I agree with powder coat. I don't use anything fancy--just tea candles to heat up the jigs and then dip them in powder coat, let them dry and then bake to a hard finish.

I agree with powder coat then bake it. If you dont bake it, the paint will chip off. I tried the vinyl on 1 batch of jigs - never again. Once the jig got wet and would sit in the hot sun, the paint would come off

Not sure how your planning on doing yours. But I heat mine with a Heat gun and cover the eye up with Hemostat's this way the eye is clean of powder. I hole the hook with a Pair of hemostat's while heating the jig then swap to a second pair to hold the eye this way there not hot and don't get powder coated on them. Then bake them in a Toaster oven they come out great this way. I do our jugs form 1/64 to 1.5 oz this way.
But now I have a big oven where I can do a few hundred at a time.

Also I made my own Fluid bed to fluff the powder up with. It does a lot better job then just dipping the jigs into the powder and there easy to make.

Default Powder Paint

When you bake to harden what temperature do you set the oven for.

I think the label on the power paint says the temp to bake at, but if I remember right it is 225 for 30min or something close to that.
