Knocking off Mepps or rooster tails seems to be, buy the components off of the chart, and you are set.
Which bender do you have?

Mine say .041 max without the conversion kit but I bend .051 all the time. So you might want to give it a try

If your doing trout spinners I have a bunch of gold and silver panther Martin style blades I believe #6s. If your interested maybe we could make a trade
