Thanks Mike that was a GREAT HELP with the magnatized screwdriver, I been wondering about how to get that ball in there at all. I have "mini" screwdrivers but don't know if it's magnatized. If not,do you know where a fellow could pick one up? I don't think ACE HARDWARE has 'em that small.

Good morning all,
I have had great success with a very small screwdriver. It's the smallest of the set of drivers that I own.
It has somehow become ever so slightly magnetized. I can pick up a spring on the end. I don't try to impale the spring with the screwdriver. I can guide the spring into the pocket of the coupler with the screwdriver blade, then just hold the spring down with my thumbnail and withdraw the screwdriver. Works nearly every time.
I also use the same screwdriver to pick up (1) ball Bearing and insert it in the hole in the coupler. I use a .5 mm lead pencil to hold the ball while I remove the screwdriver.
Like I said, the blade is just barely magnetized. I'm not sure how well this would work if it were heavily magnetized.
Hope something here may help.
