I do pretty much the same as Lamar. I think I bought my battery operated drill at Harbor Freight for about $10. I usually go in spurts where I wii pour a hundred or so jig heads at a time. I'll then powder coat them (without pins), bake them off at about 350 for 30 minutes (TJ's Tackle makes a nifty holder that holds the hooks upright while baking, thereby avoiding "teardrop"), and then drill them. I then tie the skirts on using rubber and wire. Once tied, I'll slip a small rubber band over the skirt to keep it out of the way while I super glue in the weed guard. I'll let the jigs sit for several hours to allow the glue to cure and walaa..perfectamundo. It works for me.
