What's an easy way to remove paint from where you tie the line on a jighead? Sometimes the point of a hook just doesn't clean it all out. Are there any Dremel attachments useful for this purpose?

Phil, I use a Tie-Fast line clipper that I carry around my neck on a lanyard.

The clipper has a thing-a-ma-bob, dew hickey thingy that's made for cleanin' jig eyes.

Works well for me.

When I buy a batch of jig heads I have my wife bust the paint out. She has a little gizzmo she found at either Wally World or Krap-Mart that was made to do just what you are looking for.

Small finish nail on your drill. Works well but needs to be done before you fish. I buy a pack and fix them when I get home.

I powder coat my own and bust the eyes before I bake them, but anything pointy and small will work. Just do it before you go fishing.
