Hi Guys, 
well I've lurked in the background of this site for some time and have now decided to have a go 
at building my first lure! Not one to mess around I've decided to throw myself straight into the deep 
end and attempt at making some larger  through wired poppers for the 30+ kg GT's I chase on the regular!

Which leads me to my fist post!! I feel I have most parts sorted and where to buy them, all except this one. Does anyone know what this part is called and if possible where can I sorce them?

Thanks in advance, 
Jason

If your looking at them for adding weight to the end of the lure then another option I have done is to cut the end off bean sinkers to size, drill out the hole to the right size and then glue them on to the timber after undercoating. Run your wire as normal. Takes a bit of playing around but as big hand made timber poppers vary in weight so much you can fine tune each lure to sit at a good angle at rest.

Thanks guys. I think the ones on Jann's and lurepartsonline
Are a bit small. I'd need them to be at least 10mm in diameter.
Allistar, I have seen a few images of guys lathing down one side
Of a suitable sized ball sinker. So I think at this stage your idea is most
Likely what I will have to go with for now!
Cheers

Sidney Cooke Fasteners used to make screw cup washers my box (no 12) has gross recorded on it, so very old stock . Made from nickel plated brass ,Made in Australia back then at least.
These unfortunately are to small for your requirements.

OR,, try a stainless steel rivet (with the anvil pulled out of course).
