    Does anyone have a source for this tool? I can't find them anywhere. Local shop just told me its illegal to sell them. I also came find one for an mtd weed eater but saw them on eBay a few weeks ago!

    I have seen the husky tool from Europe but $25 is kind of steep but I guess I will have to buy it if no other source exists?

    I assume you are talking about the splined carb tool? I've only seen on eBay, but it's the only place I've looked - almost bought one to work on my neighbors husq trimmer, but decided to try an alternative method before dropping that much on the tool - still haven't gotten around to it! Cheers!

    Yep - that's the one I looked at before - crazy money for that tool. Some have suggested removing the carb and making a slot with a dremel tool on the carb screws so you can use a flathead. Others have suggested that you can crimp small copper tubing that can grab the screws fairly well. Haven't tried either fix. PITA. Cheers!

    Also read the tubeing thing and something about like a Res butt connector for wireing?? I mean the dremel thing is all that makes sense, but here is the thing. The 372xp I just got had flat head screw things in the middle but its not really the adjustment maybe just a really fine system is all. I can move the L screw with this about half a turn and nothing.

    Huh - I thought the 372 carb screws had a decent slot that would allow full adjustment - do you mean the screw is limited? I do like the idea of the splined screw because the tool locks on so well - better than trying to keep a flathead on the screw with a vibrating saw - just ridiculous prices.

    No this flat head don't allow full movement. There is maybe 3/4 turn on the L screw and it does not make a difference. Bit I think its partly cause the catb is junked up.

    Yep. There is a flathead and a splined drive there is about a half turn of adjustment on the flathead. But if you want more, the "Master" tool, is the splined shaft tool.

    It's Husqs way of letting the end user have a lil adjustment, but not full adjustment.

    Yeah I had no idea how fortunate I was when I got one off of eBay a few years ago for $7.50, shipping included. There has to be something out there with that spline size and pattern.
