5 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

i was wondering if someone could help me find out where i can buy glass eyes, such as the ones use in older fishing lures. If anyone can help me out it would be helpful.

You can make a decent replica of the old-style CCBCo. eyes like this:

Make an eye socket by drilling a shallow hole.

Drill a tiny hole in the bottom of the eye socket.

Paint the heads on some plastic head straightpins.

Push a cutoff straightpin into the tiny hole.

Fill the eye socket with 5 minute epoxy glue.

Rotate the lure for a few minutes until the glue sets up.
