Re - I have had a lot of experience with a lot of very small surface mount components
Ah yes, the dreaded 'ping', brings dread to the heart of any modeler
fitting that last 'impossible to purchase tiny screw or similar. Also applies to cars ! I once lost a very important spring (non purchasable item) while attempting to fit it to a part on my engine, 'PING'. Turned a double garage upside down looking for it for hours.
To avoid going insane, I left it till the next day and then went back to try again. Needed to put my boots on (had been wearing safety jandals the day before), boots were up on a box a few feet off the ground, put one on and felt something at the end, tipped it out and you'll never guess what that was😭😠☹️😀😊
