O.K. ....bought this one on Ebay.....

After 4 failed attempts at trying to make a brush....I gave up....If you see one similar to this on Ebay...or anywhere else...run like hell....its a piece of junk...poorly designed and does'nt work. :twisted:


So...I re-engineered it......

Image

I salvaged the spinning wheel (which is lop-sided...screwed up bearings) and some of the wood.....

Image

I added a spring tension hook which alloys the wire to spin and tighten up without immediately breaking like on the one I recieved....

Image

and added a fold down table area on which to lay the wire and material out...and fold down when its time to spin the wire....

Image

first try yielded this nice brush made of Puglisi fibers and some light blue DNA holofusion

Image

Which I used to tie this fly....

Image

I'm now happy.....you know what they say....if you want something done right....do it yourself :roll:

Good improvements there Tommy but I think the major factor was the number of Bud Lights you had applied to yourself but the end.
