Wow. Good point Nooksack. I had not thought of that. Granted the foot thickness will increase as you go up but be interesting to see paw in one to check the different scenarios that could happen. One of the most revealing things I ever witnessed was snapping a lynx trap in a two coiled #4 montgomery back at the shop years ago, followed by a good jerk.

We could start a new one. In the past this thread has become unstable when it got this large. Maybe we should archive it so as not to risk the rest of the forum.

Paul mentioned that we are moving the server soon. I know nothing of the process, but does it increase the risk of crashing or thrashing anything with this large of a file? Just a computer-illiterate question.

It's possible. I think the problem is mostly from the pictures that take up so much space. But at the same time I think we could lose the thread just as easily from the archives as from the active page. Might be best to not rock the boat while the server change is in progress.

Yes Ken it might be wise to wait until all the server juggling is done before archiving #6.

I think it will work. It's an idea that has been talked about for a long time and I am glad to see somebody actually try it.

I think it will too. I'm not going to try and over-analyze this,... all I know is it works good on smaller traps. I have a bunch of little #1 double-jaw Diamonds & Triumphs, and altho it's not generally needed for marten, mink will sometimes pretend they are a micro-wolverine, and start biting on things they shouldn't and escape,... and I know these traps have helped prevent that many times, and saved many mink for me. I don't remember finding traps snapped at sets using these because the inner jaw kicked the paw out.
I had kinda stopped using the Herter's #4 for wolverines, just because virtually every one would end up with foot damage,... and I hate that, plus that can be $100 less per hide sometimes. An almost 7" jawspread is just too much space to play in, for a wolverine who is trying to bite his way out of his predicament . Anyway, if all I do is end up with snapped traps,... at least I haven't hurt anything,... and a hungry wolverine will come back if the groceries are tasty enough. Nothing ventured, nothing gained they say,...

WB,

Have always thought maybe just a tab or two off the jaws on the outside of the jaw (underside when set), kind of like on the MB650's or MB750's would work too. Just enough to keep them from getting their mouth under the jaws, but not a full bar that goes across. I still think what you have will work just fine and am interested to see it this winter as I am sure you will get to put them to the test a few times.

Quote: "Nothing ventured, nothing gained". That's true, and it will be interesting to see how they work out.

TJ, interesting idea there. Just some short pieces of 1/4" round stock welded on the outside might be all it would take.

Remember the guy that modified these at the fling two years ago. I think it was a sleepy creek. Did it for the same reason you are.
Be interesting to get his feedback.

Internut has slowly been dying here. Recent pictures posted were from town and Europe. No, I'm not going for the free internut. I cause enough trouble without posting pictures anyway.
