A hammer. Usually used on delicate devices when a real screwdriver would be better. Refers to the habit of a Birmingham inhabitant (i.e. simpleton] to take a rather simplitic view of maintenance. Similar to percussive maintenance.
If it don't work - hit it.
If it still don't work, use a bigger hammer.
