Big eye jig mold

Rate this topic

10 posts in this topic

Anyone know where I can buy a jig mold like the jig below with barbs on the shank or a barb and wire on the shank, but no collar? Must include 1/2 oz - 1 oz or 1/2 oz - 1.5 oz, and have the big eye.

Not interested in making my own mold, want to buy one.

This one's in the ball park, not a total match. It is a do it mold.

Looked into that one in the past. Want the eye to be bigger and like double barbs. Not interested in modifying any mold.

I modified my Do-It flat head mold from having a collar to having dual barbs. And I had to “build up” material, not “remove” material for the eye socket. Wasn’t a pleasure to do by hand.

Used a needle file to modify the mold for the barbs. Tried using a Dremel for the barbs but it would travel and make a mess.

 

Used 15mm eyes. Would have used 17mm eyes but they encompassed the whole head.

Yes, if it’s the same person on eBay, I purchased what he calls an “Aspirin” head jig mold from him (see images below). Some would call it a “Barrel” head or “Cobia” style jig head. Certainly the aspirin jig I’m familiar with isn’t barrel shaped.

However, his molds are CNC machined, and when I contacted him with the specs of a jig I preferred with barbs and a big eye, he refused to accommodate me, stating the CNC setup time wasn’t worth it for the sake of one mold.

This is understandable but, how could he be certain others wouldn’t buy the style mold I spec’d out?

 

His molds are very pricey BTW.

Interesting.

In the few times over the many years that have not ben able to replicate a moulding profile exactly I have always gone to a particular place with an old profile and had them make a cutter(s) to cut that. I pay for the new cutter(s), on top of the material and the milling of said material, but don't own the cutters. However they now have those cutters with my name on them, and I can ask for something milled like that, and they can make it. 

Common practice in good sawmill/woodshops. I would have thought the same for jig moulds. But it sounds like nobody there knows how to program the cnc machine to make a different cut. Buncha smart guys with no applicable experience.

I have several molds from him and they work well. I’m looking for the same style you have with big eye but with a ball collar not barb. He has not responded to my email or questions through eBay so I assume he has no interest. Anyone else know a mold maker?
