Re: Trimmer tool

I found some ceramic screwdrivers on Ebay.  They are the size of jewelers screwdrivers and work perfectly on trimcaps.

Jim,

They are used normally for adjusting trimmer capacitors. The rotor of
the trimmer is connected to the adjustment screw, and if that side of
the capacitor is not connected to ground, you will not be able to adjust
it properly with a metallic screwdriver.
