TIP: Cutting wires
The manual suggests cutting the stitching wires to lengths of 3 1/2 inches. It turns out that the plastic cups that I use to mix epoxy are exactly 3 1/2 inches tall! This made the task of cutting wire very easy -- I merely straighten out the wire as it comes off the spool, stick the end of the wire in the cup and cut it off at the cup lip. A pretty fast way to accurately cut wire sutures.
