My order with Kadee H0n3 couplers arrived this week. I wanted something to compare the ZamZoodled couplers with. Assembled first four of them today. Except for the tiny spring in the middle rather easy to assemble, spite it´s size....

Made a new tool of a cloth peg, made the glueing much easier when I had something to hold it in. The instruction said to use the tip of a soldering iron, but I do not have an enough small one for that. CA glue worked to when applied with a tooth pick, so I could control how much glue landed on the coupler.
