This special pine stick was a piece of scrap about three feet long. My dryer went out last week. It’’s amazing how much information is on YouTube. When I first dived into the project to fix the dryer, I couldn’t figure out how to get to the bottom of it. A few YouTube videos later, was able to pull apart the dryer figure out what was wrong and order some parts. The hardest part of the project was putting it back together. One final screw left and my shaking fingers dropped the screw down below the drum. This is where the stick came into play. I knew i had a few magnets. Took some ca glue, put the magnet on the end of the stick. Cut it down just a little bit. It worked like a charm not just once but twice. Pulling the screw out from below the drum.
