How can I change hook size in a do-it mold

Recommended Posts

I would like to change the size of the hook in a jig mold. Most of the are up to 3/0. I would like to take them up to 4/0-5/0. Any ideas.

Dremel tool and small ball bits. Take your time and take a little at a time off.

Usually you can go up or down one size on a Do-It mold. If you need to go really big, take the hook place it in the mold, close the mold and lightly tap the mold with a hammer. This will give you an impression on the mold halves on where you need to cut. The you can use a Dremel as mentioned above or a hand file. The mold is alum. and soft, so go slow and steady.
