Can't delete a few extraneous faces in my model

I’m editing a model that I imported as an STL, and I’m 99% finished with it, but somehow there are a few extraneous faces in my model that I cannot delete without also deleting attached faces that I want to keep.

Here’s how I made this:

  1. Imported the STL from
  2. Deleted the parts I don’t want
  3. Magnified by 10x (to get around a common problem with SketchUp and tiny 3D models).
  4. Created a solid, and merged it with one of the models via Intersect Faces With Model.
  5. Deleted the faces I don’t want

Most of the unattached faces I could delete, but for some reason, these remaining ones are still part of the attached faces they came from. I tried drawing a line to separate the two faces, but it didn’t work.

You have several small errors around the place. Too late at night for me to explain how to fix them. Here they are fixed instead.

Thank you very much. I would grateful if you could tell me how these particular faces didn’t have intersections in the first place.
