screw eyes

4 posts in this topic

Hey I have a pretty dumb question....but I dont really have any concept of diameter.

I make bass swim baits roughly 4 - 5 inches in length and would like a screw eye that can be used as a hinge, line tie and hook hanger....What would be a good diameter? Does it matter what material I would use? (SS, brass etc. for bass)

Thanks

Go to :-:-: Lure Making :-:-: The Official LureMaking.com Website | Tackle Components | Lure Components | Lure Making Information | Lure Making Supplies they sell guite a few different sizes (lengths) both open and closed eyes. Also do a search in the forums should be quite abit of info on sizes for different baits depending on type of wood,thickness,angle ,on and on it goes lol. Some of the guys will even secure the screws with epoxy. Hope this helps Jimbo

I use SST screw eyes, .072 gauge, from Stamina. I use both the 7/8" and the 1 1/8".
