Are you looking for some place to stock pile jigs or what are you looking for.

Not sure quite what you're referring to, but pegboard is simple. Screw a couple 1X2 space boards to the wall cut either to the height or width that you want the pegboard, then screw the pegboard to the space boards. Hang hooks and have at it.

Here's a rack I made 30 years ago for jig painting and for a holding area while working with the jigs and still use it. It uses both 1/4" and 5/16" threaded rod and the rod spans are 14". The 1/4" rods are on the outside and 3 1/2" off the board. The 5/16" rods are 4 1/2" off the board. The different rod sizes allow smaller hooks [to size 10] to stay in place on the smaller rods while hooks to 8/0 stay put on the larger rod without sliding or jumping around. Depending on jig/hook sizes I can get up to 300 jigs hung to dry or while waiting for  painting. If I am tying hair or feathers the rack also works great for letting head cement to set hard. Its compact and has a place when not in use but I seldom have it there as I am always tinkering with jigs or paint it seems. Maybe $10 dollars in this and its handier than heck.

  They are not too cheap, but I like using them, the magnetic tool holder bars, they sell on ebey. They are as handy, as the pocket on a shirt. I have several in different lenghts, I screwed several around the work bench, where I work on making the jigs and painting. And I just use some to hang baits on, for storage, or to keep together till I get around to finishing them. You have to make sure that you get the strong ones, most advertisers will list how much weight they will hold. Only time, these won't work, is if you make jigs with stainless hooks, which in my case don't happen.

I hang my jigs from bead chain used for ceiling  light pulls.

Perfect spacing every time with no sliding... now that's a great idea!

  Another good thing to hang baits by, is a piece  of allthread. The threads keep the baits separated, and you can make it as long as you want.

A nice person who is good with metal made these for me. The smaller ones are cut from profile strips from the hardware store. They fit more than 120 medium sized jig heads in a pizza oven which means you can cure them three times faster than you paint them.

Nice. But I will say I don't like hanging my jigs upside down. If you get a little to much powder paint on them you get a cone head. Where as the ones from TJ's that stands them up right you don't.

Nothing worse than "cone head".
I too like TJs, just wish I had more sometimes.

Being located in Norway i have to try to make things if possible because of shippment cost.
The Tj's racks looked good so i did copy them sort of.
The idea came from either here or Tackleunderground.
The silicon is what i call "baking mat", just fold it double and stuff it in there.
