Re: [SergentEng] Assembly step 1, knuckle flash

I always hook the pulling face under the fingernail on my left index finger, so I can wield the xacto knife in my right hand with the correct portion of the knuckle facing up. I'm righthanded though, not sure how a southpaw would do it.

Jeff and all,

I should have been more specific with my original question.   How do you hold the knuckle while scraping the flash off of it?

X-acto knife (or even better a scalpel) and one of those magnifying fluorescent ring lights.  (Well, I don’t know about “easiest”, but that’s how I do them anyway.  In my experience you won’t find any flash on about 80% of them, but you still need to do the step for the 1 in 5 that does have some.)
