  1. There are hundreds of spinner bait blades in this lot from size 2.5-5 in gold and nickel willow leaf and Colorado. There are also around 80 #2 swivels and 80 or so beads in gold and nickel each I don't have a use for them any more so need to just sell them
  2. sorry guys. my spell check thing on my phone is kind of a pain I'm talking about the wire forms. for spinnerbaits
  3. sorry meant .040 wore forms not .045
  4. so been dabbling with building spinnerbaits. mainly use 1/2oz baits myself and have .035 wife forms. last time out caught some fish on one of my spinnerbaits and the wore form was bent up pretty good and was not a large fish by any means maybe 15". so do you all use heavier wire like .045 for your baits? just thought the .035 would be fine but now I'm wondering anyone got any ideas or tips for me?
  5. so where are you guys getting a decent powder paint gun?
  6. what I had thought of with a fluid bed was to cut slots on each side so the hook and wore form would slide into them and just dip the head only
  7. so how do you guys paint your spinnerbait heads? I am having a hard time figuring out a way to keep the pain off the wire form and the hook shank and just paint the head only. planning on building a fluid bed here in the very near future but right now don't have one just have the 2oz jars. anyone give me some ideas or pics would be a huge help
  8. I guess I haven't messed with it enough because I cannot get a consistent loop on the swivel end of my spinnerbait forms. I wasn't really wanting just a twisted loop like it does. was wanting more of just a closed loop and can not get it figured out at all
  9. so what former do you guys use for forming the ends on your spinnerbaits I bought a twistech and so far with using it some tonight I don't like it. wanting something to make a good loop end for the swivel on the top so what do you guys use
  10. what glue are you all using to glue your weed guards in your jig heads
  11. always fought with getting the powder paint out of the weed guard hole. and saw some talk of putting in Teflon bass pins in the hole while painting or backing the paint but haven't been able to find the Teflon pins. where are you all getting them
  12. who makes a good complete soft bait starter kit for a newbie been doing jigs and so on for a while and would like to try soft baits
  13. thats what i meant to say was Plaster of Paris....will it hold up to multiple baits? want something for more than just a few baits
  14. what i mean is is there a way to make a mold out of some type of material tha i have around my home or is easy to get? i have one bait that is no longer beng made and i love the way it works but i can no longer find them i know for soft plastics that you can make molds out of Paper Mache but was wondering if there is some way to copy a bait mold for lead. i wasnt sure due to the heat of them so thought i would ask here and see what you all thought
