hangers to balsa baits.
I use a 1/16 " x 1 1/4" 18-8 SS cotter pin.
I also use an egg sinker. The sinkers come
in many different sizes. Put the cotter pin
through the egg sinker ( no drilling required)
and bend it down into a "U" shape. Drill the
hole in the balsa deep enough to accept the
weight and cotter pin. Put some epoxy into
the hole and push the weight in just below
the edge of the hole. The epoxy will flow around
the "U" bend in the cotter pin holding it in.
Picture tells the story.
