I will face and remove the flash.

Only the part will remain.

This is the much more economical version of the tool that Micro-Mark sells



Ferris' solution is much better and cheaper than the $7 these guys want for the same thing.

Wow, very very nice. I need to make one of these.  Mind if I make this to an article for the resources section.  Mind if I do that Ferris?
