    *DO NOT MICROWAVE MICRA, ONLY WATER! ;)

    To takethe micra apart, I used microwaved water in a cup, let the micra sit in the water for awhile to heat up the loctite on the screws (You can also use a blowdryer), take two pairs of needle nose plysers and unscrew away (Opposite directions - Lefty Lucy on the top). You are going to have to replace the blade with something ... you are going to need to find a rubberized washer or maybe one or two metal ones to replace the blade.

    If you can't find something. let me know. I have a giant load of extra micra parts.

    Be very careful when heating water in a microwave oven, because it can suddenly blow up after you take it out of the oven.
    Common tap water (which contains impurities) is less likely to go whoom than bottled or distilled water.

    +1, easiest way. Or a metal file. Just grind of the edge, and maybe put in either a finger nail cleaner end, or just square it off for a fine flat screwdriver.

    You can do it, but I promise you will be hasseled for it! The TSA folks are highly-trained to spot LM's small offerings!
