lure racks

6 posts in this topic

what do you use to put your new painted jigs on so when the paint drys it dry it drys around the eye of the hook and not on the head,the last drip.

for now i just use a old oven rack and let them hang from the bend in the hook?

i have tryed the powder paint and dont like it for the jigs with the weedgaurds thanks for the help.

My dad used a couple of 1x2's that he had bolts through with wing nuts that he tightened down to secure the hooks between the boards. he was using the spray cans when he devised this system. It worked very well. If you are dipping it might not work real well...

I took a peice of 1" angle iron and cut it in half and hold the two sections together with spring clamps. This way when the jigs cure in the oven, they don't drip off the head, but down the shank.

I used to paint spinner baits for a local company, and the racks we used, I found were very convienient.

Take a 2x4 and rip it in half so you have 2x2's.

Take a circular saw and cut slots in the 2x2's about 3 inches apart.

Next take window blinds, and cut them into 2 inch sections and place them in the slots on the 2x2's.

The curve in the blinds hold the hooks of the lures snuggly, allowing for easy painting, trasport, and storage.
