Default Keeping Avometer case screws in order

If you are in the market for water pump pliers, the backing card for this Rothenberger/SPK plier makes a good 'slide to lock' receptacle for holding 6BA screws in their correct order. Up to 3 meters catered for simultaneously!

Err.... Fail. It might be ok for the next size up.

The 6BA test screw i inserted must have been fat with corrosion, because subsequent ones are loose.
