1mm Issues

This little section has been a real pain. Gluing rings of paper 1mm wide is really tricky because these things spring about all over the place. I’m trying to keep the work clean but glue and springs are not a good combination. If I overload it with too much glue it will hold but then I have a massive clean up operation on my hands in trying to get the surface to the standard I want it. Conversely if I use too little glue then I’m in danger of the whole thing falling apart.

I’ll have to leave it and wait for it to set before looking again and deciding what is needed. This is turning into a very messy, frustrating, and delicate afternoon.
