How many of you guys pour and paint your own jigheads and bucktails?

Ive done my own weights for years and last year started pouring and powder coating my own jigs. I love catching fluke on something Ive done.

Ive hand tied all my own fluke rigs for years as well.

I dip mine in the fluid bed as soon as I pour them and then hang them and the pair cures pretty good that way.Usually have someone there to dip as I pour.

I used 3" pvc...a male end and female end. Also 2 2" piece plus a knockout. DrilledDrilled a hole in the coffeebottom and ran a fishtank hose through it. Use a airator for air. I used coffee filter between the male and female pvc...and thats a fluid bed. Make sure u use a air regulator to adjust flow of air into pvc

I do bucktails up to eight ounces and bank sinkers up to eighteen ounces. This past year I delved into making swing-hooks in addition to the standard fixed hook design. Also make my own teasers.

Quite addicting once you get up and running and certainly results in a higher catch when you are no longer skittish about fishing the sticky stuff!

How big of a pump? I tried to make one using 3" pvc and aquarium pump, but just can't get enough air flow/pressure. Going to try using a small compressor and bigger air lines. You got any pics of the 3" fluid bed setup? Maybe I'm just,doing something wrong in my design...

Here is a pic of the fluid bed I tried to make. Am I doing something wrong in the design? Going to try a bigger pump to see if that works.

Is there bottom cap or do you have it sealed a differant way? You need a flow regulator to adjust the paint so it boils slowly like a witches cauldrin.
