I find it interesting how people hold the horn to put it together. I hold the upper joint inthe left hand palm on the bottom and 4 fingers on the tone holes and the one pad cup there. For the lower joint, I put the thumbrest in the notct between the finger and thumb on my right hand and then place the correct figers on the three tone holes, leaving the pinky off in the air like holding a little tea cup, with the thumb resting on the posts near the thumbrest, or sitting quietly next to my fingers off the horn. Depends what I'm putting on or taking off at the moment. Then twist the tenon into place. Fortunately my bell slides on with just the right pressure to hold it inplace so I have never had to rock it. 40 years of wear I guess, plus I'm still using the same artificial cork I put on the horn in january. Barrel tenon started coming off but I used contact cement to put it back on. The stuff never seems to compress.
