Cotter Pins

3 posts in this topic

I found a box of various sized cotter pins in my garage and thinking how i could imcorporate them in to my wooden swimbaits. I was thinking

Of using them as part of a pin hinge or for hook hangers. Does anyone here use them, if so how do you secure them.

I used them once. I found instructions on this site. I used a rotary tool to put little indentations on the shafts (horizontal) and epoxied them in to the hole. They worked ok. If you dont like hook hangers you can load your treble on them before you epoxy them in.

I use them just as sonny said press or cut some slots in them. I do this with a pair of side cutters just press a few slots in and epoxy. P.S. clamp the end of the shank with vise grips before you do i that way the pin wont twist or deform the shank.
