Is alumilite 610 foam strong enough to hold screw eyes? Can I mix it with resin to make it strong enough? If so how much should I mix?

No it is not but it is good enough to make a wire through bait. As for mixing resin and foam dont know. Never tried it. If your mold is good you can paint over the skin of the foam. Frank

I found this on Larry Dalberg's site. He said this about 610 foam. "Since it's urethane based, I've even experimented mixing it with Alumilite white resin. It makes a very tough, hard and buoyant part, but I've not got enough experience yet with the mix to provide much more info. I've tried about 50/50, it foams and expands about half as much, and sets up super fast." I will have to try it and see how well it works for me.

I won't be doing through wire stuff like larry. So I don't think the tough skin will work. I need to have the bait tough enough to hold screw eyes.
