I just did my first one and used light cure resin. Anyone have a better solution?

Do you sandblast the outside of the sleeve for a better bond? Never done one, I'm curious, too.
I did not, but I think that is a good idea.

This is my experience too. Using Blue Sky Bio sleeves, you may have to play with design parameters to get a tighter fit.
Those are the ones I am using.

I hold a soldering iron in the sleeve after its seated in the guide until the sleeve heats enough to melt the surrounding plastic to it
