[youtube:http://youtu.be/N2NA5bR7OgE]

When I was a kid we liked to put coins on a railroad tracks to squash them flat. You remember doing that? We then used these flat coins to make fishing lures and some simple jewelry pieces.

In this video, I’ll show you what you can make with a flattened penny.

To make these fishing lures, I used:

A rolling mill (to flatten the penny)
Letter punch with bracket sign from a punctuation letter punch set.
Hammer
Small anvil
Fine grit sanding sponge
Bench grinder with a buffing wheel
Transparent nail polish (to protect the copper from oxidizing)

Final assembly of the bait includes:
Treble hook with feathers
Two split rings
Fishing swivel with a clip
