Depending on the nature of it and what you’re allowed to handle:

X-Acto knives can be very helpful, along with fine tipped flat-head jeweler’s type screwdrivers.

Toothpicks, pins and needles aren’t my first choices, but I’ll go there if I have to. It can work.

Your biggest tool will be patience. Don’t rush through this. It also shouldn’t take all that long either.

also q-tips. sometimes when I get some in my bearing seat and a toothpick just aint cutting it, I’ll get a qtip.


#6

I use Leprechaun spit.

That’s just impractical.

I mean, first off, the smell. And those little leprechauns eat a lot.
