O-ring

11 posts in this topic

I stopped by the local hardware store the other day looking for some o-rings to use to rig worms wacky style. I found some in the plumbing isle that fit real well, but I can only buy one O-ring per pack.

What do you guys use and where do you buy them?

I just bought some o-rings last week and couldnt' find the right size in multi-packs at Men. but I did find what I needed at Home Dep. They're usually in the same area, but not necessarily on the same rack as the single packs. I had a hard time at first as well, but after some careful scanning I found what I was looking for. What size did you find that you liked? I think I may have bought mine a little too small. Can't remember the size off hand but I'll look tonight.

the big store in rogers has them for wacky rigging and so does the place on rice and 36. They come in a pack of about 20 i believe...

I picked some up this weekend paid $5 I mainly just wanted the tool that came with it. The guy at the store told me he uses the smallest zip ties he can find and then just clips off the end with the needle nose. The guy said you can pick up 50 of them for what it would cost to buy the kit his store was selling I think I only got 10 washers. Anyone tried the mini zip ties.

Thing about it...do zip ties give? NO

so then you get more break offs cause the senko gets cut into by the zip tie and gets weakened.

I dont even use an o-ring tool, I spread them with my pliers and pull the senko through. My 11 year old can do this in like 3 seconds even.

I think I paid 5 dollars for 500 rubber orings shipped off of e-bayX

I use the zip-ties all the time, had no problems with break offs and you can pick up a pak of 50+ @ Wallyworld.

I use the clear tiny rubber bands that my daughter has for her braces. They come in an assortment of colors. I'm sure you could go to any orthodontist office and buy some. They might even give them to you.

Those work great to keep crankbait hooks together so they dont get tagled in tackle boxes too.

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
