Orienting PM fiber in APC connector?

Have a question or want to start a discussion? Post it! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

How does one orient PM fiber to the angle in an FC/APC connector?   The
problem is one can not easily see the fiber axis when bonding to orient it
inside the ferrule (assuming you could even fix the fiber orientation as the
epoxy sets.  Do you have to bond the fiber in a PC connector with orientable
key and then tediously polish in the 8 deg angle? Is there some other trick?
Am I missing something obvious?

Thanks in advance.
