What is the best wire to use?

Post by DalbyKayakin » Thu Jan 26, 2012 1:50 pm

I havent had a crack at them screw-in eyelets, I've always bent wire around and around and glued it into my timber lures but it's not very productive since it takes a bit to get it the way i want it and even then they're all different. whats the best wire to use that's easy to work with and is there an easy way to just make a jig and bend it around a nail or something or should i just get these screw-in eyelets from somewhere? Oh and also where do i get these screw-in eyelets?

I use a cordless drill to twist my eyelets.You need a rivert bent at 90degress then a pair of pliers and off ya go can crack out a few when sitting in front of the tv on a nite.You can use stainless steel leader wire or you can use stainless tig wire from a welding supply shop.

I buy my eyescrews here , ......Mr. Moore often has better prices and better shipping rates compared to the big mail order stores , he is also a nice guy to talk to on the phone , if you should have any questions ,......not as unpersonal like contacting the big stores .
