  1. A 5oz bird cannot carry a 1lb coconut!
  2. Heavy wire version of my swim jig head and a head I am switching barb/collar on. Allen
  3. Slightly bending them or my fingernail has been working for years. Allen

    Custom hook?

    I know you have them on speed dial for hooks. Tell them to make me a 29 degree straight eye hook in .052 -.055 with a limerick bend in black nickel (I will give them the exact specs). Allen

    Custom hook?

    I can't be the first guy to try this? Allen

    Custom hook?

    Can one of your boys Valentín and François at VMC make them for me. Allen

    Custom hook?

    Just purchased 56k hooks last week so I am fine if I have to buy 10k of them. Allen

    Custom hook?

    Anyone have any contact about getting a custom hook made? Gamakatsu, Eagle Claw, or VMC would work since I like all three of those. Allen
  9. Make sure they fit prior to buying a lot of them. They have a shorter eye leg than most hooks from what I remember. Allen
  10. https://barlowstackle.com/Mustad-Jig-Hooks-Style-32833NP-BN-P394/ These should work but I don't know what size you need? Allen
  11. Have you checked with Zorn? Since he makes the molds he should be able to tell you if any are for sale? Allen
  12. Fishingskirts.com has the best price for rattles that I have found. Allen
  13. Won't they cool down to fast to paint? Right now I am using a heat gun then throwing them into a bowl of water. After the bowl is full I inspect, punch out powder from the eyes if necessary then bake. I can get 78 Ned heads into my toaster oven at once so I am buying a second one to help. Allen
  14. Trying to figure the same thing out? I have to paint about 400 jigs right now and it is slowing down production. Buying at least one more toaster over which will help. Allen
  15. I know about 5 people that make spincast molds and they are all too busy with their own stuff. Maybe in a couple of months I can help you out but I just got my setup so I am learning how to make the molds. Making a mold is easy but getting them to work correctly is a pain. Have you tried Cast Industries or Tight Line Angler? Allen
  16. I tried modeling clay and could not get it to work right. Years ago I carved a spinnerbait head out of wood, cleared it then made a 2 piece silicone mold. That mold I used to pour some Alumilite resin in because it would handle vulcanization. Never had a lead head made because I decided on something else. This winter I will be making a spinnerbait head from a small JDM crankbait as the base for the body. Busy trying to learn spincasting right now so I don't have time to mess with it. Allen
  17. Made another Ned head mold yesterday and was able to get 33 cavities in a 9" mold. With this machine I can pour more heads in 5 minutes than an hour of hand pouring. Allen
  18. Here is what the tube heads look like coming out of the mold. Since the sprues are so small the heads either just fall off or the twist off very easy. Allen
  19. Mustang wire is what I think you are looking for. Cadman posted the link above. Allen
  20. Next time I cast I will post a picture of what it looks like. Every time you cast you end up with a wheel that looks like a bicycle crank. The heads break off with minimal twisting and you then just throw the bicycle lead crank back into the pot. Allen
  21. They sell silicone discs made for spincasting. Look up Contenti, white metal casting is where they list the mold supplies. Allen
  22. A buddy of mine ask me to start making these since Gopher went out of business like 5 years ago. I bought a spincast setup to be able to make whatever I want. Figured I would help recoup some of my costs by making things like this. Allen
  23. Just finished it yesterday, pours 1/32 and 1/16oz. Allen
