Model Airplane News - - 50 BUILDING TIPS -

Here is a sim­ple way to hold a small nut in place while get­ting the screw or Allen cap started. This works well where it’s al­most im­pos­si­ble to get at it with pli­ers or for­ceps. Use some sticky wax, the type used for hold­ing small items for craft and hobby projects. This stuff works well in hold­ing the nut in the open or box end of a small wrench. This wax is strong enough to al­low mov­ing the nut into place (blind) and start the screw from an­other side. The wax will con­tinue to hold the nut un­til it is com­pletely tight­ened, then you just re­move the wrench. The resid­ual wax left on the nut is a small amount, which will not in­ter­fere with any­thing.
