Twistech Wire Former

Twistech Wire Former

The TwisTech is a high quality, versatile tackle-making tool for building spinners, spreaders, bottom-walkers, spinner-bait forms, and most other wire-based tackle items requiring rounded bends and tightly wrapped eyes. There is virtually no length limit to the wire forms that can be made with the TwisTech because, unlike many other tackle makers, the item being formed is kept outside of the tool’s frame. It can handle stainless steel spring wire up to 0.037 diameter with its machined solid aluminum frame and steel components. An adapter is available for wire up to 0.041". The TwistTech wire former may be bench mounted with the screws provided or a table top clamp mount accessory is available. The clamp opens to 2". Mounting screws are provided witht he clamp.

The TwisTech wire former and tackle-maker can easily accommodate hooks, split-rings, or swivels in the loop wrapping process making this a very versatile tool for the serious lure maker yet simple enough for even the occasional tackle hobbyist. It has proven to be such a durable and reliable wire former that even commercial tackle manufacturers use it in everyday production.

Twist Tech
Well I got the tool. Very good only trouble is I wished it would handle bigger dia. wire 051.  It does do pretty large loops no good for small lures. Could have a bit of work done with it. Simple to use took about 10m to work out.

Loops too large
The size loop you get with this wire former is fine for larger spinners, but larger than I like for smaller ones, it is much larger than the ones on the smaller factory made spinners. The tool works well and makes a very professional looking  loop.
