What does laminating my trap jaws do? Would it be worth while to do this to some of my traps? I've been think of useing 1/4 round bar on my #1 1/2's is this a good idea? Thanks

theoretically it spreads the pressure applied to the foot over a greater area minimizing vascular and bone damage. The BMP's reflected well upon this modification. I use 3/8's.

I think you meant 3/16" 'Lil Bit :wink:

Deke, why are you laminating coon traps? You better check the distance between the outside of the jaw & the dog before you do any welding.

I was thinking of lamination because I was thinking that it may help hold the animals better. It was something new to me and that I would check it out. Thanks for the info.

I wasn't trying to talk you out of it, was just curious. I have a bud who had me laminate all his coon traps.

If you want to & have the means to do it, do it. Compare the lammed to unlammed traps on your line. I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts after making a comparison between the two.
