    I need to start pouring jigs as I’ve got plenty of lead and several hundred round balls already poured for my muzzle loader.

    I'm set up to pour 1/16, 1/32, 1/8, 1/4, round and minnow head and 1/16, 1/32 ponyheads. I built a 4cup fluid bed to powder coat.

    Initial investment was high, but it has paid for itself just like reloading and processing my own deer.

    I built a fluid bed as well but you don’t really need it to powder coat small crappie jigs. I just heat head up with candle or small torch and dip them in powder coat. Just have you a small pin to remove paint from jig eye. I only utilize fluid bed when coating jig heads bigger than 1/8.

    I do a lot of 2-tone heads, like black w/orange belly, shad gray w/chart belly, blue/white, chart/white, and I get much cleaner results, and more even coats, using a fluid bed. They are so cheap, using PVC fittings, that I just make one for each color and store the powder in it's own "cup".

    This.
    Then bake them in a toaster oven to harden. Make sure
