    Hi, it's been a long time since my last posting here, and I am probably the last of the initial crowd to finally start building my two BigBoxes which I purchased from the initial release.

    And here is my first new question - what has become the preferred method to fix the square nuts in the traps - super glue, soldering iron to melt them in, or?

    eeek, not a soldering iron :)

    Superglue works but if the nut isn't quite straight then the act of inserting the screw will break it free, but I guess that is whilst it's being assembled so no matter. If being really careful then insert the screw first to hold the nut correctly in place

    I think I used glue and/or a tiny wood wedge to hold the nut trap in place whilst inserting the screw.

    I remember those first few hours of adding a dob of superglue to them all, then putting them all aside. I don't think any have ever come loose.
