+1 on the air compressor, its the fastest way to get the dirt out of those holes. Then on those harder to clean ones, I also use a dental scraper thingy

LOL reminds me of my neighbors when I lived in an apartment. They used to play rap music at annoying times... I turned my 300 watt bass rig with 6x10 cab facing their wall and let 'er rip.

No more annoying music from them... I think I knocked their pictures off the wall...

The same way a pick does.. Mine is worn to the point that it's less of a rounded hook and more of a 90 degree pick. I had been using scalpels, but picking the dirt out was dulling the blades extremely fast. With the spring tool, I just push the tip into the screw head and the dirt crumbles and falls out.

Trying to bump up your thread count are ya? Seriously? We need a thread for this? Sorry man not trying to be a jerk here but dirt in the screw? Take all your electronics out and hit it with WD40. Clean and fresh.

You should clean it before WD40, save lots of money.

take out electonics, engine - spray with simple green or OD cleaner - rinse with a water hose - blow off with air - spray WD40 over the screws anad bearings ------- done - hahahahahahahaa

agreed "dirt in screws" - well be creative

IC....but you can see our confusion...that's a curled spring remover...Not a pick...despite what you have done to yours.

how small of exacto are we talkin.....the silver handled one that does not have snap off bits ? cuz when i think exacto i think of the snap off blade version...and that wouldn't work to good for stabbing the screw head's to remove the dirt.
