|One need to pay dues where & when needed & this is one of those moments.
When I read the thread some time ago & saw the gadget, I knew Willem had something going here.
Pottie as I know him, aka "Willem Wikkel Spies" (still need to hear the true story behind that name) had made a DIY gadget to simplify the whole process of turning stainless steel wire to make up a non-return bait clip/slide & having a free hand if needed.
He continued to describe in detail how he made the little gadget from start to finish, with clear explanation & reason of each part on the jig.
This interested me, & yes I know there are literally a few methods in achieving the same result, but if you have this gadget in your man cave clamped down on your work bench & have actually tried & tested it, then you will realise & understand that this little tool is a DIY tool made to make your effort easy peasy.
Many members/anglers might say, ja ja, its just another gadget, piece of metal, or try this way or my method.....but once you have actually put the gadget thru its paces, you will agree how helpfull it actually is.
So, Pottie, ek weet ons het al baie gechat, maar n man moet dankie sè op die regte plek ook.... baie dankie mater, ek het hom ontvang, hom so n ligte skuur gegee & getoets......Hy werk 100% bedonnerd & hy gaan my werk baie ligter maak.
Hy het n ere plek in my motorhuis saam my ander gadgets.
Welgedaan Pottie.....net n kranige hengelaar wat met so n vernuftige idee vorendag kan kom......mana aan jou.
"Made by an angler......for anglers"
