    I added up one years loss of spinners one year, just over $50. I have had worse years. LOL. I have to admit though, savings is not why I bought it, especially when you add in the clamp accessory. I did win this years trout camp, catch the biggest fish with your concocted spinner contest for $40.00 though.

    I bet with a little ingenuity you could make the tool.

    U dont need the wire former. Buy a pair of rounded pliers and bend it by hand. It's not hard at all. I do all mine by hand and have yet to use the proper tool to form it

    Yep. It's easy enough that I've made them up on the commode. Beats looking at a phone.

    Don't make my own but a fella in MC did and they're great, spin on a VERY slow retrieve. Better then any mepps, panther Martin or any others and only a 1$ at that !

    Not always but usually. Either a magazine or febreeze labeling.

    I was making bucktails and the urge to purge hit. I was in a time crunch so multi-tasked.

    Better not forget which hand has the sharp tri-pointy thing. A 4/0 treble covered with white marabou could look like a wad of TP, but it sure won’t feel the same back there.

    Think I need to make the groove a little deeper but not for about 5 minutes with a grinder. 20191030_140558.jpeg 20191030_140705.jpeg 20191030_140959.jpeg

    Worked better with a small counterbore but I need thicker material. I broke it.[​IMG][​IMG]
