  1. Here is what I measure them at... 1/8 - 0.117 5/32 - 0.154 3/16 - 0.180 7/32 - 0.215 1/4 - 0.233 9/32 - 0.276 5/16 - 0.292 3/8 - 0.363 7/16 - 0.434 1/2 - 0.481 9/16 - 0.555 5/8 - 0.633 These are my approximate measurements. All measured with calipers...not converted from fractions. Since I do not order them I do not know what the MEY of each is. JB
  2. I do not have one of the washers here to measure but I know they are very, very small. Maybe these? JB
  3. I use an exacto knife just like dlaery suggested. Tried lots of things but none seem to work as well. JB
  4. As cadman suggested the Mustad 32824 is a good hook and it does fit but it is tight in a couple of cavities and really does not sit perfectly straight. You may have to modify the mold for a better fit. The mold I tried did close but it was a close fit. Another option would be the VMC 7150 but it is a smaller diameter wire so you may have seepage around the eye and where the hook exits the mold. It did fit and the mold did close. Jon Barlow
  5. Which mold do you have??
  6. I always recommend Gel Super Glue.
  7. We did a special order for them but we decided not to re-order. I do not now if Eagle Claw still making them. As for comparing them to the 32786 they really do not compare. The 32786 is a 60 degree hook and the 635 is a 90 degree hook so the are usually not interchangeable. Jon Barlow
  8. I figured he was molding them that way so he could get the blade arm of the wire farther out from the mold without bending it. I have done that from time to time when I wanted to set the hook further down in the mold so it sticks out more.
  9. Your options are limited. That is the old style of mold so you will probably be best to dremel out a slot for the hook point to fit in the mold. Either that or bend the wires. You can see how the newer molds have the aluminum removed so the hooks will fit.
  10. Maybe this will help out a little... These are ones I have tested and found the fit acceptable.

    VMC 7147BN

    The VMC 7147 will fit in this mold.
  12. Be careful when using size charts. Not all companies use the same size charts. The blade manufacturers do not have a standard when it comes to sizing. A size 6 from one manufacturer may not be the same length as a size 6 from a different manufacturer or company.
  13. Try these... https://www.cncmolds.com/webstore/ http://www.pouritmold.com/
  14. To the best of my knowledge the patent on these blades expired a number of years ago. The blades I have in stock no longer carry a patent number.
  15. Buy the black nickel blades. Spike It will work but it too will wear off.
