use a screw holding screwdriver to start nipples in double wall or deep rims. ullman d-2 or kd 2282 are good choices with a magnet on the other end for fishing cables. ebay or amazon are good places to get them. under 10 bucks. i also use the straight pick to start nipples.

head to the plumbing section at the hardware store and grab a wire brush for cleaning out 1 inch copper pipe. buy the cheap one with the twisted wire handle. chop the handle off and chuck it in your drill. use this to clean out bottom brackets. run the brush through then wrap a towel or rag around and give it another spin. squeaky clean now
