Manipulation of single neurons

Does anyone out there have experience moving single neurons around under
the microscope.  I am using dissociated hippocampal neurons from P1 rat
pups to make networks in culture.  Would a blunt sucker micropipette be a
good way to do this?  Any other (low-tech) solutions? 
Please email me directly.
