Now this is what I use to hang jigs on after they are tied.

This first one is actually to my left and you can see my other 2 Vises in this picture. This is where I hang my jigs I take pics of or ones I tied to just see or give as samples. Sometimes if I tie the wrong size of color or what ever mistake.


This one you can see my main vise and part of my tying station. The big white rack on the left is where i hang jigs I am tying for an order. I also keep some of the bobbins I don't have room for in the normal spot and all these are FL Wool Yarn.

Always bake afterwards. Makes them very durable.

I built a small upright like a goal post with curtain hooks that my girlfriend uses for tie back. And tied 60lb test from one to another. and hang my jigs on that to dry.

I've always cured mine.


Okay, dumb question here because I got my wrist slapped last time on this topic. What do you cure the jigs in? I used the oven at home but was told not to because of the possibility of lead poisoning. What do you guys/girls use?

I hold the head by the hook eye when dipping into the powder paint so there's no paint to clean out.

I use to use a small toaster over. I make slabs so the toaster oven was to small. I pick up a used electric oven on carigs list for $50.00 works great. No I would not use the wife's oven that would result in the big D word.

I use a fluid base to dip the jigs and slab but still get paint in the eyes.

I baked my first jig heads tonight. I did it in the oven, muahahaha. I forgot to clean the eyes first, man those things were tough as nails to get out. I finally managed to gouge them out with an old x-acto knife I found. That worked pretty well.

Thanks for the info about curing the painted jigs. I did some painting this morning after going to Lowe's and buying a $2 paint can roller/brush thing-a-ma-jig. I bent the ends to fit onto my toaster oven pan and then started painting. After dipping and heating them, I placed them on the under side of the now, curing tray. When I was done, I just slid the whole thing into the oven. It seems to work quite well!

One question though. The blaze orange heads turned this awful burnt orange color....kinda making them useless. How do I avoid this?

Anyway, thought I'd share this "tray" deal (if the pics work).

looks good, should work well as a oven rack. How are you heating your jigheads. it looks like the blaze got too hot?

I heated them all over a heat gun, on low.
