What it that little metal device that I see a lot of people holding their lure with? It looks like it clamps on to the screw eye.

if you mean for painting, it's most likely an exacto knife handle that you're seeing. I use hemostats myself.

I was thinking it might be an exacto blade holder or some type of small hiand pin drill, I never thought of hemostats.

This my first post so bare with me. What I used was a grounding strip from a electrical panel. I mounted these in the top, sides and bottom of my homemade spray booth. I then used heavy copper wire with various clamps that I mounted to the heavy wire. the other end i placed into the ground strip and tightened the wire with the screws in the strip. I can now bend the copper wire to any desired position and spray away I have pictures if this will help. I just love this site and I'm doing a lot of searching and learning a lot from the experts.

I use hemostats for baits w/o bill. On jointed baits, I use heavy Cu wire (like 10 ga.) to bridge the lure and add tension.
I hold my baits in wooden clothes pins with the bill or hemostats. I also use wooden clothes pins mounted on a dowel in my "turner." The clothes pins can be glued anywhere (to wood). I can use the hemostats in the turner as well. Crude is beautiful!
