Hi all,
I use a sharp knife (chisel Tip) to cut the attachment points. This as
after placing the brass fret on a 6in sq ceramic floor tile (a 16=A2
investment) either placed on a piece of double sided tape, or with a piece
of removable Scotch tape on top of the parts. The tape prevents the parts
from flying off into never never land. The part is then clamped in the
smooth jaws of a pair of surgical forcepts. It is positioned with the edge
just above the side edge of the jaws. I then use a flat needle file to
bemove the burr.
