putting a coilform on a snootie is actually pretty easy and does not hurt the mold
shakybass on ebay sells 3 sizes of coil forms, the smallest of which is 1/8" diameter, the same as the weed guard pin
I just turned down the last 1/4" or so of a 1/8" pin to fit inside the coil form to keep the lead out and it casted just fine with no further mold mods

Welcome aboard the Do-It forums mkg! That's a slick mod for casting those springs. I like the concept.

Doubtful that you are a true newb with that as your first post, mkg, but welcome to the forum.

That looks great! I’m intending to use it as a jighead w/a spring lock keeper though.

Yea, I've been reading you guys stuff for a while now,
Gotten some good ideas
Thought I'd share my latest project
I like using the 5/8 oz snootie for flipping, but sometimes wish it were heavier
so I made my own 1oz and 1 1/4oz snootie style jigs
These were poured from a bondo mold over a 7/0 Mustad flipping hook
Time for testing, the ice is gone
