Any idea's for a rack for these little things.They have #12,#16 fine wire hooks.Need to airbrush them.Jig racks are way to big.I can stick the hook in foam but they fall out,move & we have 1000's to paint.

Also anybody know how to find people on the net.Old friend peter grant somewhere in ontario & old salesman Bruce napier,fireman from winnipeg.Tried yellow pages but it needs address to work

I've used strips of cardboard about 1 inch wide and 12 inch long, put the hook through the cardboard and bury the point into the other side. I've used rattle cans for primer then paint desired color and finish with dots of different sizes by using the back end of small drill bits and then clear coat.

How about a magnetic strip? Same idea as how they use them in restaurant kitchens to hold knives. Your jigs should be light enough that it would work...try with a fridge magnet and see...
