Curing Powder Painted Worm Weights?

Recommended Posts

I know and have powder painted worm weights for texas rigging.  I know you can then then use them (paint chips easily) or epoxy over them, but is there a way to cure them?  This is what I'd like to do but I can't figure out a way to make the weight suspend in the oven without sticking to anything? bent paperclip maybe? Any ideas?

These are not worm weights but you can do them the same way. May stick a bit but I just twist the wire and they come off.I powder paint the weights then cure them in toaster oven.

I use X-mas ornament hangers. Buy them after X-mas and get a 100 pack for like 25 cents.

  Hey Brayberry! I'm doing the same thing. I have a heat gun called the Master-Mite. Gets darn hot. I soak round toothpicks for about an hour, then impale the weights on the wet toothpicks. I heat them over the heat gun for about 5 seconds, then dip them in Pro-Tec powder paint. Then I immediately return them to the airflow and watch then closely. About 5 more seconds, and they turn shiny. That means they're done. A quick dunk in cool water and I go to the next one. My friends say that they can't be cured, and they're not toughened. But I tell you what .... if you can cut that finish off with a knife, you gotta work at it, and work hard. I think part of the secret is to clean the worm weights first with electronic contact cleaner. And by the way .... if you're gonna use contact cleaner, do it in the open air. :o    jj
