Well we all have our ways of doing this LOL and for me Id like to use the dentist tools but its like tying on the line I CANT SEE it lol. I have to put on readers to poke at them eyes. Thats why I use the forceps to cover the eye when dipping. If the paint is not in the eye for the first place then all good and that works for my 97% of the time.
I can dip a jig and go to baking with out digging out the eye.
Now after baking then I may have to brake out the eye.


OH WAIT I DONT BAKE MY own jigs. Have no need to I don't sell them and for the most part I lose them before the paint is gone and that is after days of use in a lake.
Now fishing a river for say sand bass yes the paint will chip but I find with paint or without the fish still hit it.

A Big Brown Truck left this at my front door Thursday.

I may fire it up this evening or tomorrow. Squeaky left a couple molds with me so I could break it in.

The jig heads look great it's just the eye problem. Thanks


I use the hemostats too and have found that I was getting stringers from around the eye area that would sometimes block the eye after baking. Process was clamp hemostats on eyelet, heat head, dip in paint and then reheat head to set the paint before baking and this was when I would get the stringers. Now after I dip in the powder paint I move the hemostats to the bend of the hook before I reheat the jig and I haven't had a stringer since. Also, less paint on the hemostats to break off. Hope this helps someone down the road.

No, not yet! The day after I got it, I found out a rehab hospital accepted my wife for inpatient therapy so I had to gut busy gathering & packing clothes & such. I don't know when I'll get to try it. I did just get my second mold off Ebay though.

Hey, Sqeaky, sound like you are quite busy. I'm back home as of late Saturday, been in FW for my Daughter"s back surgery. Them Hospital days get tough, but it's my Daughter and no problems. Surgery good and she is home recovering.

Saw your post about dropping out of the Jig swap #29. I am trying tonight to get jigs in the mail by Monday. Time permitting maybe we can fish Palestine when you are home.

Be safe while working on the Boat...

I left some powdered paint in my car. The powder turned into a smaller rock. Are they ruined, or do you think I can fix them with a mortar and pestal?

You can try it. I left a jar I bought on my lunch break in my car and it did the same thing. I tried breaking it all up, but mine didn't turn out too well. It was still pretty clumpy. I took it back.

Mortar and pestle actually worked! My wife insists that I tell everyone not to do this in the kitchen and also not to use your wife's flour sifter.

Tx, just looking at the photo, it looks like you might want to continue the "pulverizing" process. Just MHO. If you look at new powder, it's just that, powder, like flour. I could be wrong because of monitor res or old eyes but yours looks more like cornmeal. You might also try cutting in some clear to help it "Flow" in your cup. It'll probably still work as is but it may go on pretty heavy.}

I do believe you are right. I was so happy to have "fixed" the problem I didn't realize it. That is clear powder in the picture. I found a local powder coating company that offered to trade me powder paint for a few jigs.

Would anyone care to tell me how to paint the two tone jig heads? I'm pretty sure you're not using a fluid bath for this style.

I have done a few. I just paint one color and tap a brush with the other.

I cure whenever possible, It helps with gloss and durability just make sure your eyes are clear before curing else you will be cursing
