"ED"'s Activity

  1. "ED" added a topic in On The Workbench   

    Battery cables, plug wires, radiator overflow lines, metal fuel line
    All of these materials are used to tie flies.
    Equipment: Micro-tubing, small wire or ultra wire, head cement or epoxy,needle, portable fire(lighter), paint of your choice, lead wire. This is my first thread, so I am open to suggestion and thanks for looking.

    1. Insert small wire into microtubing, cut to size and paint.
    2. Use needle to "melt" a hole into piece you are working on and insert tubing.
    3. use head cement to glue in place and presto!

    The needle can be cut and used as fuel line. it is also bendable and rigid. Hope this helps.
    Try and be easy with my work! Havent built since I was a kid! Got back into it after Iraq. God bless.

    the wire gives rigidity to the tubing, allowing you to shape the subject to you liking and keeps it where you want it.
