Did this video help you?

colin p: Thanks again Don, I will be ordering a set of these soon. However, I found that I can use a BIC pen (remove the tip and ink refill) and it fits perfectly over the screw. Since I bought a new Husky chainsaw, I will sacrifice my 4218 to learn on.

Cody Taber: Good to see an honest video with solid advice.
Now that its spring and summer I'm sure there will be a gazillion hits on this.
My experience with the special adjusting tools, of which there are at least two different ones for alternate brand machines.
The pacman one is what I needed. And to get a good price last summer I had to order from SlowBay and I wasn't happy with the price.
I now know my personal best option is a hacksaw blade to cut a slot across the screw heads and the surrounding aluminum molded around them. Takes five minutes to do to another machine once you have done it once. 

Adam Barraclough: What do you think about the sets they sell on Amazon with different heads?

jonathan bosco: Thanks

Hillbilly peak: going to get one right now!

artymgysgt: I searched several big box stores for these and settled on a 4 piece set with common adjustment paid a little over $30..00 with express shipping. Hope it fixes my unusual problem. I think my Ryobi is putting out too many rpm's It idles fine but rips off the .095 stringer as soon as it hits the grass. I purchased two replacements and they were not the problem.

pei bossman: good one...

Nathan Deneault: Hey thanks for the videos.. I just ordered one.  Seems weird they would specialize the tool/screw for this special application.. but Oh well I guess.  Try rebuilding a transmission and get back to me on all the specialized tooling needed.. 

Taomania108: it's on amazon for $11... thanks for the great vid!

t dub: Damn only china sell this tool and it's going to take months to get it on ebay

Andrew Robinson: You can get a 4 piece Carburetor tool kit here. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DQADGUM/ref=tsm_1_fb_lk

OldSalt John: I just ordered this tool for work on a Husqvarna leaf blower.  The carb is clean but the unit will only accelerate with the choke partially closed. Hope this helps the problem. Really a pain to get the carb out for cleaning.

Thanks for sharing

anthony neilly: My troybilt has screws like a dimmer switch screw when you pull the plastic knob off. It has a flat side to the bolt. Will this tool work on it?

NO REGRETS: there or a lot of tools for the carburetor's but you can buy them all in a set on Amazon and Thanks for the great video's donyboy73

JohnnyBallou: Thanks! You saved me a fortune in repair costs!

grantman64: THANK YOU!!!!  My Craftsman 358.791070 32cc weed trimmer has been running like s**t -- it'll run fine with the choke on, but when I hit the throttle, it dies.  Was thinking I'd at least have to buy a new carb, but thanks to your vid I have ordered the tool you reviewed and expect to have my trimmer running like a top within minutes of the tool arriving on my doorstep.

Doc Riordan (SBBDoc): Just purchased 4 different types of these at Amazon at the price of $10 per. Hope to get my money's worth in the future, I'm sure it will make the adjustment easier. Good Video, I am subscribed and learning.

Bob Traweek: For $3 I bought a disk for my hand held drill (Dremel). I simply ground off the aluminum housings for the high speed jet adjustment screws for access to the adjustment needles. I used a hemostat to tweak the jet setting and had positive results. If I'd had a cutting wheel available, I could have notched the stupid needle head for ordinary screw driver adjustment. Stupid EPA.

Adam Gutierrez: Good job. Thank you. Started two today with your tutorial.
