Glueing In Weed Guards In Jigs?

Recommended Posts

I like to powder paint my flipping & swim jig heads, I don't put the weed guards at the time of the pour, I don't like the way the guards look after the heat from powder paint baking in the toaster oven. Tried to lower the heat but can not get paint to stick to the jig head. What type of glue do you use or is there some other way to powder with the weed guards in the jig?

 

Thanks

Make sure you use the gel, super glue GEL!!!!!  The reason is regular super glue will wick up the weed guard and won't hold in the hole. Loctite super glue gel control!!!

Everyone has had great success with the Loctite gel but me, I stick to the epoxy. The epoxy I bought comes in 2 containers with a lid. I simply squeeze out equal parts and mix, very little waste. Home depot sells it as a contractor pack. Around $20.00 Ive glued in hundreds of weed guards so far and its not close to empty.

Hey Don,

    On the Super Glue Gel, it does take 24 hours in my opinion, to really set and harden. The D2T I sometimes use hardens a little faster but still needs 24 hours to fully cure.

 

BTW what is the name brand of the contractor epoxy you are buying from Home Depot?

I usually wait 24 hours for curing but still sometimes have the guards come out, Also found that I would see the white after it cured around the base of the weed guard which made things ugly and messy. Not sure if I was using the wrong stuff but it was called Loctite Gel. 

 

Heres the stuff I use- Lepage speed set epoxy.

Best thing in my opinion about this stuff is are the containers and lids, not like the syringe style epoxy container that plunges out in "equal" parts.

Hey Don,

     Yes you were using the correct glue as it does leave a white powdery residue on a jig. The epoxy that you posted a link to, is that a clear epoxy?
