I want to buy a variety of spinner stuff to make my own, my question is i have a bunch of the straight wires with 1 round eye on the end, how do i make a nice clean round eye on the other end and wrap the wire around itself so it doesnt look messy.. is there some sort of jig out there or is there something you can make yourself

The ones i make now are the simple colorado's with the 2 split rings 2 swivels pretty simple stuff but i want to make some fancy spinners to try !!!

Thanks

round jaw needle nose pliers will do the job. Princess Auto has a hobby kit with small needle nose, flat jaw, regular needle nose pliers and a couple different cutters for about $15.

Yeh to be honest the tool is not great
i have lots of pliers (handy man\ex electrician)and they work fine
if you have a work bench with a good vise (not a fly tying vise) and insert a nail you can bend the wire around this
Its great to experiment with different beads
you can also use the plastic blade holders that go directly on your line this way you can switch blades and beads to suit conditions
