Tin Man... I asked the same question of Bob . He told me, and he will add anything I miss. He will stick the Eyes on and place the epoxy a small amounts at a time at the gaps between where the eyes are stuck on and the shank... the key is not to cover the eyes with epoxy. I have tried this and it creates a perfect round head after you do the usual rotation and the epoxy. the roundness also depends on how much thread is on the hook shank at the eye, because with a big eye you need greater distance between them to create a perfect circle.. But you do not have to. even with a small gap it creates a great head.
