    For the life of me I can't get these two washers in place on the stem of my Juliets. It seems like they will fit if I can just get them in place at the same time. Any help will be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Ok I guess the only trick is to use the screw as a holder while moving the glasses into different positions.

    Use a toothpick and a flathead screwdriver. Use the screwdriver to pry open the orbital part to slide the arm and washers in. Then use a toothpick in the bottom to guide the screw in through the top. X Man told me to do this, and it always works.

    No no no.... Easiest way... Right here. Put in your bottom washers and slide in the stem. Then use a toothpick to "align" the washers a bit. Twist the stem downward and slide in the top washers... Use the toothpick again to align them all. Viola. No prying necessary

    If you must use anything to hold them, use a drop of light oil, but spit generally works better and wont degrade any washers...

    I use a thread to keep the washers and stem together. Then a tooth pick to adjust the washers.
