Shakey Head Mold

Recommended Posts

I'm sure this has been asked, before, but.....

 

I want to pour some shakey heads that utilize a barbed collar and flat eye hook.  It doesn't appear Do-It makes such a mold.  What's involved with modifying one of their molds to accept a flat eye hook?

Drill out he hook eye socket to fit your hook then fill it in with RTV silicone so you won't have flash.

Which mold (model number) are you looking to modify? Like Jig Man stated, however make sure you measure twice and drill once,

Thank you smalljaw.  This site has so many talented, experienced individuals.

Greg,

   If you are looking to put in a screwlok in that head? That is possible with the mold Small jaw suggested. Below is a pic

Had not planned on adding a screwlok.  I'm not fond of them; because, I find them difficult to "center" in the worm.

However, I borrowed a weighted, swimbait hook from a friend of mine, recently; and, the screwlok device actually incorporated a "centering" pin that was nothing more than an extension of the screwlok that protruded beyond the coils and could be stuck into the center of the worm, swimbait, etc. prior to threading the bait on to the screwlok.  Have you seen these?  If so, where could I purchase them?

I assume you are referring to these. See the pic below. The two on the right with the centering pin. They are made and sold by Owner. However if you don't want to pay the exorbitant price, PM me.
