I didn't know this?? was created by Kelley
So there I was, with those cool new gondola kit I got from Gerd. I was thinking, Hmmm, If I used some of those supper magnets, I could hold this sucker together in all the right angles and with no hands, and could then concentrate on putting just enough glue where I need to.
The only one I did find was the round one, :( (The other tiny,tiny square ones are lost in the vortex, probably sucked up in my computer's hard drive,vacuum motor, or it was ingested.) Anyways I took the one I had, and thought, OH BOY,I will get these 2 pieces to stick soooo close together, and then I found out...stainless steel is non magnetic :(

Kelley, it's actually nickel-silver, but that doesn't help, correct, non-magnetic. As an aid just use something L-shaped and stick the parts on with some sticky tape. I do the same, I have a Teflon block and solder those parts on them too.
