    Dumb Question on Speed Stir

    Okay friends, this is a dumb question, but my husband isn't home and I don't want to wait to use my speed stir. What kind of tool do I need to loosen the screw on the back to put the batteries in? I am hoping I don't have to find one of those small "eye glass" screw drivers. I've tried a knife tip and that's not getting enough traction. Does anyone have any secret tools they used besides "the right size screwdriver"? - Thanks, Karen

    That's a #0 Philips screwdriver. Once you get the screw out, leave it out. My lid stays put without it, not even any tape. The alternative is a drill bit to just remove the head and be done with it.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.

    In case anyone cares - I ended up using a Stanley #1 Phillips head screwdriver. Luckily, my husband has the tool drawers in his workshop very well labeled! Now I'm going to test some water - Karen
