Not bad. I fix my own eyes when they fail. Easy to do. Your right about coating the threads, several thin coats is best. You can fix those misaligned eyes, just cut them off and start again. Make sure you hold the razor blade parallel to the blank when cutting, go slow and don't nick the blank. Tape a white or bright color thread on the side you are putting the eyes from the tip to the shank. Gives you a plumb line to follow.

Certain satisfaction from fishing with something you crafted. Maybe the misaligned eyes are affecting the way the lure is swimming and your on to the next big thing!
Please release me, let me go.
