@GrantGoodale I had a bit of a play and discovered that the process below seems to work best for me:

- Place a small amount of CA on a clean surface, scrap plastic seems popular, I use a small pad of pot-it notes.

- Cut Ushi line a little longer than needed.

- Dip one end of line into the CA and attached where needed.

- Stretch the line beyond the other fixing point such that it touches the terminus point.

- Whilst holding in this location, apply a drop of CA using a tooth pick.

- Trim any excess line.

That is basically what I do as well along with using a drop of CA accelerator on the initial point.

I have never actually used accelerator. I must buy some and give it a go.

 

I am getting close to calling my Lex done:

For anybody taking notes - always use new CA. Rigging with old CA is not fun.
