Second I drilled the holes, often cleaning the plastic off the drill bit in between. To do this I heated the plastic with my embossing tool/heat gun and then eased it off with an Exacto knife. (Careful not to touch hot things like the drill bit and to work pointing away from myself.)

Then broke out my super glue. I’m using the gel kind because I am a bit clumsy with drips. The gel doesn’t drip like the liquid. I apply it to the hole and to one end of the paperclip. I like to use the pliers here to keep my fingers out of the glue. Sometimes I need them to force the clip into the hole.

Lastly, I’ve attached all the pieces. I like to let them sit for an hour or more before touching them. Superglue fingers are not fun. When they dry they’ll be ready for epoxy.
