Gama or Owner Hook for Do it Round ball jig mold

Recommended Posts

Hi all

Sorry if this a repeat.

Looking to get a 90 degree light wire hook from either Gama or Owner that will fit perfect or with minimal modification to the Do it round ball jig mold RHB-7-A. Any suggestions? ?

Thanks

Owner 5318 hooks will fit no mods. Gami  604 will fit in some cavities. Best way to get a good answer is to let us know what size hook you want to put in which size cavity. This way guys can check to see if the hook will fit

Didn't find any Gamis that would fit w/o mold mods. The Owner  5318 1/0 will not fit in any of the two sizes mentioned above. The Owner 5318 #1 hook will fit the 1/16 oz cavity w/o mods. The #1 hook will not fit the 1/32 oz cavity due to the hook eyelet being too long and the hook bend hits the boss in the mold when it closes. The hook eye can be extended in the mold with a file. The boss on the bottom of the mold can also be filed down flush and removed. If you need clarification, let me know. I will attach some pics here.

Thank you cadman. If you do have pics available and not to much trouble I'd very much appreciate posting the pics.

I don't want to ruin the mold modifying any wrong area

Attached is a pic of the round ball jig mold RHB-7-A. The hooks that are in there are Owner 5318 #1 . As you can see by the pic, the #1 hook fits the 1/16 oz cavity fine at the top by the hook eye. However, it bridges the boss at the hook bend. With the hook this way at the bottom, the mold will not close tightly and you will get a lot of flash. The solution to this is to remove that material on both sides of the mold. Now my mold is older, maybe your mold doesn't have this. If that is the case then there is no issue there. On the 1/32 oz head, you have a problem at the hook eye, where if you put the hook eye in the cavity where it is supposed to be, your hook shank will butt against the mold. This will give you incomplete pours, so you have to center the hook shank in the cavity. By doing this, you will see that the hook eye has moved. You will need to remove the mold material here on both halves so the hook eye is flush with both sides of the mold in order to close completely.  Now at the bottom you have the same issue as the 1/16 hook has and the mat'l needs to be removed here as well. Hope this helps.
