I'm looking into buying a wire former to make some spinners and looking for suggestions on which is the best and economical in everyones opinion. I have used the one made by the Worth and seems to work ok but is there a better one out there. Thanks

Fishtopher Thanks a lot more people using pliers than I expected with all those supposedly easy to use wire forming tools out there

I use 1 pair of needle nose (no round nose or anything), a wrench like pair of pliers, and a tiny screwdriver. Not the best loops, but they are fine.

I finally got to play with it last night. I think with practice it will do fine. In reality, a nice pair of round-nose pliers would do the job too, but a special-built tool is nice for the thought-out extras. Like the split-ring pliers (the hook in the nose of the pliers). Those will come in handy.

I use Siwash hooks with an open eye for mine. Don't like building the hook onto the spinner for storage and tangle reasons. Personally I use 2 different wire tools to make mine. One has the solid block at the twisting spot and the other has the slot. I use the solid for making the bottom loop and the slotted to make the top.
