Yes, I suppose it would. OK, if you've going to stick a tool inside the 
machine, put a label on it saying this is not an original IBM part, it's 
provided for the benefit of future repaires who are too brain-dead to buy 
Bristol Spline keys :-)

For the record, my 5155 has the original Bristol spline screws in the 
monitor section, and there are no tools fixed inside it...
