Perfect carb screw driver

A while ago I got sick of trying to find a good screwdriver to pull out jets, Then I remembered the extra motorcycle tool kit I had from my bike, Blue bag that sits under the side cover in case you break down. Well the screwdriver like all the other tools are cheaper made but the Screwdriver has a handle and two ends for both types of screwdriver and wouldn't you know it the flat head is perfectly round so no wide part to have to grind off to fit in to get the jets out. Perfect size for a carb so it now lives with my tool set.

Sno-Tek Modded, 15"X-Track tires (Now has same X-Track tires but 13"x4" for better fit), 254cc engine LED light and hand warmers.
Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.
Ariens ST1027LE workhorse and going strong.
New 2017 Ariens Deluxe completely rebuilt after losing a fight with a forklift.

I use a similar screwdriver that is also rounded, but it's one of my chain tightening screwdrivers for my chainsaw.

The really nice thing about it is the "T" handle. You can press down and get a lot of leverage turning from the "T".

These seem to be the generic throw in as a tool with equipment thing LOL I have seen them included with many things including kids toys that need to be assembles years ago, The bike is just where I got mine.

Hollow ground gunsmithing drivers fit the bill or specific 1/4" drive jet bits.

Volvo has a similar screwdriver in their vehicle toolkit that has reversible tips (the brand is Felo, and it's made in Germany). I used it just this morning to swap out a carb jet.

I also have a Heyco reversible screwdriver that's apparently part of the BMW toolkit that is very similar to the Felo one. The Heyco is also made in Germany.
