Removing Small Parts

Sometimes removing small, fine, and/or delicate parts from a sprue can be disastrous.  Using clipper, snips or a hobby knife can damage the part, or even break it.  A good solution to this is to get and use a good razor saw.  Carefully cutting the part of the sprue using a razor saw can help save the part and get it off the sprue without damage.

The razor saws I use are from RB Models.  The set comes with a photo-etched clip to hold the saw that will fit into almost any hobby knife handle.  The blades are thin and sharp.  I prefer to use the fine blades, as you can control the cut better, especially with delicate parts.
