I only see the Pacman and Single "D" right now but they normally have the splined and double "D" also.

I have found that the Pacman will adjust a Single or Double "D" screw.

They are available from Homelite but prices went through the roof this spring. I wonder if that is a result of pressure from the EPA.

Those tools are not made like Cadillacs and a couple years ago the whole set price was a fraction of what it is today.

Last year this time it was hard to find them anywhere.

Blame the Bureaucrats at the EPA that have no clue about what really goes on in the world.
