RE: Glueing eyes,
You have more patience than me . Crank baits are something I can, If I really had to make them but they make me crazy. I do eyes with super glue unless they are recessed then I can let the epoxy do it's thing . Do you ever have issues with the epoxy making the eyes bleed . I got some eyes some time back that bleed pretty bad .

RE: Glueing eyes,
w/ Super glue, my experience is not with bleeding eyes, but if I get the glue on the eye, they get cloudy

May have some news before long . I brought this subject up with Larry Dall-berg I think he is going to address all sides of the issue and produce a video.

RE: Glueing eyes,
Just for the heck of it I tried one of those light cured CA pens on a couple of eye's and it worked pretty good. It's one of those "seen on tv" units with the UV light at one end and a pen like dispenser on the other. It's a gell and with the pen it's easy to place a small drop, set the eye on it and then just shine the UV light through the eye. Set's up in seconds and the places I've used it it's pretty darn tough. Stay's just a little flexible but not sticky. I've seen them in the discount places but most are still $5 and I don't know how many eye's one would do but it's just a thought.

RE: Glueing eyes,
Gave that a shot on plastics . Needless to say it didn't work . So I ordered some spike-it lure and worm paint . to do eyes on plastics . Crap better work . Something does because I have some plastics over ten years old and the hand painted eyes are still stuck firm . The guy that did them passed away and took that knowledge with him .
