If you are talking about the glass beads that you can add to your line, they should have them at most sporting good stores. I know Cabela's has them.

I believe Northland tackle used to sell beads with rattles in them in packages of about a dozen for 3-4 bucks. Check out some of your local craft shops/fabric stores as they often carry beads. There are also stores that sell beads, ect: exclusively for making jewlery. Talk to your mom if she is a crafter and she'll get you hooked up.

I used to buy mine from the Northland yellow bulk trays at some of the big stores. I would think they still have them...I've seen the clevises, blades, weights, etc. still for sale.

Northland Rattle beads are no longer sold. Not exactly sure how the story goes, but what I have gathered from little bits and pieces of the story, some older lady owns the patents on the beads. She wanted more money, Northland was unwilling, so she won't let them manufacture them anymore.

I found the mother load of them down at a little tackle manufacturer in southern minnesota. Can't recall the name.

Rattle beads became scarce due to the 1 and only factory for them went up in smoke in China. Not sure if they have it up again but they are sparse for sure.

Try Jans Netcraft or Barlows Tackle. They may have some stuck away?

    •  I use a Digger mount on my ATV and sled.  Its fast and easy.   I'm on the ice everyday testing and tweaking Nils blades. I rack the auger on every blade change and some days that could be 20 times so for the me the Digger is exactly what I need.  The clamp on the Digger makes fast work of securing the auger and removal.   The height of the Digger frees room on the rack for more gear.      Once in a while we'll take my buddies ATV out fishing.  Hes got no auger rack so we'll bungie the auger to the ATV rack. It works but it makes me appreciate the Digger rack all the more.   Any rack would be an improvement there.   In the past guys have posted their homemade racks and I hope they do so again.   
    • Currently have a couple empires. Most likely toss one of them in. If I go with a furnace I'll use a small plug in step down transformer 120v AC to 12DC. They are cheap as hell basically an oversized cellphone charger.
    •   You realize the only ones taking Calexit with any seriousness are conservatives. Which means conservatives are the ones falling for the Russian propaganda. Liberals say it sarcastically because conservatives think the country would be better off without the "coastal liberal elites" (even though California pays in $405 billion in federal taxes and receives only $344 billion in federal spending, meaning the rest of the country would be $61 billion poorer without California).
    •   As in the one that lets me use his cabin for Turkey and Deer hunting!
    • So Bear, please describe what your policy on those drugs now banned would be, in as much detail as you can.     I am really wondering what the alternative envisioned by the "stop the war on drugs" folks is.      
    •   Bear, I explained why we are stuck with the two party system.   If you don't like the two we have, you need to "pull a trump" and take over one of them.     Good Luck. 
    • Actually only one species of bumblebee so far.     I have no idea how one distinguishes the species of bumblebees.

    • I would suggest using non-oxy gas also!
    • I highly doubt it needs carb kits if only sat that long. Draining the carb bowls and spraying carb cleaner in there can clean things up a lot and loosen sticky floats. Should be a main jet on each carb you can pull to drain carb bowls and spray into and clean jet. Put in fresh gas with seafoam in it and new plugs and it will probably run. Impeller is a pretty easy job to. Should be able to find a video on u tube on how to do it. I would drain my carb bowls on my old 115 2 stroke every spring and you would be surprised at the slimy stuff that came out of them sometimes and that was just sitting over winter.
