Ah, you never received that special insertion tool that Sun provided. I
got one a few months after we some of our SS10's.....it came in a sun
package, with a piece of cardboard explaining it's use. It was...are you
ready?....a piece of plastic. On edge it looked something like at T, but
it had a very short "leg". It was the length
of a stick of ram. At the bottom of the leg of the T was a small grove
that ran the length of the piece of plastic, which you placed on top of the
stick you were
inserting....it basically gave you a big flat piece to push down on...it
definitely saved some wear and tear on the palms...
(Nadine mentioned getting some with SS20's...but I got one right after we
got some SS10's...so I dunno what they were first released with...)
I still have mine....but I don't know if I still have the piece of
cardboard, but I believe it actually had a Sun part number...
