      Great video Metro! I put a few of those things together years ago and they were definitely a pain. If I decide to assemble anymore I will use your technique! Thanks for posting this.

      The 1015 is probably the easiest one to assemble. Stange fellow that I am, I actually enjoy buying the bulk pack and assembling them. I got so I could do the 20 of them in about an hour. And then, I broke down and bought the MT assembling jig and cut that time in half. The assembly device is a good investment.

      Good Tutorial. As Dick mentioned, the assembly jig is a great timesaver. Another huge aid is a spring holder (http://www.nscale.net/forums/showthr...MT-spring-tool). Thanks for posting Metro.

      Great information and I'm inspired to try once again to get those buggers together! Several comments said they use the coupler jig. I have one, but have not been successful in using it. How to the things work? Any one want to do a video using the jig?
