    When I sew snaps into a tail, I found a machine was much faster and easier than by hand. You line up the needle with the hole in the scale, turn it by hand to lower and raise the needle, move the part to align the needle off to the side of the hole, turn it by hand to lower and raise the needle, line up the needle with the hole in the scale....repeat sufficient times to make it secure.
