Handling small parts – a “How to” suggestion

Posted By on January 1, 2010


There come a time when having even small fingers and thumbs isn’t good enough, let alone bigger finger like me, isn’t to repair. Here’s a time tested technique that might just keep your frustration level down. When you’re tinkering with small parts like electronic devices screws, try a dot of silicone sealant on the end of your screwdriver. Often it is just enough to hold the tiny screw so that it can be put delicately back in the correct spot. I keep a small tube in my toolbox just for that purpose; the screw top on the tube is just the right size for most small screwdrivers so I don’t even have to squeeze any out.
