Odd titel but I couldn´t think of another. (and I´ve got a headache from yesterday :-/ )
This method I use for bods that are going to be based on a preprepared dio and I´m not 100% sure of where they are going to end up...or they are only intended for being on the dio for a short while (they will be used for something else later.."waste not want not" as Auntie Dorris used to say.
I use thin steel wire...this stuff comes in a roll and is nearly half the thickness as a normal pin.
Works the same on Nags.Here it was easier to just lay the hot "pin" onto the supporting leg and then fill with woodglue.
