If you have one of these, you already know what I'm talking about
No matter what size screwdriver or how careful you are, somehow the slot in the bearing cup always gets damaged.
If you want to keep it nice, try one of these

I always thought they come out of the box nicked, chipped & scrached.

You might be better off with the yoke boss. No chance of damaging it, no sharp edges and lots of control.
Give it a shot and let me know.

Good tip Sal. I use a gunsmith screwdriver set. I can pick a tip that fits but that would be easier.  Bob

My son just take my whole plate and skids it across the garage floor as soon as I get it, then I dont have to worry anymore about how pretty it stays

He's not yet three but he's already a thinker

Come on guys and gals, get creative and come up with something on your own, so Alan can sticky this.
It would be nice to have a dedicated section for "tip of the day". I'm sure some of you have a few tricks up your sleeve.
Lets see it.Wink

OK Sal, I just cut a q-tip in half, inserted shaft into my dremel and used it to polish inside of some bushings. I did not have any polishing attachments that were small enough.

There you go Joel, very nice Wink. I know it's tempting, but try to keep it away from your ears Grin
