i recon if you took them parts to a cnc man and got them cut out you could have a dozen made in no time and likely much cheaper than bought

Man, you Alaskan guys are some outstanding craftsmen! Beautiful work! Spek ....good on you for advising others what/how to do things correctly. Mthound, Id be interested in how you plan on rigging that trap up off the base. Spek, have you found a base plate or bottom rigging system that seems to work best? I look at the old Newhouse big iron and notice that goofy looking J hook looking contraption that holds the chain off the base and wonder if Sewell could have come up with something else...lol I kind of like a heavy duty rectangle shape piece of 3/16 th round stock (1/4 for wolves) kind of like the old Northwoods traps. Your thoughts

Again great work guys!

You have a talent with metal. They look really nice.

Why wouldn't you 'oil temper' them ?
Wouldn't hat make a better product ?


Just curious ?
