Broken signum!

So annoying! While taking some photographs I managed to snap one of my signums.

I had nothing to lose so I decided to drill each part, pin and superglue. So far, so good ...

The signum was not lost ...


  1. same theing happened to me while clipping from the sprue. Pinned it and its all good.

  2. Hi Anon: tricky to drill but can be done with great care.

  3. What size of drill and pin?!?!

  4. Hi Larry

    The drill bit was 0.3mm ... which I also snapped :-( so I used part of it to pin the plastic part :-)

  5. Forgot to ask... what type of pin vise/drill are you using? Where did you get it? Those are some tiny tiny drill bits!!

  6. Hi Larry

    The pin vice is an X-acto one that I seem to have had forever. The drill bits are from these guys:

    ... but I'm getting bored of the breakages and am wondering if there are any stronger bits available ...
