Not there yet so I do not know what you have been thru, I guess it is like some of these washers that take 30 minutes of trying until you give up and glue it onto a stick

It's about 12-16 hours worth. I could probably do a second set in half the time. Mine turned out good but I had to fight for it.

Yep! Popsicle stick and a tiny dot of CA is perfect for sliding in those impossible washers.
