Sandbox handles

Normally once I start sticking castings on a locomotive, the model begins to come to life, but not this time. The odd proportions of this beast mean the chimney and dome don't add nearly as much as they would on a "normal" loco. 

Still, I'm quite pleased with the sandbox handles. Each is the top of a brass pin superglued in the hole. 

To ensure each is the same height, I gripped them in a pair of tweezers and shot the glue with kicker. This seemed to fix them but give me enough time to extract the tweezers.
