Ben Duguid works in London, UK as a Technical Lead for The BIO Agency, mostly delivering web sites on various Microsoft based platforms.

He has run internal training sessions helping other developers get up to speed in the technologies he knows about, and tries hard to get others to do the same.

For what it's worth he is an MCPD in ASP.NET 3.5, and is currently a Pro-Tem Mod on LEGO Answers

Indeed, LEGO used to recommend building a tool with two axles, an angle element and two bushes for just this event.

comment DeathStar maintenance
@Artemisia - It's better to ask two single questions especially when they are very distinct, rather than have one question with two very different aspects which might result in two people answering each part, and no real way to mark either one as "the answer". For some suggestions on transporting models, see this question

comment What can I do with this steering wheel?
@SQB I guess you could use it anywhere you need a steering wheel and have a 4x4 space to fill instead of the usual 2x2 space.

comment What element is this a piece of, and how can I repair it?
Also, you could use the two pin holes to attach a gear to the wheel, and use that to support the axle.

We've covered some repair techniques already here which should work for light use - but you may find that no repair will give you the full torque allowance the part had previously.
