replacing a line eye

Recommended Posts

I'm replacing damaged line eyes on several of my rods. My question is how do I place the eye on the rod so l can be certain it is in alignment with the other eyes? And keep it there until I get it tied?

Two general ways to do this.  You can use hot melt glue, wipe the guide foot over the glue stick and then stick it on the blank.  Problem is, it's hard/impossible to adjust the guide position after you slap it on the blank.  What I like to do is get some elastic thread from the sewing dept at Walmart or wherever and tie the guide onto the blank.  Position the guide carefully and then begin wrapping the guide until it holds the guide in place.  Use a razor blade to cut the elastic thread.  It pops right off the guide foot when cut.
