Curious to know if the companys produceing traps are struggling with sales and cost vs profit margins
And what companys will stay afloat

On a side note im looking into getting a small amount of 3 newhouse jaws casted with a few improvements but was wondering the process of desighning etc
Just want to make a small batch nothing big


There i said it....

I would look at LPC jaws and see if they will fit. That would be far more cost effective than starting from scratch.


I have nothing clever to put here.

Contact Brian McKee at Southern Snares. He bought all the Sleepy Creek trap making machines.

Curious if 550 jaws would fit in a Newhouse frame? Or maybe the MB450 jaws?
