.051" Wire Twister For Buctails

10 posts in this topic

I made this simple little tool to make the final neat twist for the .051" wire and is slim enough to do the final loop

I start my loop with the Knipex round nose pliers

Than I insert the wire in the Jig and use lineman's electrician plier to twist the wire

 

How to make the Jig

 

need  a piece of 1/4 stock by 1.0 or 1.5 inches and around 4 inches long by 1/4 inches thick

Drill press

10-32 tap and matching drill

Cut the slot first ( I use a hacksaw and finish up with Dremel tool)

Last drill and tap the screw hole

use a s/s 10-32 bolt about 1 inch long cut the head off and notch the very end of the bolt

Note  the notch traps the wire

Added the eye loop bender in conjunction with the wire Jig, eliminating the round nose pliers. Muskie bucktail .051 wire easily done, save on the fingers to push and bend the wire

Hey Gino, excellent tool and tutorial. Would you like a cad file of this? Pm me and I can send you one, as it might be easier to post your great idea.

Thanks Cadman , I am not sure I would know how to use a cad file

Gino,

    I would give you a build drawing so you can have all the dimensions that you could disperse to anyone that requested it. I would give you a PDF of it. I see you are in Glen Ellyn Illinois, I live in Libertyville, IL. Do you have a phone number I can call you?

Nice tool Gino.

Do you also use a different tool for the hook or just form another loop with this tool and attach it with a split ring?
