I am trying to remove the factory eyes from 6 8XD crank baits that I have been asked to repaint, and Strike King did not intend on those eyes coming out! I broke a scalpel and almost took one of my eyes out in the process. So far I have removed 1/2 of 1 eye. I am eagerly waiting y'all's replies.

I remove quite a number of eyes from spinner baits; but I am sure they are not quite as difficult. You will find that they are stuck good on one bait and pop right out on the next bait.

I use a eye dropper and isotone 100%. Do one side at a time. Couple of drops in the eye socket and let it sit for a couple of minutes, then do the other side. I have a flat edge pick which is much stronger than a blade. You will cut yourself with a blade. Work around the edge of the eye in several places. If it is still not coming out. I use the ball head dremel bit and grind it out partially. The heating up of the eye and glue will make it release to be prized out with the pick.
