.
