JANES CRAFT SELECTION


Little Blue bender is just that a bender and does a good job but not my choice for making spinner baits or barrel ends because its not made for that. It just does nice bends but not barrel wraps…for lures…


The NetCraft Tack-L-Tool is one of the least expensive barrel turners on the market  but you must have patience as it requires a learning curve and a lot of it is manually done.

It is available in two levels…. Just the tool itself and you can watch the videos by one owner on the youtube channels and he makes it look simple.

The second version comes with all you need, the tool, a great book with tips and ideas wire and the book alone is worth the   difference.  It will handle most wire gauges in the spinner baits from crappie to good sized saltwater behemoth.



This small pocket sized tool ( Simply called a Wire Former) is just that a small pocket sized tools for barrel wraps in the small sizes only topping out at .024.  This handy wire forming tool makes every bend and eye needed for spinners and spinner parts. “ How To” directions included.  Again Wire forming tool bends .024” wire and smaller. Not made for bigger gauges…
