    I have a video camera that has a small pot AGC whose cross-like screw is about 1/2"
    across. It's in the back of the camera and mounted in such a way that trying to
    adjust the pot requires removing the camera. It would be god if I had something of a
    screw driver about 1" long that I could either wedge into the cross or glue it in, so
    that I could adjust the AGC without removing the camera. Are such items made? If not,
    I'll be searching for a small piece of plastic I can use.

    Here's a look at the camera. See the back plate drawing at the bottom of the page on
    the right. That's as much detail as I can provide.

    I don't think I want to help someone who plans to worship a video camera as
    soon as they can adjust the AGC easily.

    ....or replace it with one from the same manufacturer and series that
    has a knob if available or any other that fits.
