FenderBender (3/28/2010)Another question....

Is there any reason why a small stainless steel washer wouldn't work in the place of a solid ring in the making of assist hooks? I've been making hook setups and by far the most expensive component of the jig is the $5 for a pack of 7 Owner Split and Solid rings.
I don't use owner solid rings because they are stamped and sharp on one edge. That will cost you a good fish after a decent fight. I use solid welded rings and heavy duty split rings. Yes the rings are expensive but not as expensive as if you were buying a Shimano jig and having tio rig it too.

Don'sBayou (3/28/2010)It can be stainless and still slightly magnetic. Only the highest grade of stainless ( Naval stuff) won't be magnetic.
or food grade....I just tried putting the two blades together....well a handle and a blade that seem to look good and weigh twice as much....just need to figure how to attach them...I'll try tiging them or even spot weld with stick...tig would be the best.... if the metals compadable

This might even give it better action with the change in surfaces

Oh FenderBender.....you've created a monster:doh...thanks!!!again GREAT post







Bill, I just need a few to be able to eat dinner with. Think you can bring me some.:poke
