    Ahhhh i get it now.Yes. For a day job I teach 1st Aid and health and safety related subjects, and Im a volunteer MR member in my spare time.

    Day job isnt doing that well down to the recession and as a result the volunteering suffers too - cant afford it

    Have fun !
    This looks akin to nailing a bubble to a wall, I have trouble floating a plastic duck in the bath.

    put it on gently and the meniscus should hold it. Failing that you can float a leaf or something similar and place the needle on it

    I understand the physics of surface tension, however my fingers do not and these hands that can work on PCBs at component level must have a natural agent that disrupts the surface tension on contact. It's like putting washing up liquid in. I will have to resort to lowering it in on a cotton or the leaf idea might work.

    Although the moss direction does work, you can find yourself in some woods where all the trees have moss and can also be on all sides, ! Also another method is that trees will grow more branches on the southern side due to more light exposure etc giving a ticking effect, these are guides not exact science Click image for larger version.

ID:	6755 this picture I took kind of knocks that theory also most growth was on the north west side, but this was due to these hazel stumps being in the bottom of valley so the light was bouncing of the opposite valley side and the bank and larger trees were blocking out the sun on the southern side. it's just a matter of reading the signs of the land to try and work out direction. The natural navigator book is a great little read as is Harold Gattys book
