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.

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
