(1) Provide an ample amount counter-clockwise TOK tension.
(2) Search for a pin that isn't properly rotated
(3) Remove most (if not all) tension
(4) Rotate the pin by either (a) using a claw pick to manipulate the pin or (b) using a diamond pick to push/pull it into the correct rotation
(5) Go back step (1) until they are all rotated properly
(6) Finally, lift the pins to the shear line
This method has been working OK for me so far. I have a five-pin biaxial which I can normally get in about 4 to 7 minutes (with isn't too bad for a newbie like me), but that's still quite a while. Most of that time is spent just on rotation, so you see why I want to find better means to do so. Also, all of my pins are FORE-style unfortunately (bought 2 cylinders and both had fore only - Lame). So I'm guessing with AFT-style mixed in it will be harder. I have tried the clockwise approach of raising to the shear line and then rotating, but I can't find a good way of providing ample rotation. My guess is that there's too much tension so I can't get past a false gate on the pin.
So, any suggestions that you may have would be greatly appreciated.
