I fish a fair few waddies so i thought this looked like a better way of making thm consistent.

I may have slighty cheated tho haha. Pins on the left are press fit and the right adjustables are sliding fit

I bought the wire tool I mentioned earlier. The pins are enormous, 5mm diameter. Maybe ok for Flying Cs but way too big for shanks :(

Thanks Gary. I was thinking of trying one of those but I'll just try to make something.
