OK. Now where can you get a set? I must be using all the wrong search terms on eBay, Baileys, etc.

I have yet to come across anything using the double DD or the Pacman needles yet.  Anyone seen them and had to adjust them?


I have only seen single D on solo and  craftsman tiller and splined so far on poulan and husqvarna .

We distribute Homelite, the pac man tool is the most popular.

I got a mini tiller in that had round smooth H and L with a single indented dot in the edge. It reminds me of the security fasteners we use at work somewhat.

I was able to make my spine tool grip enough to make adjustments on it. Anyone else seen this one?  Was on a craftsman ryobi  combo I think.

I bought two screw drivers from HLS when no one else had them.

I have the splined and a Pacman and do the "D's" with the Pacman

The splined works good on a 372XT which has slotted screws but there is a spline on the screws and a limiter sleeve. The splined screw driver pushes the limiter sleeve out of the way for unlimited adjustment.

Did you notice that the cap removal tools are left hand thread.

Post by: Cut4fun . on October 17, 2017, 08:19:46 am
Yep.

But I was thinking that wont matter to make our own from a longer bolt instead of using a drywall screw. 
Also someone said to use a #4 #6 machine screw.  Havent checked into that.

Just saving info for future.
