    I hang my jigs on a cake pan with a cloths hanger bent to make a rack. Use long nose pliers to hang and remove.

    I use pot pie pans to hold the unpainted jigs and put them in a toaster oven and set the temperature at 300 to pre heat them. After painting them I use a short bread pan with notches cut on the top to hold a short piece or all-thread to hang the jigs after painting them. To cure the paint I put the bread pans in a toaster oven and use these time tables for baking time.

    1/8oz head 350 for 15 minutes

    3/32oz head 350 for 15 minutes

    1/16oz head 275 for 12 minutes

    1/32oz head 250 for 10 minutes

    Black, pink, & white colors 25 degrees cooler and two minutes shorter.

    Hope this helps some one.

    I made a rack out of coat hanger wire that fits in the little pan that came with my toaster oven, I have 3 wires going across to hang jigs from, works great and holds a lot of jigs. I heat each one with a disposable lighter then swish in my bottles of color, I have worked out how long to hold each size and shape head in the flame. Then I clean out the eye by passing a wire thru, then hang on the rack. When I get all the heads painted or pan gets full I cure them in my oven at 275 for 30 minutes (all colors and sizes). I can also use the rack for hanging jigs on as I tie. I fish a lot of bridge columns and my jigs sometimes get banged into the columns a lot, my method of painting and curing has proven to be very durable.

    You guys have me talked into finally painting some jigs. I only make round head jigs as of right now as a hobby, but don't paint them. I'm getting more and more into crappie fishing, so I want to get into painting them since I make them.

    I have enough tips here as far as how to heat/cure them. I wanna know where is the best/cheapest place to order paints?

    Thanks a lot guys!
