Thru Wire Former

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

I am a little bit laizy for not using the search option but I have 1 question

Is there on the market an universal "thru wire former"?

The main idea is that I want it to be configured to different dimensions for different lure types. I can do the nails on wood method but this implies using such a board for each lure independently. I want to use the thru wire configurations in two part molds for pouring urethane.

Thanks,

Marius

Consider making an adjustable 'nail' block. Should not be difficult.

yes , this should be easy, basically the lures are not so huge and I use 3 eyes for each, so you can start with 3 nails on 3 different metal boards interconnected with screws , a longer lure will require unscrewing the front and back eye-nails boards from the middle (of course the front will be closer to the middle board than the back) but, and there is a but , you still have to manually wrap around the wire , this leading space for imperfections

A cribbage board might work. ;)

Seriously, if you are only doing three or four different baits, you could do the appropriate hole patterns in a flat piece of hardwood, and just label which holes are for which bait.

Basically, you wind up with a T shaped hole pattern, with the top of the T, the center line of the bait, having a series of holes for the line tie and the rear hook hanger, and the leg of the T having a series of holes for the belly hanger(s).

I would probably use PVC, because that's what I have available.

Any material that's hard enough to keep the holes from getting too sloppy.
