I plan on making a lot of lead worm weights and powder painting them to match my baits I was just wondering if any others that do this have come up with a clever tool or method for bakeing large batches at once? Some kind of stacking rack that the paint won't stick to? Any ideas or possibilitys anyone would like to share would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I don't paint mine but hate it when the get the tip closed up and I am in a hurry to rebait. So I string mine on a wire in the tackle box to keep the holes open. Maybe you could make a rack where you could string them up before baking.

I string mine up with wire so the hole is intact, when I am powder coating worm weights.  Every once in awhile one will get stuck and I cant remove it, but that is not the norm, usually with a little twist they come out just fine and the hole is perfect.  I also used a bunch of paper clips one time and just hung them on an oven rack, again a few were not able to be salvaged but most turned out great.
